Godiva joins the vodka parade

As some cads used to say in the unenlightened days before gender equality became the norm, "Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker."

The reference, obviously, was to how to seduce a lady. Nowadays, we recommend better manners, but the old candy vs. liquor thing won't go away.

Rather than pit the two against each other, the drinks company Diageo has teamed up with Godiva Chocolates to launch a pair of flavored vodkas -- Godiva Chocolate Infused Vodka and Godiva Chocolate Raspberry Infused Vodka.

The cocoa-filled spirits are the first chocolate vodkas to carry the Godiva name. Each flavor is five-times distilled to smooth out any rough edges. Diageo suggests serving them chilled or on the rocks.

Suggested retail prices: $29.99 for the 750ml bottle. And, just in time for Valentine's Day.

I am not a fan of flavored vodka. Never tasted one I really liked ... until I tasted the Godiva chocolate vodka at the "Wine and Dine for the Arts" [in Albany, NY] last weekend. Absolutely divine! Authentic, natural chocolate flavor with a fabulous smooth kick.
