The Accidental Wine Company

September 24, 2009

Here’s how to save up to 40% on wines:

Accidents happen every day in the world of wine. A bottle breaks and stains its neighbors, a new label design replaces an old established one, or a winery just closes its doors. A soiled, retired, or discontinued label is suddenly and simply less valuable… We will choose from a variety of wines with blemished labels that restaurants, wine stores, supermarkets and hotels don’t want to sell for that very reason. Because they are so persnickety we can buy these wines for less and so can you.

French rabbit is an eco-friendly wine from the Boisset Winery in France. The most noticeable feature is its juicebox-like packaging, which is composed of polyethylene, aluminum foil, and paperboard. This makes the container easy to open, shatterproof, resealable, and 100% recyclable. Packaging aside, the actual wine has gotten solid reviews from Wine Spectator and other critics. French rabbit is available in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Bubble Chocolate, which debuted this past June, is sorta like normal chocolate, but not. The main difference is that it has HUNDREDS OF TINY BUBBLES IN IT. Yes, this chocolate is infused with bubbles of varying sizes that create a unique texture when you chew it.

From BubbleChocolate.com

[The] bubbles enhances the mouth experience because the resulting structure causes chocolate to melt more rapidly across the tongue…Your mouth-feel will move from slightly dry to moist and creamy. This occurs when your taste-bud receptors are drawn to the chocolate bubbles as they begin to melt.

The package contains three bars, each a different flavor (60% Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and Coffee).

Available at Bubble Chocolate’s website

Update: From comments, there is apparently a similar product in Europe called the Aero bar. Aero was introduced by Rowntree Mackintosh chocolate company in 1935, which was later acquired by Nestlé in 1988. Bubble Chocolate, created by entrepreneur Frank Drab, is the first aerated chocolate to be marketed in the United States. I guess we’re only about 70 years behind Europe’s chocolate technology. Aero bars available at Amazon for $20.
