On this week’s episode of Straight From the Source, host Clay Gordon celebrates the International Chocolate Awards with a program all about rating, reviewing and judging chocolate. How are rating systems for chocolate developed? Clay describes his rating system which includes “folksy” descriptions combined with numerical ratings. From mass marketed to premium chocolates, learn more about the ways in which we objectively view products and how to tell the good from the bad and everything in between. This program was sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

“Chocolate is a very very complicated product, even when compared with wine. One of the things chocolate does not have is its own vocabulary to describe it.”

“When you buy into a reviewer – you’re buying their taste and their experience.”
