No its not like Aero, not the bubbly one anyway. The chocolate bar is really smooth sans bubbles.

There's an Italian wine called Bracchetto d'Acqui that I think goes fantastic with chocolate. It's a red sparkling wine, just a little on the sweet side. Great stuff!

me too. If I'm going to indulge a small piece of dark chocolate is the thing with fresh orange slices.

I also love Lindt Intense Orange, they must all be dark though. 70% cocoa or more!
Snip, there is a Lindt factory about 35 minutes from my home. YUM!

Chocolate Red Wine Bundt Cake

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch process)
1 teaspoons baking soda
teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cups dry red wine
Confectioner's sugar, for dusting
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan. In a bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar at medium-high speed until fluffy, 4 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until incorporated. Add the vanilla and beat for 2 minutes longer. Working in two batches, alternately fold in the dry ingredients and the wine, until just incorporated.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake for 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn it out onto a rack; let cool completely. Dust the cake with confectioner's sugar and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

I would have to say my favorite chewable combination would be chocolate and peanut combination. Peanut butter cups, chocolate and peanut butter bars, balls, squares, pie, and any other way you can get it into me.
