About this Event
This GNO is like a mini-retreat to escape the grind and connect with girlfriends because joy must not be quarantined!
You have eaten chocolate all your life, but have you ever really tasted it? This is your night for Chocolate Therapy! In this 2020 style GNO, you’ll experience a virtual chocolate tasting led by Sarah Beth Yeli, Founder of Yelibelly Chocolates.
Your tasting begins with a short history of chocolate and a discussion of how cacao is grown and produced into the delicious melty treat we all love. You’ll then eat your way through an extensive guided chocolate tasting. You and your friends will learn to use all five senses to enjoy and discover the flavor profiles of chocolate from different cacao-growing regions of the world. While tasting chocolate, participants learn about how cacao is grown, manufactured, and turned into the delightful and melty treat you are enjoying.
For those who enjoy wine, we’ll discuss wine pairings along the way. The wine varietals for pairing can work with anything you have on hand. But if you want to pick up wine for this class, grab some fruity dark reds, like Shiraz, Cabernet, or Merlot. For those who prefer lighter/whites we’ll discuss Rosé and Champagne pairings as well.
We’ll send you everything you need to follow along and learn to taste chocolate at home on your own, with just your bestie, or host a small group for a true “GNO at Home!”
Your ticket includes access to the live and interactive virtual chocolate tasting class plus individual chocolate tasting boxes (shipped directly to you) filled with:
- Samples of cacao beans and nibs
- 5-6 craft chocolates of various origins
- Samples of bonbons and truffles from Yelibelly
- Candy cups

If you choose to be a hostess, in addition to the great discount on tasting boxes for 6 ladies, you’ll receive a “6pc Chocolate Wasted” box a Yelibelly original filled with Chambord, Amaretto, Irish Cream, Rum, Kahlua & Coconut truffles!
In addition to the live, interactive tasting class, you’ll enjoy a guided meditation led by Megan Pokeart, as well as connecting activities throughout the night in true, HeartStories fashion.
*Please note, sales end on Sunday 9/27 to make time for shipping your tasting boxes.
