TCHO Drinking Chocolate Contest: Official Rules and Details

Yahoo! You’re one step closer to becoming the winner of TCHO’s Beta Drink Contest!

Beta programs have been integral in TCHO’s chocolates. This co-creation method invites chocolate enthusiasts to create, taste and give feedback on the product, resulting in thousands of recipe iterations over the years and extraordinary chocolate.

Now, for the first time ever, we are extending our Beta Program to include drinking chocolate. Thats right, co-creationism in liquid form — and the winning Beta drink recipe will be featured in our San Francisco flagship store for an entire month. You, and your delicious chocolatey beverage creation could be famous! So … what’s next?

A few tips & tricks to keep in mind:

  • The winning Beta Drink will knock your (and our!) socks off with amazing flavor combinations
  • When it comes to ingredients used, less is more!  The winning drink will be re-created each and every time someone orders your drink in our Pier 17 store, so keep it simple and delicious! (We suggest 4-6 ingredients total)
  • No booze allowed — as much as we love our TCHOtini’s, and the endless adult beverage possibilities with TCHO, this drink will be sold in our Pier 17 Store, and must be appropriate to chocolate-lovers of all ages

Judging Criteria:

*This is where any extra pizazz or ‘wow’-factor can be rewarded, let that creativity flow!
