A very unusual concept has been launched in the US just in time for
the summer - the chocolate barbeque.

Diva Chocolates has launched a line of five chocolate grilling rubs and spice blends, which it claims is ideal for seasoning beef, poultry and pork.

All Diva Chocolates rubs use either roasted cocoa beans or unsweetened cocoa powders, which pair well with the smoky richness of grilled meats.

The Diva Chocolates line includes Mocha Java Steak Rub, Orange Chocolate Chicken Rub, Spicy Cocoa Rib Rub, Kickin' Chocolate Beef Rub and Cocoa Fennel Burger Mix.

"Using chocolate as a seasoning for meat gives a gourmet edge to grilling,"​ said Julie Berlin, co-president of Diva Chocolates.

"We combine the goodness of chocolate with uncommon ingredients, such as orange peel, lemon grass, espresso, cinnamon, coriander and fennel to create a flavour sensation. Once you try a Diva grilling rub, you'll find it hard to go back to traditional barbecue seasoning."

Diva Chocolates is a privately held company based in Portland, Oregon. Founded on the philosophy that chocolate should be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this rather innovative company seeks to combine chocolate with unique ingredients to bring new chocolate creations.
