TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) –   Many Tucsonans are waking up with a bit of a sugar hangover Monday morning. Hundreds of people turned up for the Rincon Rotary Club's Taste of Chocolate benefit on Sunday.  

It was like Willy Wonka, Tucson style with everything from Mexican-inspired chili chocolate, to a chocolate river and even a chocolate mole taco. Dozens of local restaurants and individuals competed in four categories and were judged on presentation, texture, taste and appearance.

Creative Catering won three of the four categories and Eclectic Café won the fourth category. The proceeds benefit the club's charities and a scholarship fund.
