"Baunilha e chocolate" ("Vanilla and chocolate") was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in Portuguese by Tó Cruz.

The song is inspired by urban music and features Cruz singing to his "sweetheart with white skin" while musing on their interracial relationship (Cruz is black). He suggests that this could only have been made possible via the intrepid maritime history of their country, and sings about the spices and cultural knowledge that were brought back to Portugal as a result of this history.

The song was performed sixteenth on the night, following the United Kingdom's Love City Groove with "Love City Groove" and preceding Cyprus' Alexandros Panayi with "Sti Fotia". At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 21st in a field of 23.

It was succeeded as Portuguese representative at the 1996 contest by Lúcia Moniz with "O meu coração não tem cor".
