The last time I tried a ginger chocolate bar, it proved too intense for me. Not so this time!
If you, like me, would rather eat your coffee than drink it, you’ll enjoy this bar.
I love almonds. Smokehouse, salt and vinegar, habanero barbecue, you name it. Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind eating almonds with my daily Bible readings, except the blog isn’t called “Almond Book.” I have made my bed, and now I must sleep in it.
Well, that was a strange experience.
Look, I rate everything a four, because I love chocolate, and Endangered Species’ darkest dark chocolate bar? No exception.
There’s a story behind this bar. Awhile ago, I swung by Kroger with my Plan X Media partner-in-ministry, Ash Green, to restock my chocolate supply. The standard price for the Vosges caramel bar you see above was $5.49, and while I like caramel well enough, I prefer straight-up dark chocolate, so I normally wouldn’t have given it a second thought. But, as Ash pointed out, the bar was on sale for $2.79, an absolutely crazy markdown. He talked me into grabbing the Vosges bar on sale, and I’m glad he did. This is the good stuff.
Theo’s 70% Dark Chocolate is neither my favorite pure dark chocolate (that would be Equal Exchange’s Panama Extra Dark), nor my favorite offering from Theo’s (that would be their orange chocolate), but it’s still a good chocolate.
What happens when you take the darkness out of Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups? You still get something tasty–and that’s saying something, given how much I like my darkness.
Justin’s makes a great peanut butter, and their peanut butter makes for a great peanut butter cup.
Look, I’m not going to tell you how to live your life. But given a choice between drinking my coffee and eating it, I’m taking my caffeine via chocolate bar every time. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to get your coffee fix than Chocolove’s Dark Chocolate Coffee Crunch.
