ChocolateBet: December 24, 2006

Chocolate of the Day:

1 square of chocolate
Golden Gate National Conservancy
"Alcatraz Extreme" Dark Chocolate bar.
Weight: .5 oz. bite / 3 oz. (85 g.) in total bar
Calories: 83 calories (estimate) (~ 166 calories per oz. for this bar)
Cost: $5.00 for 1 bar

The artwork and graphics on the packaging for this "Alcatraz Extreme" bar were compelling, and a part of the proceeds from sales of these chocolates goes to a good cause -- San Francisco parks.

The chocolate was OK. It had been sitting in my car for awhile, and this may have affected its taste. It was a 75% cacao dark chocolate bar.

Sometimes it seems it's more difficult to get a well-balanced taste with dark chocolates with more than 70% cacao. But, I'll have to keep sampling different brands over time to see if this is really true.
