ChocolateBet: September 22, 2007

Chocolate of the Day:

1 bite
Mackenzies Chocolates
California Banana Slug
Weight: about 1 oz. per slug
Calories: one bite = 60 calories (estimate)
Purchased from: University of California, Santa Cruz, campus bookstore

Yesterday my daughter moved into her college dorm (about an hour away) to the University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC). The UCSC mascot is the banana slug.

In honor of her departure and her new school, I ate a bite of a very realistic-looking yellowish banana slug -- which was filled with, to my relief, dark chocolate.

I bought this chocolate slug earlier this month when we first took a trip to look at her dorm room and went to the UCSC bookstore. (The slugs that came in three or four different chocolate flavors/versions.) The slug was so convincing, that I could only manage to eat one bite of the slug's tail.

Mackenzies Chocolates is a local Santa Cruz chocolatier.

The California Banana Slug (about 1 oz. per slug) is made by Mackenzies Chocolates of Santa Cruz.
