ChocolateBet: March 10, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1 piece
Chuao Chocolatier - Choco Pod
"Passion" - Passion Fruit Caramel
Very Good
Weight: 11 g (0.388 oz.) per piece/pod / Total package was 2.3 oz. for 6 pieces/pods
Calories: 50 calories for 1 piece/pod
Cost: $5.99 for total package of 6 pieces/pods
Purchased from: Whole Foods Market, in Cupertino, CA

Today's individually wrapped chocolate pods from Chuao Chocolatier (Carlsbad, CA) were very good. The "Passion" pods were filled with bright passion fruit caramel flavor and covered with dark (60% cacao) chocolate.

I would have enjoyed it if it were a little less sweet, but they were still quite nice. Wanting to be able to taste the chocolate flavors, and not the sweetness, seems to be my preference these days.
