ChocolateBet: March 24, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1 chocolate egg
Smooth Milk Chocolate Truffle Egg
Very Good - Dove chocolates have a nice richness and smooth texture that balances out the sweetness in a way that is not always achieved with other chocolates.
Wt. 0.90 oz. (25.5 grams)
Calories: 150 calories
Cost: $ 0.79
Purchased from: Walgreens, in Palo Alto, CA

This chocolate egg will be the last (I think) in the Easter-related chocolates this week. Chocolate "theme weeks" are always fun.

Chocolate Eggs in the News
Reports of very large chocolate Easter eggs surface from time to time. Apparently the largest egg to date was made in Belgium. The egg measured 8.32 meters (27 ft) high and was made of at least 50,000 bars or around 2,000 kg of chocolate. (This fact appeared in a 3/24/08 article entitled "Giant chocolate Easter egg made in Brazil" about a slightly smaller 160 kg (352 lb.) Brazilian egg, courtesy of the Russian News Information Agency.)
