ChocolateBet: June 14, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:
2 "sticks"
Pieterman (Holland)
King-Lion - 10 quality sticks (cocoa "cigarettes")
Good+; these are better than I thought they'd be, and they're a bit of fun
Wt: 5 grams for 2; 25 grams (7/8 oz.) total "pack" of 10
Calories: ~31 cals (estim. - no calorie info listed on pack)
Cost: ?
Purchased from: ? possibly candy shop in Burlingame that may have closed.

Hmmm. I need to find my old receipt for this one.

This year I've planned several chocolate-related theme weeks. I contemplated doing a "chocolate and smoking" week. But, I couldn't find enough chocolate or cocoa cigars, cigarettes and matches in time to get this started today. I don't smoke; but I do eat chocolate. These Pieterman "cigarettes" are skinny milk chocolate sticks wrapped in white papers. So the chocolate inside looks a bit like tobacco. (See image above and to the right.)

Re: other brands of candy cigarettes...
After doing a Google search on Pieterman, I found this web page (see link below).
You can scroll through a wide variety of images of candy/cocoa cigarettes from different parts of the world.
