ChocolateBet: June 15, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1 serving
Jean-Philippe Patisserie (Jean-Philippe Maury is the chef.)
Chocolate Covered Strawberry with (chopped) Hazelnuts
Very Good + - nice big, sweet strawberry, good chocolate
Wt: 60 grams (estimate)
Calories: 180 (estimate)
Cost: $4.00
Purchased from: Jean-Philippe Patisserie, in Las Vegas, NV

There are a few different kinds of chocolate-dipped strawberries to choose from in this shop - along with many other very tasty looking crepes, pastries and cakes, gelato, etc. This patisserie is located in the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, and also features a 27-foot chocolate fountain behind a plexiglass-type wall. (Approximately 2,000 pounds of melted white, milk and dark chocolate are kept warm enough so that they flow down different levels of the fountain.)
