ChocolateBet: August 26, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1 piece
Dark Chocolate Almond Bark
Very Good
Wt: .5 oz. (14.1 g.) (estimate)
Calories: 75 calories (estimate) in 1 piece
Cost: $ ?
Purchased from: Godiva Chocolatier, in Portland, OR

It's hard to determine the exact price of each chocolate when you buy several "in bulk." Higher-end chocolatiers are charging roughly $20.00 - $70.00 per pound ($1.25 - $4.37 per ounce) of chocolate these days. (Should I be investing in some fair trade cocoa farm somewhere?)

If I am saving money by buying fewer coffee lattes and bottles of water, does this savings help justify my daily chocolate habit? Only my savings account (or the lack thereof) knows for sure...

And now, I will donate $50 to the Second Harvest Food Bank, after feeling guilty for even having this conversation with myself.
