ChocolateBet: August 28, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1 serving (1.4 oz.)
Sconza Candy Company
Chocolate Toffee Pistachios ("roasted pistachios covered in rich toffee & milk chocolate")
Very Good - nice combination of chocolate, toffee, pistachio nuts
Weight: 1.4 oz. (40 g.) serving; 5 oz. (141 g.) in total package
Calories: 210 calories in 1 (1.4 oz.) serving
Cost: $5.99 for total package
Purchased from: a shop in the Portland Airport (PDX), in Portland, OR

This tasty combination of chocolate, toffee and crunchy pistachio nuts was, I think, the last chocolate from my Portland day trip (made on a Saturday earlier this month).

I always get a kick out of hurriedly buying some chocolate in an airport right before boarding a plane, thinking it is from that town/state where the airport is based -- and then finding out the chocolate is made in my own backyard.

In this case, Portland and the San Francisco Bay Area (where I live) are quite close together, so I wasn't as surprised to find that Sconza Candy Company was based in Oakland, CA. (Part of the package label is shown above right.) I'll have to find out where else I can find Sconza chocolates/candy closer to home.
