These are fun bars. I had tried Redstone's Jalapeno milk chocolate bar with peanuts before and liked it. My only complaint with this 72% cocoa Red Chili bar was that the chili and curry flavorings seemed to be somewhat unevenly distributed in the bars. One bite might be mild; and the next bite in the same bar might contain a spicy mouthful of curry and/or chili. I shared some of this bar with others at work, and one individual bit into more curry than he bargained for. Trick or treat. It's Halloween!

Halloween is a big chocolate holiday. For the past two years I've been trying to get a hold of a chocolate skull or something that might tie in with the Day of the Dead celebrations this week. I ordered a chocolate skull for Halloween, but shortly after I submitted my order, the company sent me an email message saying the item was discontinued. It's a pity. Next year maybe...
