ChocolateBet: October 30, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1 oz.
Old New Orleans - French Roast Coffee and Cacao Nibs dark chocolate bar
Good + - Very Good
Wt.: 1 oz. (28.3 g.) out of a 3 oz. (85 g.) total bar
Calories: 147 calories (estimate) in 1 oz.
Cost: $5.99 for 1 bar
Purchased from: Natalie's Candy Bar, shop at DFW Airport, in Dallas, TX

This Old New Orleans "72% dark" bar from distributor and importer, Redstone Foods (Carrollton, TX)*, was flavored with ground coffee and cocoa nibs was much like I imagined a fusion between Old New Orleans + Texas might be -- bursting with flavor and anything but bashful. It became a bit more of a mouthful (i.e. more brittle and harder to bite into) when cold; but that is true of many chocolate bars, especially thicker ones.

*As part of their private label offerings, Redstone Foods also markets a line of Redstone's chocolate bars, including today's bar.
