ChocolateBet: March 1, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:
1 serving
(Chocolate Organico Artesanal)
Good + - Very Good
Wt.: 30 grams (~1.06 oz.) in each of the six different pieces/flavors
Calories: ~ 155 calories (estimate)
Cost: $15.95 USD for total package of six different chocolates
Purchased from: Airport gift shop in San Juan, Costa Rica

Once again, an airport gift shop proved to be a great place to find some different local chocolates. Chocorart products, according to information I found on the web, come from an organic cacao plantation. The organic cacao farm and chocolate factory is near Playa Chiquita (just south of Puerto Viejo, on the Caribbean/east coast) in Costa Rica.

This mint chocolate was one in a package of six Chocoart flavors. I found these on the way out of Costa Rica at the end of a vacation. The consistency of these cigar-shaped chocolates was a bit different; they have just three ingredients: cacao, cane sugar, and flavoring (mint in this case). But the texture and taste grow on you.
