"Earthquake" (dark chocolate, crisped rice, peanut butter)
Good + - Very Good
Weight: ~1.2 oz. (33.96 g.) for 2 pieces
Calories: ~ 180 calories (estimate)
Cost: $3.33 for total package of ~ 8 pieces
Purchased from: De Brito's Chocolate Factory, in Hollister, CA

Today, a friend and I visited De Brito's Chocolate Factory as part of a beautiful Spring Saturday drive-and-hike day. Green hills, wildflowers, and (of course) stops for chocolate...Hollister, CA, is in earthquake country, south of San Jose, CA, with a major fault closeby - thus (I'm guessing) the name for the "Earthquake" chocolates. Each piece was decorated with a jagged white "fault" line on top. In additions to chocolates, De Brito's offers more than 30 different flavors of caramel apples. Some of these apples probably weigh more than 2 pounds by the time they're rolled in a variety of ingredients. I'll have to come back at a later time to try one of these.
