ChocolateBet: June 8, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

1 bon bon
Gateau et Ganache
La Lavande (Lavender Earl Grey Tea)
Very Good +
Weight: ~ .5 oz. (14 g.)/4 oz. (113 g.) in total box of 8 bon bons
Calories: ~ 75 calories in one bon bon
Purchased from: Piazzas, in Palo Alto, CA

I like herb and floral flavors a lot. My versions of this bon bon would likely be whole sprigs of lavender lightly coated with some dark chocolate - a bit disgusting for most people.

So, I really respect chocolatiers who are highly skilled at balancing flavors. This chocolate was very good, and nicely balanced; although the Earl Grey tea part of the flavor was subtle enough that I almost missed it. (Darn, I guess I'll have to buy some more to see if I wasn't paying close enough attention.
