ChocolateBet: July 24, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

1 bar
Bryne and Carlson (Portsmouth, NH)
Mendiant Bar - 68% cacao
Very Good +
Weight: 4.75 oz. (134.5 grams) in 1 bar
Calories: 712 calories (estimate) in 1 bar
Cost: $ (?) Alas, receipt didn't break out individual items and prices
Purchased from: Fog City News, in San Francisco, CA

This lovely-to-look-at bar is the result of starting with a French (dark) chocolate base and hand-decorating the bars with "dried fruits, nuts, candied violets and mint leaves."

The taste of some of more delicate items got lost a bit in the dark chocolate. In this case, I was expecting to taste the mint and not the candied violets, but the reverse was true (which was great). The pieces of candied citrus peel and dried cranberry worked well in this mix as well.

This bar was my breakfast and lunch today.
