ChocolateBet: August 19, 2009

Chocolate(s) of the Day:

2 small sample squares
La Maison du Chocolat
1.) Dark chocolate square - Very Good +
2.) Milk chocolate square - 37% cacao - Very Good + - Yum
Weight: 1 oz. (28.3 grams) (estimate) for two squares
Calories: 150 calories (estimate) for two squares
Cost: $0 (free samples)
Purchased from: n/a - La Maison du Chocolat, in New York City, New York

Thank you to La Maison du Chocolat (at 30 Rockefeller Center) for handing out these samples when we were visiting on a recent vacation trip. The dark chocolate square had some complex and interesting flavors running through it. And my favorite of the two, the milk chocolate square, had a very nice caramel-butterscotch taste.

And, for an interesting contrast...

Today I also celebrated summer by having an ice cream sundae at Baskin Robbins: banana nut and cherry ice cream(s) with hot fudge topping, nuts and a cherry on top. It was delicious. Thank you to Elise for joining me, and for helping me compensate for this sugary treat afterward by giving me fresh cherry tomatoes and green beans to taste from the garden. I really don't want summer to end.
