This BingGo Benjamint Crunch bar from Divvies (South Salem, NY) was quite good. The bits of organic peppermint crunch candy added a nice mint sparkle to this chocolate bar.

The bar was also memorable for what it carefully left out. Because it was labeled "no nuts, no dairy" (made in a dedicated facility that is peanut-free, tree nut-free, milk-free and egg-free), I could split this with my daughter (who is allergic to most nuts).

To divvy up something is to divide or share an item. It is not always easy to share foods you really like; and to illustrate this point, Divvies divided this bar into two unequal parts (see image above). It may be hard to read, but the much larger part is labeled "Mine," and the much smaller part is labeled "Yours." Guess which part my daughter received? Ah well, she understands my commitment to chocolate.
