ChocolateBet: August 27, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

1 bar
PeaceWorks Inc.
Sesame and Peanuts with Chocolate bar
Good + - Very Good
Weight: 1.6 oz. (45 grams) in one bar
Calories: 230 calories in one bar
Cost: $2.99 + ~8.8% NYC sales tax = $3.25 total
Purchased from: Cibo Market, JFK Airport, New York

This gluten-free and Non-GMO, KIND Sesame and Peanuts bar (topped with diagonal chocolate stripes) looks like it was made by a group with an international design and marketing perspective. (The bar itself was made in Australia, by a company based in New York City.) Peanuts, puffed rice and sesame seeds and gave this bar some nice crunchy texture.

As mentioned previously, airports are often good places to buy local chocolates. I bought four different bars with chocolate in them at JFK airport on the way back from a short vacation trip to Manhattan/New York City earlier this month -- along with a big apple that I ate on the plane.

Someone recently asked me: "Do you have a chocolate stash at home so you don't run out of chocolates to try?" The answer is: Yes, I generally have a week's worth of new chocolates in my stockpile. And, if you have suggestions for chocolates you think I have not tried, please let me know.
