ChocolateBet: September 17, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

1/2 bar
Al Nassma Chocolate LLC
Arabia bar (camel milk chocolate, spices)
Good +
Weight: 35 grams (1.23 oz.)/70 grams (2.46 oz.) total bar
Calories: 184 calories (estimate) for 1/2 bar
Cost: $12.00 for 1 bar
Purchased from: Chocolate Covered, in San Francisco, CA

If the label hadn't disclosed this milk chocolate was made with camel's milk, I wouldn't have guessed.

It was good, although (like many milk chocolates I've tried) it was a bit sweet. The spices used were subtle. In addition to honey and vanilla, I thought I tasted just a little bit of coffee, cardamom and cinnamon. But, I could be wrong.

Twelve dollars sounds like a lot to spend on a few ounces of chocolate; but, it is much less expensive than flying to Dubai (part of the United Arab Emirates). Al Nassma apparently maintains their own camels adjacent to their facility that they use to make camel milk chocolate products.

What an interesting chocolate field trip this would be.
