ChocolateBet: November 15, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

1 bar
Cerreta Candy Company/Cerreta's Fine Chocolates
Cerreta's Extra Dark bar - Good +
Weight: 1 oz. (28 grams)
Calories: 130 calories in 1 bar
Cost: $1.25
Purchased from: Cerreta Candy Company, in Glendale, Arizona

In addition to this Cerreta's dark chocolate (55% cacao) bar, I enjoyed a Naked Camelback -- a racy name for a small, individually-wrapped caramel and pecan patty. (Note: there was no chocolate in the Camelback.)

One of my favorite sights at Cerreta's was an homage to a Lucy & Ethel's chocolate factory fiasco (from an old episode of the "I Love Lucy" TV show).
(For those old enough to remember the show, and young enough to be able to see the details of tiny, grainy photographs, see image at right from the Cerreta's factory floor.)
