ChocolateBet: November 16, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

2 (mini) bags
Very Good
Weight: 1.2 oz. (34 g.) in 2 small bags (estimate)
Calories: 174 calories (estimate)
Cost: $(lost info for large Halloween candy assortment bag)
Purchased from: Walgreens, in Palo Alto, CA

It was time to finish the bowl of Halloween fun-sized bars and bits the goblins didn't get a few weeks ago. First on my list, a few miniature packages of Nestle Goobers*, made from roasted peanuts covered in milk chocolate. (I found a few tiny Goobers that I'm assuming don't have microscopic peanuts in them. See scanned image of Goobers with angelic back lighting.)

As I've written before, I like small serving sizes. I cringe when I have to throw away chocolate leftovers. Cleaning up after Halloween is always a pleasure. Sure, I'll pay for this, with a chocolate candy hangover tomorrow, but it's just once a year. I'll go back to organic chocolate with agave syrup soon. Years from now kids that grew up with these organic chocolates may have nostalgia cravings for them, like I occasionally have for the cleverly-marketed candies, cereals and chocolate lovelies from the 1960s.

*Goobers = a Southern slang term for peanuts
