ChocolateBet: January 23, 2010

Chocolate(s) of the Day:

1.) Michel Cluizel - Bread - Good +
Weight: .6 oz. (17 g.) in 1 "loaf" or piece (estimate)
Calories: 90 calories (estimate)
Cost: $1.50
Purchased from: Miette Bakery, Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA

Very cute little baguette shape. If I'd had a chocolate fromage,
and chocolate sardines (which Michel Cluizel does make),
I would have had a complete picnic.

2.) Trader Joe's "Chocolate Palette" Single Origin Dark Chocolate Bars
Flavors include: Papua New Guinea (70%), Dominican Republic (70%), others
Very Good - Very Good +
Weight: 2.5 oz. (71 g.) (estimate) worth of several tastes
Calories: 375 calories for tastes of different bars
Cost: $ N/A
Purchased from: Trader Joe's by Lisa

Thank you very much to Lisa and Rolf for arranging a single origin bar tasting. Sampling different chocolates side by side really highlights differences and unique qualities much more effectively than sequential tasting over a period of days.
