I'm not a big meat eater, but I was so excited to get my Luca Chocolate bacon box that I ordered...OK, those who find this disgusting need read no further, and to others, please continue... that I forgot to photograph and weigh the chocolate dipped bacon pieces before eating them for brunch this morning. These crispy bacon pieces, covered in just the right amount of dark chocolate, were relatively small and light (2-3 inches long). I enjoyed being able to really taste the bacon. Tomorrow, I'll try the bacon caramels.

Luca Chocolate is based in Ramseur, North Carolina, and is one of many small businesses that Foodzie brings together on their site, for our eating pleasure. (Luca is the name of a lovely brown horse.)

Chocolate of the Day:

Go Max Go Foods, LLC
Twilight (candy bar)
Good +
Weight: 2.1 oz. (60 g.) in 1 bar
Calories: 250 calories in 1 bar
Cost: $1.99 (sale)
Purchased from: Piazza's Fine Foods, in Palo Alto, CA

I ate this vegan, dairy-free Twilight bar with a handful of almonds. While I think this bar might have been a little less sweet than many bars (a good thing), at more than 2 oz., some raw nuts and water helped to balance out the sugary taste.

Note: This is a delayed post due to an all-day power outage in my neighborhood yesterday.
