World Market offers a line of very reasonably priced dark chocolate items. This pomegranate and vanilla flavored bar also seemed to have a very slight, not unpleasant coconut flavor note. Altogether, this 64% cacao bar was a great choice for Day #3 of Chocolate and Pomegranate Theme Week.

I enjoyed these dark chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds. They had just the right amount of flavor and texture for my taste. Day #2 of Chocolate and Pomegranate Theme Week also found me hunting for pomegranate and chocolate-related items for the remaining five days of this week. Fortunately, I found several items at the local Bevmo (beverage chain) and Piazza's Market (local supermarket). Yes, interesting and unique chocolates abound in large suburbs and cities this year.
