ChocolateBet: October 21, 2010

Chocolate(s) of the Day:

1.) 1/5 bar - Kras - 88% Ghana Cacao Dark Bar
Good + - Very Good
Weight: .48 oz. (14 g.) / 2.4 oz. (70 g.) total bar
Calories: 69 calories (estimate)
Cost: $ Not applicable

Thank you to Bill for sharing chocolate brought back from a recent trip to Croatia. Given its high (88 percent) cacao content, this bar was very smooth tasting (not bitter) and had a nutty flavor.

And now, with the second chocolate of the day, we move into "Chocolate and Halloween/Day of the Dead Theme Week."

2.) 1 small package - Simply Sinful Candy - Toffee - with Dark Chocolate and Almonds
Very Good
Weight: .85 oz. (24 g.) (estimate) in sample
Calories: 128 calories (estimate)
Cost: $ N/A - samples were being handed out at festival
Purchased from: Simply Sinful Candy booth, at the Waterfront Festival - Art, Wine and Chocolate; Suisun Bay, CA

Earlier this month, I attended the Waterfront Festival in Suisun Bay, CA. Toffee chef Patsy Anderson (pictured right) and associates, from local company Simply Sinful Candy, were handing out samples of their toffee made from local ingredients. (Their sugar, for example, comes from the C and H Sugar Factory nearby.)

Their Simply Sinful (devil) logo inspired me to hold off on eating this toffee until today -- Day #1 of Chocolate and Halloween/Day of the Dead Theme Week. Halloween is, after all, the one acceptable holiday for devils. Simply Sinful's Toffee also comes in pecan and other flavors.
