ChocolateBet: June 18, 2011

Chocolate of the Day:

1/4 bar
Michael Mischer Chocolates
Pistachios (bar)
Very Good - Very Good +
Weight: .75 oz. (21.25 g.) / 3 oz. (85 g.) total bar
Cost: $10.95 total bar
Purchased from: Michael Mischer Chocolates, Oakland, CA

Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Mediterranean Theme Week, part 2.  (This past week there was a brief intermission between Mediterranean Week part 1 and part 2 -- in order to have a Chocolate and Bacon Theme Week.)

And, now we return to lovely items such as green pistachio nuts, that pair well with deep milk and darker chocolates in bar or bark form. The pistachios in this Michael Mischer bar are set into a smooth base of single origin Criollo 65% dark chocolate.

Several of Michael Mischer's line of designer bars are studded with nuts -- others contain salt, toffee or nibs and other flavors. If you visit Mischer's Oakland store, you can browse a long line of these bars (see photo above).
