ChocolateBet: August 6, 2011

Chocolate of the Day:

1 piece
OK + - Good
Weight: .39 oz. (11 g.) (estimate) for 1 piece (part of an assortment box)
Calories: 58 calories (estimate)
Cost: (store closing sale)
Purchased from: Andronicos, Stanford Shopping Center, Palo Alto, CA

Today's chocolate was plucked from a Neuhaus Dark, Milk and White assortment box. This "Galerie" piece had a caramel ganache with fleur de sel de Guerande (French sea salt). It was a perfect choice for Day #7 of Chocolate and Sea Salt Theme Week; and Day #3 of Salt Caramel Theme Week.

Unfortunately, when I bought this box (at a marked down price) it was during a liquidation sale; and I noticed just this morning that I had purchased this box well beyond the expiration date of 1/11/11. Ah well. The chocolates in this assortment box still looked good; however, the flavor was a bit bland and was a bit "off."
