ChocolateBet: November 22, 2011

Chocolate of the Day:

1.) Norcal Gourmet LLC (see also Truffili di Pelligrini)
Dark Chocolate Mousse Truffles - with Himalayan Sea Salt
1 piece
Weight: .35 oz. (10 g.)/ 1.76 oz. (50 g.) total package of 5 pieces
Calories: 60 calories
Cost: $ (lost info)
Purchased from: Piazza's Fine Foods, in Palo Alto, CA

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Bacon Theme Week.

These Dark Chocolate Mousse Truffles were sprinkled with pink Himalayan sea salt. They had a smooth chocolate filling with a thin wafer layer at the base of the truffle. I ate around the wafer layer (to avoid possible wheat ingredients), and replaced with a layer of bacon lollipop. Here's where the bacon comes in today...

2.) Das Foods LLC
Maple Bacon Lollipop(s)
2 lollipops
Weight: .6 oz. (16 g.) for two
Calories: 50 calories
Purchased from: Ferry Building, San Francisco, CA

These maple-based lollipops, from Das Foods LLC, had tiny, visible flecks of bacon embedded in them, and were not bad -- a refreshing change from fruit flavored 'pops -- and much more appealing than the suckers with the (gummy and real) bugs/worms in them.

3.) Accoutrements
"Bacon" Breakfast Floss
1 foot piece
Weight: N/A
Calories: N/A
Purchased from: Fremont Diner, Sonoma, CA

There was no real bacon taste that I could detect when I used this Bacon floss, but the 3-piece Breakfast Floss set (Waffles, Bacon, and Coffee) was a clever offering.
