There was a U.S. television show called "Gilligan's Island" back in the last century. After a 3-hour boat tour that went awry and left seven individuals stranded on an island. Over the course of three seasons, viewers got to know this group of castaways, that included two young women: Ginger and Mary Ann. And they were left to ponder which one was more attractive -- the seductive Ginger, or the wholesome Mary Ann. This cleverly named dark bar (70% cacao) from Mink Chocolates contained organic candied ginger.
Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Ginger Theme Week.
