ChocolateBet: September 3, 2012

Chocolate of the Day:

Olive and Sinclair
Bourbon Nib Brittle
Good + - Very Good
Weight: 2.2 oz. (62 g.) serving / 5 oz. (141.5 g.) total box
Calories: 300 calories (estimate)
Cost: $16.00 total box
Purchased from: The Chocolate Garage, Palo Alto, CA

Inside this attractively designed box was a package of Bourbon Nib Brittle from Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Co. (Nashville, TN). The delicious, thin shards of brown sugar and butter brittle were coated with dark chocolate on one side, and the brittle was full of crunchy cacao nibs.

How strong the Bourbon flavor was seemed to be batch-dependent. This batch was a bit lighter on the whiskey; both batches/boxes I sampled from were good.

Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Nib Theme Week.
