Thank you to the staff at Heath Ceramics (Sausalito, CA) for recommending this ZZang! Original bar from Zingerman's (Ann Arbor, MI). Tucked away near the cash register in Heath's gift store (a shop that carried ceramic dishes and tiles), this high-end candy bar looked intriguing.

The first bite of this bar was enough to detect higher quality ingredients than those in many mass-marketed, popular candy bars. The ZZang! bar was stuffed with satisfying layers of "butter roasted peanuts, caramel and peanut butter honey nougat" -- and dipped in dark chocolate. Hard to go wrong with this winning combination of flavors and textures.

Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week.
