Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Poetry Theme Week. The poem in this case was enveloping an Almonds and Sea Salt dark chocolate (55% Cocoa Content) bar by Chocolove (Boulder, CA). An uneven scattering of dry roasted almonds provided some crunch, texture and taste, and there were occasional hints of sea salt. Neither of these two flavor additions were too overpowering, letting the dark semisweet chocolate flavor shine in this bar.

A portion of the poem included on the inside of the Chocolove bar wrapper appears below:

A Magic Moment I Remember

A magic moment I remember:
I raised my eyes and you were there,
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare
I pray to mute despair and anguish,
To vain the pursuits world esteems,
Long did I hear your soothing accents,
Long did your features haunt my dreams...

translated from - Alexander Pushkin
