Several months back I spotted a Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA) tasting pack of seven different bars -- all made with a 70% cacao dark chocolate base, with added flavors.

Today's Almond Ginger bar, from Trader Joe's "Takes Flight" dark chocolate tasting collection, sparkled with bits of crystallized ginger. Tiny flecks of almond added some crunchy texture; and a bit of salt helped round out and balance the sweetness.

Today was the last day of Chocolate and Ginger Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Almond Week.
