Fig Cake + Milk Chocolate

Chocolate of the Day: 

Milk Chocolate bar
Weight: .7 oz. (?? g. ) .36 lb. total wedge
Calories: 105 calories (estimate)
Cost: N/A
Purchased from: small store in San Francisco, CA

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

I bought a wedge of pressed, dried fig cake with almonds (from Spain). This dense cake became a bit softer and more lovely when heated in the microwave -- and even better with small squares of Perugina milk chocolate (owned by Nestle - Vevey, Switzerland) melting beside it.

If you like figs and you like chocolate, it's hard to go wrong with almost any combination of the two. But I did like this simple pairing. The almonds in the fig cake also added some additional crunchy texture and balanced out the slightly acidic flavors of both fig and chocolate.
