Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Chili Theme Week.
The Pick Me! Pepper bar from Rescue Chocolate (made by Tumbador Chocolate in Brooklyn, NY) was made with flavorful and creamy 66% Organic and Fairly Traded (vegan) dark chocolate, and contained pasilla and mulato chili pepper, spices and fleur de sel.
However, no need to be afraid of the heat, as the savory and spicy notes were well balanced, and the slightly salty flavor seemed just right.
The "Pick Me!" in the title refers to dogs who would be happy to be adopted, sponsored or rescued. 100% of the net proceeds from this line of Rescue Chocolate bars go to animal rescue groups.
Fittingly, I spent today leading a Chocolate Walk in the "Dogpatch" neighborhood of San Francisco, an area with several chocolatiers (as well as craft breweries, wine bars, and great little cafes). Dog images were everywhere (including dog paintings/drawings at Recchiuti's Little Nib and theLab Cafe). It was a beautiful day, and thank you to the great group who participated.
