Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Nibs Theme Week.

This dark chocolate bar with nibs*, from pastry chef Jewel Zimmer, was certainly chocolate that I could enjoy "everyday." The dark chocolate (66% cacao, mixed origins) had a smooth, simmering chocolatey taste -- think hot cocoa and brownies. It was very pleasant, without being boring.

*Nibs are roasted cacao beans ground up into pieces, one of the first steps of the chocolate-making process. They are typically unsweetened, and crunchy, almost nut-like in texture.
