Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week -- a very extended week indeed.
Today I reached way back into the chocolate vault to grab two different mint chocolates from large chocolate companies -- Hershey and Ghirardelli.
Both packages contained individually wrapped single servings of chocolate. The first was a "Hershey's Sticks" Mint flavored item, advertised as having only 60 calories per stick. This stick was a bit sweet for me, but I liked the smaller, sealed serving. Not everyone wants to eat or carry around a full chocolate bar; and these individual packets also keep one's purse free of chocolate meltage on a hot day.
The second item was a Dark Chocolate with White Mint Filling square from Ghirardelli Chocolate Company (San Leandro, CA). This conveniently sized, mint-filled chocolate square was part of a larger line of individually wrapped, flavored chocolate squares that the company produces.
