Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Cashew Theme Week.
Today's CashMoo dark chocolate round from Chocolate Gems (Asheville, NC) was studded with chopped cashew nut pieces.
The rich, smooth dark chocolate base provided tasty chocolate flavor, and somehow managed not to extinguish the mild cashew nut flavor—a tough balancing act to pull off.
I also tried two other Chocolate Gems signature chocolates—a tall, pointed "Firecracker" chocolate with a spicy kick and fruit-flavored (strawberry I believe) pop rocks; and a Juniper Berry chocolate. The latter had an authentic, nicely balanced juniper flavor.
Chocolate Gems was/is located in an old hardware store building in downtown Asheville, NC.
Thank you to Isabel for her help in selecting chocolates.
