Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Halloween wEEKs, where we're transitioning back to the dark side.

Today's Galactic Gelato bar from TCHO (Berkeley, CA) came with the following description: "Mint astronaut gelato floating in spacy dark chocolate."

One could design a Halloween pageant around that theme. Or, one could just sit back and enjoy this dark chocolate mint bar, made with organic fair trade cocoa beans.

The Galactic Gelato bar was made in partnership with an artisan gelato maker—Gelateria Naia (San Francisco, CA). Influenced by high-end chocolate and gelato, the makers of this dark bar folded in bits of freeze-dried astronaut ice cream, yielding cosmic sparkles of creamy mint flavor.

Spooky. I'd almost forgotten what dark chocolate tasted like this month. Traditional Halloween chocolate bars aren't very high in cacao content. It was good to experience authentic dark flavor again. Certified organic and fair trade cacao beans were the first ingredient listed. Hurray.
