Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and California Dreaming Theme Week.
Today's small box of 38% Chocolate By Numbers Milk Chocolate was from The San Francisco Chocolate Factory (San Francisco, CA).
The company's "Chocolate by Numbers," themed boxes and tins of button- or disc-shaped round chocolate pieces are available in different percentages of cacao solids: 31%, 38%, 55%, 72%, etc.
Round, thin discs offer several benefits: they feel good on the tongue and offer more immediate/better access to creamy texture and chocolate flavors than a thick bar. The pieces (16 in this small box) also can be easily shared by a group of tasters.
These small rounds could be used for a side-by-side chocolate % comparison tasting, for those wanting to know more about cacao. Or they could be used as pairing chocolates with different foods and beverages.
The San Francisco Chocolate Factory also has a wholesale business and is involved in private/custom labeling and brand partnerships.
