In 2006, my daughter bet I couldn't eat a different chocolate each day for a year. I enjoyed that year so much that, after 15+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 5,600+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Mango Theme Week.
Today's "Inventive" Milk Chocolate Bar with Popping Candy was from Amuse Mints, a division of Nassau Candy (Hicksville, NY).
Aroma and flavor notes for this bar included sweet milk chocolate (cocoa, fudge, ganache). Smooth chocolate was punctuated with snaps and amusing crackles from embedded popping candy.
I paired this sparkling chocolate bar with slices of delicious fresh, sweet Keitt Mango.
