Dark Chocolate

What's not to love you ask? Well, when I was just a little thing (which will take us quite a ways back) I wondered why in the world adults would eat the slightly-bitter so-called chocolate also know as "dark"...hard to believe isn't it?

It would seem that my taste buds finally caught up with the fact that the dark stuff is definitely a step above the rest. In fact, I would go so far as to say that the regular run-of-the-mill variety leaves me with an almost chalky taste in my mouth.

I recently volunteered some hours at a food bank. On their worker's table (from which you may choose an item after working at least the allotted 2 hours) I spied a box of Green & Black's organic chocolate. I think it's safe to say that I almost tripped trying to get to the box fast enough (only a slight exaggeration).

It turned out to be a box of 10 bars of baking chocolate..which retails for approximately $60 on Amazon. I must say, I'm quite the fan now.

But maybe that was part of their plan all along? Hmm..something to think about.
