My co-worker Dini M. brought in this Polish chocolate that she bought at an Italian grocery.
This package contained eight sticks of dark chocolate, each one filled with a whipped chocolate filling flavored with espresso. The sticks were fairly sweet, and the dark chocolate was just 50% cacao, but these were still pretty good little bars. I am sucker for coffee mixed with chocolate.
My co-worker Dini M. brought in another Raley bar.
Again, this was a very good bar. Nice deep chocolatey flavor, and crushed almonds that are evenly distributed throughout the bar. And they were not kidding when they said those almonds are salty. I needed some water after two pieces!
There are more Raley bars to come!
My co-worker Dini M. brought in this chocolate bar that she found in a grocery store in Northern California.
This bar was delicious! It was quite rich tasting, more so than I expected, even for 72% cacao (which they spell “cocoa”). It was also very creamy, like Lindt manages to do with their dark chocolate. I shared it with my co-workers, but I ate four pieces since it was so yummy. And Dini brought more flavors of this brand, so expect more reviews!
My co-worker Anthony R. brought this bag of chocolate bark to a chocolate eating meeting.
These were delicious…WAY more delicious than I expected. I mean, I like bark, especially almond bark, but this was just a store brand with marshmallows and graham cracker bits. But the chocolate was very dark and deep, and the marshmallows were small and not overly sweet, and the graham crackers provided a wonderful crunch (plus, I love dark chocolate covered graham crackers). All in all, these were a fantastic combo!
p.s Happy Thanksgiving to my U.S. readers!!!!
My co-worker Nate M. gave me this box of chocolate covered almonds.
Despite being covered in milk chocolate, these almonds were really good! In fact, it turns out I had enjoyed this product before, in bar form, over 17 years ago! I guess my tastes never change.
My co-worker Anthony R. left this on my desk.
Inside was a little chocolate caramel, slightly smaller than a LifeSaver candy.
It was interesting. It was a soft, sticky caramel with chocolate notes, and as you sucked on it, there was an occasional powdery cocoa texture revealed. And for a caramel, it wasn’t overly sweet either. I liked it.
My co-worker David W. brought these back from Hawaii.
While I have had dark chocolate macadamia nuts before, they were awesome then and they are awesome now. I really liked these. There is just something about a whole roasted macadamia nut covered in chocolate that is super yummy.
