Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps Dark Chocolate Crunch

My co-worker Dini M. brought these chocolate snacks by my office today.

These were really good! The pretzels were thinner than normal ones. They were almost pretzel crackers, and despite the rich chocolate coating, they were still wonderfully crispy. The chocolate was good too, nice and dark. We estimated it at 50% cacao or so, and it paired with the salty pretzels very well.

Thanks Dini!


Starbucks Cacao Blended Cold Brew

My co-worker Dini M. brought me this concoction from Starbucks.

This ice-blended drink contains cold brew coffee, cacao, coconut milk, and a fruit purée of bananas, apples and dates. It was delicious! I could not drink it all because I am off of coffee for a while (it’s giving me some digestive issues), but when I start up again, this will be my drink of choice!

Thanks Dini!

Dark Chocolate Wild Berry Mountain Thins

My co-worker Brian H. brought in this big bag of yum to the office.

The bag was full of dark chocolate bark pieces, each one embedded with dried blueberries and raspberries made crunchy with a sugary rice-based shell. These reminded me of blueberry barkTHINS, except these tasted more like blueberry but they were not made with as good chocolate as the barkTHINS. For some reason, I could not taste any raspberry flavor at all, but I still liked them. I ate like five pieces, so did my co-workers.

Thanks Brian!

Moser Roth Dark Orange Almond

We ate the last Moser Roth bar brought in by my co-worker Dini M.

This bar was good but not great. Like their Sea Salt bar, it had a good chocolate flavor but the orange flavor tended to drown it out. The almond slivers were more like almond bits, so they added crunch but no real taste. Still, the bar was pretty good, and all of my co-workers had thirds!

Thanks Dini!

Moser Roth Dark Sea Salt

My co-worker Dini M. brought in more Moser Roth chocolate!

This bar was good. The cacao percentage was not listed, but most of my co-workers thought it was about 60%, and I put it at about 55%. So not as good as my favorite, their 85% cacao bar, but still pretty good. And like all of the Moser Roth bars, there was a lot of it to share, and we all had thirds.

Thanks Dini!

Dark Chocolate Roca Thins

My co-workers and I had this bag for Large Bar Friday.

This bag contained slabs of dark chocolate embedded with toffee bits…and they were delicious! The dark chocolate was quite deep and richly flavored, and the toffee was crunchy and buttery and not overly sticky. I had three or four pieces myself, and everyone had seconds, at least. This chocolate was a hit!

Moser Roth Dark 85% Cocoa

My co-worker Dini M. brought in more Moser Roth chocolate bars. I went straight for the darkest one.

This bar was fantastic! Or more accurately, these five bars were fantastic, because like their 70% cacao bar and their mint bar, this package contained five smaller bars. They had a nice, deep, not-so-sweet chocolate flavor that I love. This was my favorite Moser Roth bar so far, and with five bars, there was enough for everyone to have seconds and thirds.

Thanks Dini!
