Elite Bittersweet Chocolate

I found this bar on the kosher aisle of my local grocery store.


This bar was good, but it was bit too sweet for my tastes. I was surprised that it was as sweet as it was for a 40% cacao bar. I was also surprised there was a cow on the cover, because there was no milk in this bar. And I while I have had Israeli chocolate before, the last ones I had were 20 years ago! It was high time for another!


Israeli chocolate

A friend of Larry’s took a trip to Israel at the end of 1994, and he brought back two chocolate bars. The first one I didn’t care for. It was very generic dark chocolate, with a bland flavor profile.

The second one was much better. It was a little dry, but much more tasty than the first one.

This ends the bars from 1994. I was only adding a dozen or so labels a year at first, but this would accelerate in the coming years, especially when I started having “chocolate eating meetings” at work.
