Compartés California Dreaming

I found this bar at a high end grocery in Pike Market in Seattle and fell in love with the cover immediately.

I realized that this brand Compartés was my arch-enemy, after the whole dreaded dark-white chocolate bait & switch from six months ago, but that cover made me buy it. Besides, how bad could a dark chocolate and brownie bar be? And guess what? It was pretty good. Not great. But a decent dark chocolate with little chunks of brownie. It reminded me of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream, which I have also been eating lately. Still, I’d rather eat the ice cream, and I’d certainly rather give B&J my money.

I never forget, Compartés. And about white chocolate, I never forgive.

These Are The Chocolates You Are Looking For

My co-worker Dini M. found more Star Wars chocolate at Disneyland this week.

These were really yummy, for milk chocolate. They had soft centers and rice krispies inside, and I really liked them. Plus, each one was stamped with the likeness of BB-8.

I have also had Disney’s two dark chocolate Star Wars candies, the Sea Salt and the Caramel, also both gifts from Dini. These chocolates were amazing, and I think Disney is really upping their chocolate game lately.

Thanks Dini!

Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie Pint Slices

Hot on the heels of my discovery of Baskin Robbins Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream in my grocer’s freezer, I found these amazing treats.

Now if you want to find a way to make me even fatter than I am now, just find some food I like and make it easier and faster for me to eat it. I think that it what Ben & Jerry did here. They took my favorite flavor of their ice cream, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, and wrapped it in a dark chocolate coating, making it trivial for me to remove from the freezer and stuff in my mouth. Who needs scoops, spoons and bowls anymore?! BRING IT ON!

Joe Chocolates Honey Almond Dark Chocolate

I found this bag of chocolate coffee goodies in a fancy grocery store in Pike Market.

This was really good! Very deep chocolate flavor paired with a strong coffee flavor, and lots of honey roasted almonds for crunch. We ate it all in one sitting. According to the back, one bag equals the same caffeine as two cups of coffee, so Robert and I each got one cup’s worth!

Axe Dark Temptation

Last year I bought this Axe body spray because it smelled like chocolate.

I know, I know…Axe is marketed to teenagers, but this is chocolate we are talking about. I never let the recommended age or gender statements deter me from anything chocolate oriented. And this spray smells pretty good! It is a little sweet smelling when it first goes on, but then it dries down to a warm, musky scent. I like it better than Yacht Man Chocolate and about the same as Demeter Dark Chocolate (although for different reasons).

Last week, I saw the body wash at my grocery store, and I immediately got it to try.

It’s the same scent, a little lighter and maybe less sweet. I used both this morning, and they pair well, although combined they may be a little too strong. Luckily for other people, I am not going out for a while, so I hope it calms down a bit.

Baskin Robbins Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream

I found my favorite Baskin Robbins ice cream flavor at my local grocery store!

I loved the description on the back label. “Take everything you love about chocolate and multiply it by chocolate”.

I am not sure if this is the deepest chocolate flavored ice cream I have ever tasted, but it must be pretty close, and it is so darkly colored that it is almost black. I love this ice cream, and it was all I could do to not eat it all in one sitting. I managed to split it over two nights, and I am afraid I am going to run back to the store for more! Yes, it is that good.
