Go on- Treat Yourself!
Two New Chocolate Addictions
I picked up a bar of the British-made Montezuma's Organic, Geranium & Orange Dark Chocolate a couple of weeks ago when I was visiting Avoca at Powerscourt in Ireland. The delightful, mild, perfumed overtones that hit you when you open up the box are even more subtle when you bite into and taste this gorgeous, slightly floral, dark chocolate bar. The emphasis is definitely more flower power than citrus fruit and none of the flavours are overpowering. Oh yumminess of all yummy. It doesn't last long. You had better buy a few. Save up your pocket money first, though, it's Euro 3.80 per bar. But heh - it's a small price to pay for such exquisite deliciousness.
The other day I was on Polk street and decided to drop-in on one of my favourite Food stores, Cheese Plus, formerly known (to me) as Leonards. This store is under new management and striking changes have been implemented. Gone is the mix-mash of International oddities I was kind of fond of. In there place are well presented luxurious food items I am sure I will get equally attached to. They even sell great-looking fresh sandwiches which I'll have to check out one lunchtime.
The chocolate selection caught my eye. None more than the Vosges Black Pearl Bar, flavoured with ginger, wasabi and black sesame seed. Ginger is the dominant flavour, the wasabi is less detectable and the sesame seeds give it the bar a lovely, slightly crunchy texture. A very nice, spicy bar for $5.99.
