Or shall I say, "Oh my Starbucks!" Those of you who've been hanging with me here for more than a few months know about my affinity for Starbucks. Those people know how to make a seriously good cup of coffee. You probably also know about my affection for dark chocolate if you've read my bio page. It turns out those Starbucks people make some seriously good chocolate too - it's coffee-licious chocolate!
I am a bit of a chocolate aficionado. Not a chocolate snob, mind you, I'll still eat the average stuff ... in a pinch. But I stock my cocoa stash with the likes of Dagoba Dark, Green & Black, and Ghirardelli. Hey, I drive a mini-van and shop at Target - a girl's gotta have a few nice things in life.
Here is the new kid on the chocolate block, and I've got a serious crush:
Called Mocha Dark, this chocolate is big time in a small wrapper. And one bar lasts me a long time - for me, about a week - because with really good dark chocolate I take small bites and savor the flavor. The flavor here is smooth dark chocolate, followed by top notch coffee with hints of citrus. It also has a surprising texture: melt-in-your-mouth chocolate with tiny, slightly crunchy granules of Guatemala Casi Cielo coffee spread throughout. UMMMMM!
The wrapper says, "When coffee dreams, it dreams of chocolate." What else can I say, these Starbucks people really get me. I just had to let you know ... leave a rant or a rave if you try it.
