I’m back into chocolate again…but not just any chocolate. M&Ms are done, and so is Hershey’s, etc. I’m now having a good time with all the exotic and intriguing chocolates around.
My favorites this minute are Vosges – called Haut Chocolat. I had 2 pieces last night of the Naga Bar – curry powder, coconut flakes and deep milk chocolate. Terrific, though I would have preferred very dark chocolate.
I have 2 more rare ones stacked up – Red Fire Bar, with chipotle chillies, cinnamon and dark chocolate, and Oaxaca Bar, with pasilla chillies, guajillo (whatever that is!) and Tanzanian bittersweet chocolate. Plus a favorite I’ve had before – the Goji Bar – goji berries, pink Himalayan salt and deep milk chocolate.
I’ve been making an occasion of these wildly flavored chocolates – taking them to movies, sharing with friends, just inhaling those far out mixes of flavors.
If you’re in the same mood, you can find them at the Coffee Emporium, one on Central Parkway, one on Erie Avenue.
Yum! as well as totally not-boring!
