My New Great Chocolate Love

I have been transfixed on the new commercials from Starbucks about their new line of chocolates (they teamed up with Hershey to create them). So, when I was at the grocery store the other day, I picked up a box of their tasting squares. It is filled with small squares of chocolate in three flavors, Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and Mocha Dark Chocolate. I had a feeling I would like the Mocha Dark Chocolate, but I had no idea just how MUCH I would like the Mocha Dark Chocolate. It’s FABULOUS!!! For anyone who likes to munch on chocolate covered coffee beans… or just thinks chocolate and coffee are a great combination – this is the ultimate treat for you!!! There is a little invitation on the box that says: “The cacao pod and coffee bean come from distant lands and they have the power to take you away. Care to join us in a little excursion?” To that, I give a great big “YES!” The tiny bits of coffee beans found inside are just big enough to be flavorful, but not overpowering…it’s a pleasant sort of little crunch. It was hard for me to slowly eat the little squares and really savor the taste because all I wanted to do was shove them into my mouth all at once and enjoy the lovely combination of coffee and chocolate. I just had to pass on the info on this delicious new treat from Starbucks. I can’t wait to get my hands on more. (The Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate were good too, but I was blown away by the Mocha Dark Chocolate). Pick up a bar (or two), you won’t regret it!
