fresh & easy: belgian chocolate bar 72% cocoa with cocoa nibs


fresh & easy grocery just opened up a new store on hollywood boulevard. since they are a stones throw away, i had to check out their chocolate supply. i headed down the hill and found that the police had the store cordoned off because of oscar preparations. i was not to be deterred... i manoeuvered the car past traffic enforcement, used my parking karma, climbed the barricades, and went shopping!

to my surprise, i found a belgian chocolate bar (72% cocoa) with cocoa nibs. the chocolate is not superior but the texture is great. the crushed cocoa nibs definitely worked me over. this bar is perfect if you do not want to splurge and still want to maintain some form of dignity. take this bar to the movies.

Hmm, that definitely would have been my first choice. The Fresh & Easy I stopped in yesterday in Glassel Park/Eagle Rock had a dark bar with Ginger. I haven't tried it yet. I also picked up the milk chocolate bar. At less than $2 for organic, I thought it was worth a try.

the ginger bar is not bad - i am recalling huge chunks of ginger with okay chocolate... the milk chocolate is not the best - - - it is more or less of the hershey variety (this is if you are talking about the small bar wrapped in striped brown plastic - - - it is stocked next to the major brand bars and it costs under 50 cents).. I have yet to post those reviews.

thank you so much for the comments.

kisses.
