q &bull bel: dark chocolate crispie rice wafer bar

post one of six.

the dark chocolate wafer bar is wonderfully crispy and it is coated in belgian dark chocolate. there are two bars to a pack and it is just impossible to save one for later. this is a perfect dark, crispy, flaky bar.

the founder created the chocolate bar company, promoting no chemicals and artificial ingredients, for his children. the founder is also a romantic and named it after his wife isabel.

there is no doubt that the quality is top notch and you can taste the love put into this product.

american heritage chocolate: chocolate stick

you are an observer at the american philosophical society and become startled by a touch to the shoulder. ben franklin whispers in your ear... who knew the man could be so naughty? you excuse his behavior... after all, he worked hard on getting rid of the stamp act (the british tried to solve their national debt by taxing the u.s. on all printed matter).

ben kindly invites you for a constitutional after the meeting - - - he somehow is too intriguing to deny. as you stroll the cobbled streets, he reaches into his pockets and offers a chocolate stick. you raise one eyebrow, nod to him, and then gently glide it into your mouth. aromas of cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, pepper, and orange mystify you. this is the chocolate of colonial america. he winks and states, "you know, i managed to secure six pounds of chocolate for every officer for the french and indian war". this is a man after your own heart. you fall in love.
