Highlights from the Chocolate Show, in NYC until 11/13/2005.
Bissinger's has just launched a line of dark chocolate covered seeds and nuts they call Naturals. The Black Sesame Crunch is one of the best things I've tasted recently. Crunchy, savory, handmade...they are high in antioxidants and protein and low in sugar and carbs. The bag disappered within two minutes at CH HQ. Available online and at some Whole Foods. $7 for a 5 oz. bag.
Chocolove has been committed to great tasting, high quality, reasonably priced dark chocolate for ten years. When some of the employees were saying how much they missed the old days they came up with a dream bar of milk chocolate with toffee and almonds. They convinced the chocolatier to whip up some samples and it quickly evolved into the new Toffee & Almonds in 33% Milk Chocolate bar. Be careful, it's highly addictive. Currently available online at Chocolove; 12 3.2 oz. bars for $20, and appearing in a store near you or from other online retailers.
