Chocolove Chilies & Cherries in Dark Chocolate
I strongly believe that the combination of spicy and sweet is one of the best flavor combos out there, and it seems like chocolate tends to be the best sweet to pair with spicy. On top of that, now that we know that dark chocolate (in moderation) can be good for you, it’s possible to get the spicy and the sweet without the guilt or fear. If you like spicy food and are looking for a bar with a kick, Chocolove’s Chilies & Cherries in Dark Chocolate is for you.
This bar is big (6″ x 3″) and good. Seriously good. I could taste the chili almost immediately after chewing on a square. The ancho and chipotle chilies add a nice heat without melting your mouth and the pieces of dried cherries add a nice chewy texture to a smooth, rich bar. Even though chipotle has a medium rating on the Scoville scale, the chocolate bar isn’t aggressively spicy at all and the heat that I did taste was nicely tempered by the chocolate.
As you can tell in the picture above, the bar comes in mail-inspired wrapping with a love poem. I actually didn’t read my love poem because I never read messages that come with my food but it’s still a nifty packaging accent.
