What to do with Chocolate on a Hot Day?

Okay, it's 102 degrees out in southern California and I'm melting. So what do you do with a chunky bar of dark chocolate? I like to stick it in the fridge just long enough to get firm...or if I really want it crunchy hard it'll go in the freezer for a bit.I'd skip the drinking hot tea with it, though. And I actually find that hard to do without. So what could be a better substitute? How about Thai iced tea or iced coffee?Course those drinks are a bit on the sweet side for my taste, but they're…See More

"So true...my nephews bring back pillowcases full of chocolate candies and especially the Reese's...kind of makes me cringe, though, with all the added sugar."

Remember when

This morning I was watching a Scooby Doo cartoon with my 7-year old nephew and a Reese's Pieces commercial came on during the show. Which immediately brought back nostalgic memories of the first Reese's commercial I saw around his age...Does anybody remember the 1970s Reese's Peanut Butter Cup collision commercial? Yes, I know I'm dating myself...when that campaign came out sales skyrocketed 300%!"Hey, you got peanut butter on my chocolate!""You got chocolate in my peanut butter!"Two great…See More

Most memorable chocolate experience:
Every year for the past 12 years, I celebrate my birthday for an entire month with friends and family having tea/coffee with chocolate at my favorite Asian and Mediterranean restaurants. In 2005 I started an online tea and chocolate birthday party and now friends from around the world send me boxes of chocolates by special delivery to my home.

It's become a tradition now that when folks aren't sure what to get for my birthday, they always know that dark chocolate is my gift of choice.
My favorite chocolate is:
Xocai healthy dark chocolate squares

Most of the women will have to eat two bars of "super-strength chocolate specially formulated by… Continue

Posted on July 28, 2009 at 1:30pm 1 Comment

Here's an article from Cornell University dated 12-19 -2003:



ITHACA, N.Y. -- There is a new reason to enjoy hot cocoa on a cold winter's night in front of a cozy fire. Consider it a health drink.



Beyond the froth, cocoa teems with antioxidants that prevent cancer, Cornell University food scientists say. Comparing the chemical anti-cancer activity in beverages known to contain antioxidants, they have found that cocoa has nearly twice the antioxidants of red wine and up to… Continue

Hi there, MP4C! Feel free to email me and we can discuss the difference between the antioxidants in raw cacao and how much is lost by the processing that gets it into bar form.

With the Cold-pressed technology, we are making block dark chocolate without cooking the raw cacao. Very exciting and major health testimonials!
