I finally managed to find a Whole Foods that was convenient for me to visit. I must say, I'm hooked on that store now. They had beautiful flowers, and I heard my favorite music in there that I never hear anywhere else!
But onto the chocolate... I went to the chocolate section, and was overwhelmed by brands that I never heard of. Someone reccomended that I try Kilari, but they didn't have any of that. So, I picked up a small bar of Lindt 70%, and they had tiny squares of another brand that I'm blanking on. I ate the square, and enjoyed it, but I'm waiting for the right moment to try the Lindt.
That brings me to a question: How do you clense your palate before eating chocolate?
Too often I eat fast food, and I figure I need to refresh my tongue before trying chocolate that I spent good money on.
Then I decided to look at these websites that you have suggested, and I saw more chocolate and concepts that I am unfamiliar with. I'm sure the more I see it all, the better grasp I'll have of it.
But I discovered this (scroll to the bottom):
Venchi Gianduja Chocolate Spread
I was drawn in by the packaging. What is this beautiful chocolate? What does one spread it on? Fancy bread? Yellow cake? My tongue?
I'm so glad I have found this community! I'm very excited to be embarking on a new Chocolate Life!
