So this has become my *favorite* saying lately–True Story!!! Because, honestly, although we all know I’m on my quest to get *(even more) Slim & Trim there’s no way I’m ever going to get the point I give up chocolate! So when any company or any person or any *anything* for that matter asks me the question, “Would you like us to send you some chocolate?” The answer is a resounding Y E S !!!!
Recently I got the chance to try out two unique and exquisite looking chocolate bars from Chuao Chocolatier. When I posted an Instagram pic to Facebook it ensued a whole lot of “likes” and discussions of working for chocolate–haha! Also one of my friends mentioned that she’d tried their spicy maya and her hubby liked it but she had to get used to it first since it was such a different concept.
I’m not a spicy person–I’ve never understood the appeal of spicy food, to me it’s just hot and makes my mouth feel like it’s on fire–not tasty!! However I’m willing to try *just* about anything once (as my gagging down escargot…once…proved) so I decided to give the spicy maya bar a try!
I was pleased that it wasn’t nearly as hot as I thought it might be. The dark chocolate hits your taste buds first..yummmmm….then you get a nice little kick in the mouth in the form of a spicy aftertaste. The best thing I can liken it too is eating a gourmet dark chocolate covered hot tamale candy! What surprised me the most was that the kiddos–especially Tyler–*loved* it and they quickly polished off the rest of the bar when I offered them “a taste”. Haha!
I was *most* excited about trying out the Rocky Road bar! Whenever I see Rocky Road I instantly equate it with ice cream and it makes me super nostalgic to when my mom and I used to order it in Farson, Wyoming (if you’re ever driving up to Yellowstone National Park be *sure* to stop in Farson and get a cone/cup of ice cream!!!)
So anyways I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into my oh-so-sweet bar of memories! When I opened it up the first thing I noticed was the back of the bar–check it out! It was so funny to me to see all the goodies just “hanging out” Haha! The bar was absolutely delicious but I have to say that I think I would have liked it better if the marshmallows and almonds would have been chopped up and spread throughout the bar so that it wasn’t like I was just getting a bit of only marshmallow or only almond ever now and then. Since the ice cream has the “chunks” in it I can see how it feels more “legit” that way, but for some reason it just didn’t click with me as well!
Both bars were definitely a lot of fun and much more grown up and exciting than your checkout line variety! If you haven’t tried Chuao Chocolatier you will definitely have to!
