Ghirardelli 72% Dark Chocolate

I went back to that local specialty shop for another bar of the Ghiradelli dark chololate that I mentioned the other day. It is called "Ghirardelli Twilight Delight 72% Cacao." Yes, that's how they spelled it - see for yourself:

They are referring to Theobroma cacao, the cacao tree, a tropical tree native to Central America and South America, the beans of which are used to make cocao power and chocolate.

Blog Stuff

I'm in one of my typical blogging postures - parked outside a Starbucks, with a fresh Peet's coffee. Peet's doesn't offer wireless but I can get it here in the Starbucks parking lot. It has been a busy time at the pesky day job, and the cold is still going on, both of which have been keeping me from blogging much here, and I'm looking for people interested in sharing this blog. Let me know if you love coffee, tea, dark chocolate and are intereted.

Meanwhile I tried a special Ghiradelli dark chocolate the other day -- that I can't find on their website! I'm pretty sure it was a 72% cocoa bar, that I got at a local specialty shop. It was very, very good.

So, darn it, I'm ging to have to go back to the same place and buy another bar to taste so I can write about it here! The trouble I go to!

Dark Chocolate

I have neglected to mention dark chocolate. I didn't put it in the blog description, "coffee, coffee shops, wireless..." or the first post or any post since the first post.

This is a regrettable, unfortunate omission. I realize the pain that I have caused to my readers, their families and friends, to the general public and most regrettably, to my proud country The United State of America.

I can only offer my deepest, most heartfelt apologies and promise that In the future I will strive to do better. I ask for your forgiveness and understanding. I am working with a minister, a rabbi and a priest. The minister, the rabbi and the priest walked into a bar. The minister took the first sip, and said... Oh, wait, sorry. I can only say that with time and understanding I hope to overcome this episode and become a better man.

But what do YOU think about dark chocolate? What's the best? Scharffen Berger? Donnelly Chocolates? Do you buy it at Trader Joes?
