on a recent trip to New Orleans Louisiana, we stopped at the fresh market. i was so happy to see such a wonderful selection of products. there has been a trend lately to expand the flavor profile of chocolate. and, that makes me very happy. for years, i used to purchase the only brand of flavored chocolate i could find–Terry’s milk chocolate orange ball. it used to be packaged in a round ball with the slices shaped as an orange. they were individually wrapped and packaged in a square. i loved the flavor combination.
do you happen to remember that product? i think it is still available on amazon.com
anyway, since then, the market has greatly expanded for flavored chocolate bars. i wish i would have thought of the idea myself.
besides just breaking off a square to eat, i have used the various flavors for hot chocolate, hot fudge sauce and even for thumbprint cookies. be imaginative and try some of the options at the market.
