I have an insatiable sweet tooth. I always have. As a kid, I would eat candy until I literally would get sick (which still happens, but thankfully with less frequency). I swear that if I didn’t also love to run and work out, I would be severely unhealthy.
Every day at BB HQ is an exercise in self control because we have a seemingly unending supply of delicious treats — and whether it’s fortunate or unfortunate, I’ve recently found my new obsession. Chuao Chocolate, an artisan chocolatier specializing in gourmet chocolates with unusual flavor combinations, sampled with us this past month meaning that we got to test the product for ourselves. Yum. I adore Firecracker, a dark chocolate filled with chipotle, salt, and popping candy. Spicy Maya, a dark chocolate infused with pasilla chile and cayenne pepper, is also incredibly tasty. But it was love at first taste when I tried Potato Chips, which is milk chocolate filled with kettle-cooked, lightly salted potato chips. What could be better? I’m stumped.
What are your favorite chocolate combinations? I hear bacon is pretty good. Give me your suggestions in comments!
