Grab Bag Friday: Chocolate!

This summer, one of my sisters has been sending me monthly installments of coffee and chocolate from Seattle (Kevin drinks the coffee, I eat the chocolate.) Is she a good sister or what?

Some of the flavors have been *so* interesting, I had to share them here. Check it out:

First came the Cowgirl Chocolates.
Spicy Dark Lime Tequila, and Spicy Milk Chocolate Mint. And they aren't joking when they say "spicy." Whew!

Then came a couple installments of 3400 Phinney Bars.

Coconut Curry (yowza!)

Chai (yummy with tea or coffee)

Bread & Chocolate (this dark chocolate bar actually has tiny toasted pieces of salted french bread in it...deeelicious)

And I'm usually more of a dark chocolate than milk chocolate kind of girl, and hazelnut is not my favorite flavoring, but the Hazelnut Crunch is ridiculously good. It's like the hazelnut bits have been dipped in toffee and toasted to perfection. Mmmm.

Now don't you wish your sister lived in Seattle, too?

A note on Theo chocolates for your readers: They are the first organic and Fair Trade chocolate factory in the U.S., and on the whole an uber-ethical and creative group! Not only can you feel good about the fact that their chocolate is amazingly tasty, but you can feel good about supporting a company that is so socially and environmentally aware! Enjoy!
