Review: I am not a huge fan of dark chocolate. The aftertaste is what turns me away. However, it seems that every winter, my body requires more sugar than usual. So, one night around midnight or 1AM, while rooting around in my disgusting refrigerator, I came across these chocolate bars that my roommate had bought. Desperate to regulate my blood sugar, I swiped one and promptly scarfed it down. I bought these today as a replacement.
That’s right, I bought dark chocolate because I am a thief.
It seems I have stopped being finicky and learned to love the dark chocolate because I have already eaten one whole chocolate bar throughout the course of my work day today. Trader Joe’s dark chocolate (from Belgium) doesn’t have the bitter bite that most dark chocolate does. And the aftertaste is minimal and easily washed away with a few drinks of water or coffee. Eating these chocolate bars with a cup of joe actually seems to enhance the flavor of the coffee.
The French also seem to think that dark chocolate is good for you.
Paris, here I come!
