Crackin' Good

Popping chocolate

Chuao's Firecracker chocolate bar with chipotle, salt, and "popping candy" (think Pop Rocks) caused quite a tizzy around the office this afternoon. Angela sent it to me for my birthday, so everyone who got some is lucky I was feeling generous.

There's not much spice to the chipotle and not much saltiness to the salt in this bar, but that's good. The popping candies are doing enough; your tongue doesn't need anymore distractions.

All who tasted it seemed intrigued enough to consider eating it again or buying it for a friend, so I call this novel bar a keeper -- and I know first-hand that it makes a great gift!

I love the Chuao chocolate line and the popping choc is one of my two favorites. The other is the red-packaged one with multiple chiles. A must-not miss, Jennie!
NA from MHS (what a pleasant surprise to find such a cool foodie site from an old classmate!) Will continue to follow with great interest :-)

Thanks for the comment. I'll keep an eye out for the chile variety.

Now you'll have me thinking about the initials "NA" for a while, assuming those are indeed your actual initials. ;)

It's called Spicy Maya. Yes, those are actually my initials. I'd share more, but I like to keep a low public profile. Is there any way to PM you the info, while still respecting your online privacy?
BTW, for a real chocolate treat, I highly recommend the Vosges line of chocolates--so incredible and the best of the American chocolates (not entirely an oxymoron in this case!). My personal favorite is the Vosges Naga exotic candy bar, made with curry powder. Simply an experience!

Well, I haven't found a good way to put my email address on this site (a way that fools spambots, I mean), but if you know my full name you can find me on Facebook. Or, I'm JennySnacks on Twitter. You can private message me there, if you have a Twitter account.

I have formulated a guess who you are, in the meantime. :)

Vosges Naga with curry powder sounds right up my alley!

Oh dear, now I have to join the privacy-averse Zuckerberg creation! Actually, I am now a follower of JennySnacks, but I can't PM you unless you're following me. Nothing to follow on my end actually, but I did want to say hello and I hope you're doing well ;-) I bet you have figured me out. You can always Google my real name to figure out where I am. Hope to tweet/chat soon. Take care, NA
