Recently, as part of the Foodbuzz program, I was selected to try out samples of Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolates. I absolutely love dark chocolate, so I was pretty psyched to be chosen.
My lovely package of samples included three large chocolate bars and two bags filled with individual chocolate squares.
I really loved the packaging. The dark colors really conveyed the “intense dark chocolate” theme. The three flavors sampled were midnight reverie (86% cacao), twilight delight (72% cacao) and sea salt soiree.
I enjoyed the taste of all three and it was hard to choose a favorite. The Midnight Reverie and Twilight Delight really delivered on the promise of intense dark chocolate. The midnight reverie was obviously the most bittersweet, but had hints of cherry and other fruits. The sea salt soiree used a semisweet chocolate but had a crunch of bits of almonds and sea salt that was enjoyable.
I enjoyed the individually wrapped squares the best because it was a perfect snack bite. I don’t have as much self-control with the larger bars. One square a day was perfect to satisfy my chocolate urges.
For the large chocolate bars, they are great for baking with. I melted some to make Nigella chocolate pudding.
