The company that makes that chocolate is located in San Fransico in California. They have excellent products. They have a giant sign on top of their building that has become a landmark. That choclate bar, you have to add two cups of sugar for one ounce of chocolate.

The one ounce is a compromise with my blood sugars...

No...it not unsweetened, 70% is considered bittersweet, I'm up to 88%, soon I'll be able to eat all I want of unsweetened chocolate.

The pretzel is more my guilty pleasure than the other things. I'm a sucker for salty treats. The fruit bars belong to the missus and the crunch cereal belongs to my college-age daughter, who is home for the summer. I've snuck some of each, though.

Right. It's nicely sweet. I buy them in the baking section for significantly less than the similar product in Candy.
