Soap is Jabon in Spanish. GLC, you may be on to something. Alix, where does it say soap in the pic? I missed it.

No, when you scroll your cursor over the pic it says h ttp://www.soapmaker.ca/SoapPics/MayanChocolate.JPG If you edit out the space I put in the URL it will show you the same pic.

That's Soma's website!!! LOL! She is a soapmaker, she likely has the picture uploaded and then linked to her website.

Good detective work, Alix! hehe. PrincessFiona is right - I do upload my pics onto my soapmaker website (actually, it's my husband's website - mine is different; his sells a program for soapmakers to use for inventory control; mine is just about soapmaking, but I keep mine rather inactive these days, haven't updated it in years so even the pics are out-of-date).

and that's also why I said that this chocolate is going into the soap pot! Seriously, I have used cocoa to color chocolate, and if this has fats in it, it might actually make good chocolate soap! At least I won't have entirely wasted my money.

i agree with steve, it does look kinda old and discoloured. like most dairy, i've found chocolate can pick up "refrigerator" flavours, or the aromas of stuff that it's stored next to.

also, i'm not so sure if i'd buy mexican chocolate at all. ever since i saw a warning in our pediatrician's office, i'm very wary of buying any candy from mexico or central/south america. the article warned that things flavoured with tamarind, certain fruits, and chocolate contain unacceptable levels of lead. just what you don't need to be feeding to young'ins.

Oh my, buckytom!....this does sound like a good reason to discard the chocolate. I was pondering putting it into a chili, as in mole sauce....but now I won't bother. Thanks for the warning, I hadn't heard anything like it.
