We tasted 6--cocoa nibs, a milk, 62% Semisweet, 70% Bittersweet, and 99% and 100% Unsweetened. I wouldn't recommend eating 99% or 100% but they had us try it for comparison. I'm sure it's amazing in baking!

Plus we had brunch there so while we waited for our table we shared (OK, I gave DH a bite!) a chocolate scone, then for dessert I had a chocolate hazelnut tort and DH had a piece of chocolate cheesecake with a cacao nib crust. Talk about chocolate overload! Oh, but it was soooo good!

We stocked up on our supply, mud so if you want to road trip to PA I'll conduct a private tasting just for you!

(we bought milk, semi, bitter, and chocolate covered ginger--oh man, is that good!)

OK, now I love you again. Are you going to do any baking with the chocolate-covered ginger? that would be interesting.

So far I've just been eating it as is. It came in a small container so I don't have a lot to work with but I'm thinking about making some of my own and playing around with it (besides I'll have to get my fix somehow after I run out!)

I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip even though it rained. That is tipical of S.F. It is a beautiful place to visit.....and is famous for putting stop signs at the middle of a very steap hill..did you go down Lombard street? That is a thrill..one I won't do again.

We wanted to, but when we drove by it was closed because they were filming a movie on it. We did the trolly ride--we ended up standing in the very back, practically hanging over the edge--that was enough up and down for me!
