10 pound block of Ghirardelli chocolate
 
I saw this at the store for 19.99. It seems like such a big block, I'm not sure if I should get it. It's semisweet, seems like a pretty good deal for a good quality chocolate. What do you think?

what are you waiting for :lol: It's definately a good deal!

That's an incredble deal! I'd grab 2 if I were you! :lol: Let us know if you snag one! By the way, what store were you at?

htc 01-07-2005 03:48 PM

It's a Trader Joes. Maybe I will get two. Though does it keep THAT long?

No, it does not. Send that second hunk to me!

PA Baker 01-07-2005 04:01 PM

Reason number 1027 that I'm angry there aren't Trader Joe's around here! :twisted:

I don't think we have TJ's around here either, PA. Maybe in the District. Too far for me, even for a bargain hunk of chocolate.

Especially with 2 hour traffic jams!
Hubby was supposed to be in DC this past week and I gave him a little list of things to pick up at Whole Foods btu his meetings were canceled last minute. We are an impressive area, in terms of culture, politics (state capitol), variety of restaurants even, but when it comes grocery stores, it's very main stream and conservative!

I feel very fortunate that where I live, we have a lot of choices for grocries. Trader Joes has a lot of good quality stuff,but I also try to buy organic when possible and we have a local grocery chain that carrys organic meats/veggies at a reasonable. price.

Though we dont have a lot of cool specialty restaurants that I see them feature on foodtv. I guess that's the trade off.
