Hot Chilli Pepper Chocolate???

We were at Target this morning and came across an unusual candy (chocolate) bar - Hot Chilli Pepper. It had been marked down a couple of times and was now .98 cents for a 3.5 oz bar, so I snagged it.

The girl wasn't too sure she'd want to try it - but the boy, who isn't afraid of a little heat - was all up for it. "I want the first piece!" he exclaimed.

I am not a big fan of dark chocolate - but hey it's supposed to be good for you - so I'll exchange a little health for a little taste.

The bar is "extra fine dark chocolate with chilli" - there are actual little bits of chilli pepper flakes in the bar. At first it just tastes like a regular dark chocolate candy bar - pretty mediocre in my opinion. Then your mouth starts to warm up. It got pretty hot. The girl didn't want to finish hers but the boy was wanting second and thirds.

Overall it was OK - better than just "plain" dark chocolate.

This would be something I would love - dark chocolate and spicy food! Cool find.

I have a friend who brings back crazy flavors of chocolate bars when he goes to Switzerland twice a year. This would be right up his alley, and also reminds me of the movie Chocolat.
