Today is Chocolate Mint Day, and while I don’t normally go out and buy myself candy or chocolate, I was lucky enough to already have a variety of chocolate and mint things in my house.
Also, food holidays are worth celebrating, in case you haven’t noticed.
I had a big chunk of peppermint bark, a little square of peppermint bark, and a mint filled dark chocolate square.
My favorite out of all of these was the Ghiradelli dark chocolate with mint filling. The bitter dark chocolate is in perfect contrast to the sweet, cool filling. This square has the most complexity out of all three, and was also least sugary. Also, dark chocolate, aw yeah!
Verdict? Today is a day dedicated to eating chocolate. What are you waiting for? There are tons of varieties, not just these. There’s something for just about anyone out there. Eat, eat!
