Guest Post: Chocolove Raspberries in Dark Chocolate

October 22nd, 2012 by Neil

As I try to recover from a week in New Orleans, ex-pat friend Knile has a couple of guest posts on deck. ~Rosa I don’t remember where I picked up this Chocolove bar. It could have been downtown here or on my Swiss trip. Either way, I clearly didn’t read the label closely to find […]

Chocolove – going Southern and local for inspiration?

August 16th, 2012 by Rosa

Last week’s news post was about regional American candies. Today, I’m sharing a Serious Eats post that suggests that Chocolove’s new bars,  Peach & Pecan and Salted Peanut, were crafted with a focus on the local specialties of Georgia. While the former definitely sounds Georgian (what’s more associated with Georgia than peaches, or more southern than […]

Chocolove Toffee & Almonds in Milk Chocolate

July 15th, 2011 by Rosa

I recently attended the wedding of my boyfriend’s cousin. The wedding was held in Colorado, and the bride and groom chose to give their guests gift baskets with locally made treats and favors, including bars of Chocolove chocolate. That’s my kind of wedding! The back of the Toffee & Almonds in Milk Chocolate bar described […]

Chocolove Holiday Fruits and Nuts in Dark Chocolate

March 22nd, 2010 by Rosa

I bought this Chocolove Holiday bar on sale in January. Thus I think that it’s safe to assume that “holiday” is PC for Christmas. It’s described on the back as follows: “Sweet currants, tart cherries, zesty orange and spicy ginger compliment a mix of crunchy pecans, walnuts and hazelnuts enrobed in dark chocolate… This classic […]

Week o’ News and Serious Eats Does PB and Chocolate

August 16th, 2010 by Rosa

Today marks the start of my second week out of town for an fMRI training course. I wrote the first week’s (aka last week’s) reviews before I left, thinking that I’d write this week’s posts from Michigan. Turns out that 4+ hours of lecture and ~4 hours of MATLAB programming per day is mentally draining. […]

Master’s Tea with Judy Logback

March 16th, 2009 by Rosa

A couple of weeks ago, on February 25th, I skipped my bootcamp class at the gym and went to a Master’s Tea with Judy Logback, the founder of Kallari chocolates, instead. After complaining about the Times Styles’ snarky chocolate review that fawned over Kallari a bit too much, how could I pass up the opportunity […]

Snarky Chocolate Reviews from the NY Times

December 9th, 2008 by Rosa

After the Times Dining article on cacao growers and Kallari, article author Jill Santopietro wrote a follow-up taste test of various other organic and fair trade chocolates. She was pretty disaparing and snarky. While I’ve reviewed most of the brands she’s tried (Endangered Species, Chocolove, Green and Black’s, Theo, and Dagoba) , the only bar […]

Calhoun College Chocolate Tasting Notes, Round II

May 1st, 2008 by Rosa

After the success of my first chocolate tasting (notes here), I held a second one with the extra bars. Unfortunately, by the time the second tasting rolled around, most of the bars had bloomed thanks to New Haven humidity and temperature fluctuations and a lack of air conditioning. The Vosges chocolate bars were the only […]

Calhoun College Chocolate Tasting Notes

March 18th, 2008 by Rosa

My tasting notes, as promised. I loved how I was able to notice the subtle differences between the bars by tasting them all together. For example, when I first tasted the Scharffen Berger Extra Rich Milk, I thought it was sweet and yogurty. Tasting it right after the Chocolove Milk and the Papua single origin […]

Calhoun College Chocolate Tasting

March 4th, 2008 by Rosa

Last Wednesday was further proof that my residential college, Calhoun, is the best residential college. After the success of my personal chocolate party, I asked my residential college Master if we could do one for the college. He said sure, if I was willing to plan it, and the gears were set in motion. A […]
