Exotic tastes of my middle aged mother!
I’d never have imagined that my Mom would like red pepper and pistachio dark chocolate but when I visited last weekend, she was raving about the new Grace Under Fire Bar. (side note: She must have sought this out on her own at our Waterbury Store since I didn’t give it to her!). When I expressed my surprise about this, she reminded me how much she enjoyed the Raspberry Pink Peppercorn Truffles I gave her a few years ago in the Chocolate Obsession box. I’d completely forgotten about that – and really thought she liked the Raspberry aspect, not the peppery taste.
I’ve always known that she is a dark chocolate freak – growing up, we would fight over the Hershey Special Dark in the bag of miniatures and I always got a dark chocolate Easter bunny. Today, the 54% Dark Chocolate Squares are a staple in her house and the Dark Chocolate Nonpareils a must-have in her Christmas Stocking. And she’s a huge fan of Mexican food – her best friend brings back chili peppers from New Mexico when she visits. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to me that she likes spicy chocolate.
