Yeah I made up that part about K-Mart as I have no idea if they carry Vosges chocolate bars. I’d guess no…but it’s such a funnier title with the ugly-‘merican-imperialist-store reference!
I like Vosges. WE like Vosges. Part of our infatuation with the company is that an attractive female named Katrina heads it up, and it helps that Kat and co make damn good tasting chocolate too.
For my last birthday, Mrs. Guru bought me the Goji Bar from Vosges. “Tibetan goji berries pink Himalayan salt deep milk chocolate”. And they’re good. Not awesometabulous but tasty.
but they’re milky.
I didn’t read the package before I jumped in and I remarked to Mrs. Guru how it had an enjoyable milky dark chocolate taste. Then I saw that Vosges wrote 45% caCAO on the box and called it milk chocolate and there you go — it tasted like what they’re selling. And then of course with the salt in there, they have me hooked. I love chocolate with salt. Why? You know how when you put salt on things you get more flavor? Yeah – that.
Of course it’s not all peaches and herb. On the back of the package Katrina gives her slightly self-indulgent suggestion on how to eat the bar:
“Breathe…Engage your senses. Take 3 ujjayi breaths, quiet the chattering mind and be in the present moment”
“See…A darker milk chocolate spreckled with hues of pink” …
yeah yeah yeah we get it, hippy.. we’ll buy your $10 chocolate bars.
This reminds me I need to try more vosges.
I’m thinking they left the Goji pieces small because they can be bitter.
