what would Salieri do?

Christmas candy lasts a lot longer around our house than it used to because we have discovered something called "portion control." This week I finally got around to sampling some German chocolate we received for Christmas. The product is called "Mozart Chocolade" by Reber-Spezialitäten. These milk chocolate treats were filled with pistachio marzipan and hazlenut praline. To make it even better, every other piece had Mozart's face on it.

Tasting this actual German chocolate reminded me of something I once read about German Chocolate Cake. The recipe is not from Germany. The cake is made with baking chocolate that was named after a "Sam German." It was originally known as German's Chocolate Cake.

While we're talking chocolate, somebody at work gave me a sample of "The Healthy Chocolate" by Xoçai. It was really good and really dark. My wife thought it was a little too bitter though.

But wait, there's more. Here's a photo of some Cacao Reserve by Hershey's ready to eat at our local Kroger. It's pretty good too.

Hi, Frank. I'm a Knoxvillian living in England for a couple of years, and I spent Christmas in Munich and Salzburg, the latter of course being the home of Mozart. You wouldn't believe how crazy people went over the Mozart chocolate. You could see tourists hoarding it in bags on the buses and trains around town. My husband and I didn't really know what it was, so we just bought a small bag for the novelty of it. Unfortunately, we LOVED the stuff and have been using "portion control" to ration it out for as long as possible. Hope you enjoyed it as much!

If you're looking for a good dark chocolate, a really tasty bar is Cote d'Or 70% cacao. I eat a little for "health reasons" (then I eat a Lindt bar to wash it down -- ha ha).

Hi Frank. Here is so more information about Xocai Chocolate. The company's products are extremely rich in antioxidants and top the ORAC scale. They chose to market their products through independent Distributors. The compensation plan is awesome. Some top celebrities including Larry King and Marie Osmond joined the company as Distributors. There is a rumor circulating that Oprah has instructed her research team to confirm the product's many health benefits. MXI's Xocai is definitely a company to look into.
