We had nine tasting tables set up, including percentages:
bars with stuff-in-them:
and truffles and bonbons:
There was even a raffle!:
People stocked up pretty nicely:
And subsequently made themselves a little sick, chocolate-drunk, or both.
Looking at the surveys, some of the most popular items were the Zoe barks and bonbons, the Li-Lac marzipan acorns and hazelnut truffles, all the Kopali chocolate-covered items, the Christopher Elbow Honey Spice bonbon (bought at 2Beans), the Beschle 88% dark chocolate bar (bought at 2Beans), the Fine & Raw Truffle Chunky bar, and the Equal Exchange Lemon Ginger Black Pepper bar.
The most controversial items (lots of lovers and skeptics), somewhat unsurprisingly, were the Pacari Raw 100% chocolate bar and the Al Nassma Camel's Milk bar (bought at 2Beans).
Alyssa Tanchajja took all these amazing photos for us, including this one of a great friend of the blog sampling the fan-favorite Li-Lac marzipan acorns:
We had a great time, and we hope you did too!
Thanks so much to our sponsors!
Bottom Line: Stick with us.
