I didn’t drink coffee until I was well into my adult years. There wasn’t a specific reason I didn’t drink it; it just never interested me very much. Although the aroma of coffee was always so tempting, I couldn’t imagine the taste living up to the scent. When I finally decided to become a coffee drinker, I had to ease into it. Adding some hot chocolate mix to the coffee seemed like the ticket because it erased any hint of bitterness and added a touch of sweetness. I eventually weaned myself off the hot chocolate blend by switching to more traditional cream and sugar, but by then, I was hooked on the flavor of mocha.
Sconza Dark Chocolate Raisins were a real wow find last year. The plump, juicy raisins covered with smooth, dark chocolate border on addictive. Could Sconza Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans live up to that taste experience? Oh yes, they could! The 70% cacao qualifies the chocolate for health food status, right? The “international blend” beans are coffee made deliciously crunchy. Together, they fall into the “betcha can’t eat just one” category. Allen agreed, and we are competitively eating our way to the bottom of the bag!
