This will probably come as a shock to most of you, but I spend about $80 a month on chocolate. Some people have gas budgets, some people have alcohol budgets, I have a chocolate budget. Which means I don’t have an alcohol budget, because all the money I would spend on alcohol gets siphoned into my chocolate budget. I’ll admit, most of the budget is for those $2 packs of Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups – becuase I can’t come within a one mile radius of them without buying a pack (which sucks, for my pocketbook, considering I live two blocks away from a Whole Foods) – but the remaining $30-40 dollars goes toward fancy chocolate bars, like the ones pictured above.
My favorite chocolate ever? Moonstruck’s 68% cacao bar (not pictured becuase it never lasts long enough for me to photograph). It is literally the creamiest dark chocolate you will ever eat. My favorite bean-to-bar chocolate was Askinosie, until I tried Moonstruck’s single origin. I don’t know how they do it, but Moonstruck has some mad chocolate making abilities. And if you enjoy dark chocolate in the slightest, you should check out the companies listed below. In my opinion, they’ve created some of the greatest bars available.
