Well last week I found the most delicious sugar free chocolate bar. I don't know why I was even looking at the chocolate bars. I guess a woman doesn't really need a reason now does she. I picked it up and flipped it to the back like I always do to read the label. My eyes scan quickly until I find the sugar content. What? Zero grams? How is that possible? Especially since all the other dark chocolate bars have like 20 grams. I flip it back to the front. Yep, there it is at the top, Sugar Free. Hmmm....this might be calling my name. I flip it back over to look at the ingredients list. Hooray! No aspartame! It goes into the cart. I pay for it and take it out to the car before I rip it open to check it out. WOW! It tastes pretty darn good.
I start to drive away. I consider whether or not I will share or even let Miles in on this little secret. He does love chocolate too. I will admit you must have some inclination towards dark chocolate or you might not be as thrilled as I am. I eat several squares before I finally tell him about it. He too is amazed at how delicious it is. He is a dark chocolate lover.
I come back the next day to eat a little square and what do you know that is about all that was left! Perhaps I shouldn't have shared after all!
Why didn't I buy another one when I was there today?
Don't let the star anise ingredient scare you away. Miles hates anise and he didn't even notice it. It probably adds to the over all flavor but you can't taste it in there alone. You can taste a little of the espresso however and that is why I loved it so much!
