The Dark Side

Dark chocolate seems to be one of the trends this year (right up there with banoffee pie and cupcakes), with dark versions of the classics popping up everywhere--Hershey's Kisses, Nestle Crunch (which I luuurve, by the way!), and even M&Ms!

I'm guessing this has been out in the market for some time now, but last Saturday was the first time I saw it! The purple packaging caught my eye ("Oooh! Purple! Purrrty!") and when I saw the label saying "dark" I just let out a gasp. It was genius to put two of my favorite things together. H, who generally isn't a sweets kind of guy, much preferred it over regular M&Ms, so yes, there is a difference.

I wonder how dark it really is though. My taste buds have grown accustomed to really bitter chocolate (around 80 or even 90% cacao!), and these "dark" versions still taste quite sweet to me. Not that I'm complaining. I ate the whole damn bag, all 230 calories. (It wouldn't have been a big deal if only I hadn't just eaten a big meal and had a big buffet meal coming up later in the day!)

And can I just say, ang landi nung green M&M sa packaging! Love her!

Hmmm...now I'm beginning to wonder if it was 90 percent! Haha. I just remember a friend offering some chocolate and warning me. It is quite bitter, and you feel like it kind of dries up your tongue. But it gets better with every bite!
