Back in September, we had two chocolate "holidays" to celebrate, Sisters and Brothers. World Chocolate Day on the 4th and then International Chocolate Day on the 13th. While your Chocolate Priestess did not post for each of these, I did show a massive display of international chocolates I easily found in my local Kroger. Today I'm going to look four cookies from that shopping excursion.
Cadbury, right? I should hope so. This is a big food company in the UK that has a lot of different chocolate products to offer. However they do not make everything that carries their label. These "Cadbury Finger Dark/Noir" cookies are made by Burton's Foods Limited in the UK, in England specifically. There are approximately 24 3 X 0.25 inch fingers in this 5.3oz box, or 4 servings of 6 fingers. Each serving has 170 calories, 5g saturated fat, 55mg sodium, 11g sugars, 2g protein, 2% calcium and 4% iron. These contain chocolate, cocoa butter, milk, wheat, soybeans, and artificial flavors.
Streit's Wafer Rolls, Israel. That means these are Kosher dairy products if that is important to you. This box was imported by Aron Streit Inc in NYC. Compared to some of the other products I'm looking at in today's review, this one was really wrapped solidly including a silvery foil over a plastic rack.
Bauducco wafers in chocolate. This 5.82 oz sheaf has about 16 wafers of 4 wafers per serving. This is a sheaf, a simply light foil wrapper around a rectangle of cookies which I didn't know until I opened them and the wafers threatened to fall out on my table cloth.
If the rest of the international chocolate goods I purchase that day back in September are as good as these four then my store offered great selections and we made good choices. Of course this makes it harder for me to find different products next year but I'll put in the effort.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
