Triple Chocolate Mousse Candy

A while back at Kroger they were have a clearance sale on this product from Russell Stover, their "Private Reserves: Triple Chocolate Mousse" with 70% dark chocolate plus white chocolate and between them milk chocolate.  Something for every chocolate taste. This 4.5oz bag was $1.09, a dollar less than it's normal price the clearance label claimed but I'm fairly certain the regular price was greater than $3 when I'd seen it originally on the shelves.  Inside were individually wrapped pieces of chocolate squares about 1inch across.  This was in spite the fact that two pieces equaled a serving according to the nutritional label.   Your Chocolate Priestess really wishes companies would package by the serving size if they must add extra packaging at all.

Each serving then has 180 calories, 10g saturated fat, <5mg cholesterol, 20mg sodium, 1g fiber, 13g sugars, 2g protein, with 4% Calcium and 10% Iron and adult needs daily.  You can see, Sisters and Brothers, that I'm showing you the full serving, two pieces, which nicely displays the dark chocolate over the top and sides then the white chocolate bottom.  Between then is a nice creamy, very mousse-like milk chocolate.  This was an interesting candy to eat slowly or allow to melt in my mouth, both let me taste all three distinct and pleasing flavors.  Not a single person I shared these with disliked them probably because they offer something for everyone.  I can highly recommend these as delightful additions to The Chocolate Cult.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
