O.M. Ghirardelli!

I purchased my first bag of Ghirardelli chocolate on a whim a few years ago while picking up toothpaste at CVS Pharmacy just minutes from my home.  I was immediately in love.  The rich, smooth texture of this delectable chocolate mirrors none that I have come across in my life.  None.  I can appreciate a good piece of chocolate, and just like Michael Jackson's Tour planned before his untimely death, "THIS IS IT!"

Over the summer, Valley Stream Dad and I took a short trip to Chicago where we ran into a Ghirardelli ice cream shop.  Yes, I immediately started salivating and put it on my "To Do" list before heading back to NY.  I am such a huge fan of Ghirardelli that I can't pass up a taste whenever I see those perfect-sized chocolate squares or an ice cream shop.

Peppermint Bark
Ghirardelli sent me a small box of its newest holiday flavors in exchange for an honest review.  I have to admit that I am not a fan of anything peppermint, but let I honestly enjoyed eating the Peppermint Bark.  One side is white chocolate sprinkled with red peppermint flakes and the bottom of the square is milk chocolate. The mint is not overwhelming and the balance of the white, chocolate and peppermint are perfect for any chocolate lover.

Welcome Winter with Ghirardelli Chocolate
Peppermint Bark with Dark Chocolate
For those of you who like dark chocolate, you're in luck.  Ghirardelli also has a dark chocolate version of its holiday Peppermint Bark.  I still love the smooth texture of the chocolate as any Ghirardelli lover would, but I am not nor will ever be a fan of dark chocolate.  I will let you decide this one.

Pumpkin Spice
Other than the out of business Twinky, I am not a lover of cream filled treats.  However, after biting into the Pumpkin Spice Caramel filled square, I have since changed my mind.  The caramel filling does not impose upon your tongue and the pumpkin is very minimal. 

There's something about white and chocolate that concern me.  I think it won't taste anything like chocolate.  As I brought the Eggnog square to my mouth, I was a bit overwhelmed by the aroma of the square.  I've never had Eggnog so I really don't know if the taste is true or not.  I nibbled it like a bird and found it to be very sweet.  The taste on my tounge was quite refreshing, but I don't think this flavor will be my first pick of the four.
