The Chocolate Traveler

The Chocolate Traveler
I first spotted The Chocolate Traveler while in the checkout line at Trader Joe’s, displayed right next to bars of Valrhona and Lindt competing for my attention. With a package more fitting for “Carmen San Diego” than MarieBelle I wasn’t sure what to expect, but being a chocolate lover and travel addict I had to investigate. With 16 slices of dark, rich chocolate, this little tin was a pleasant surprise. Each wedge is perfectly sized and easily satisfies my 11am (and 3pm and 9pm) chocolate craving, without the guilt of eating an entire chocolate bar. You can throw the tough, portable package into your bag or desk drawer (where mine is secretly stashed) and always know the Chocolate Traveler will keep its contents safe, fresh, and ready for life’s adventures. While I am addicted to the Bittersweet variety, the Chocolate Traveler comes in four flavors for you to enjoy: Bittersweet (70%), Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Coffee and Dark Chocolate Mint. In case you can’t stop at just one slice, each flavor is also available in “carb controlled” versions.

Sign me up for the bittersweet, too. I just love this website (almost as much as I love chocolate!) Next, you need to try the chocolate tasting at the “champagne chocolate” shop (sorry, can’t remember the fancy name).
PS. Am I supposed to see the code that appears above the name field?

Hi Debbie! Ok, you caught me. Yes, in its current state, you are suppose to see the code. However, the “comments” page is still one that I am working on…So, what is this “champage chocolate” shop that you speak of? Is it in Los Angeles? It’s sounds super-yummy! – Andrew

The fancy “champagne chocolate” place (they have great champagne truffles) is La Maison du Chocolat. The tastings are held in NYC and cost $50, you can find out more at their website.
