Lake Champlain Five Star Chocolate Bar—Hazelnut September 19, 2008

Five Star Chocolate Bar (Hazelnut)

Oh, dear. I’ve been trying to cut back on chocolate (sacrilege, I know) and now I discover these little chunks of heaven. Lake Champlain calls them “Hazelnut Five Star Chocolate Bars,” but really they’re more like pralinés from a Swiss chocolatier. Biting through the thin milk chocolate exterior, one discovers a heavenly gianduja that’s alternately melt-in-your-mouth smooth and tantalizingly crispy. The bars may seem pricey at $3.99 for 1.9oz (at Whole Foods), but as a treat they’re worth every penny. Plus, someone with greater restraint than I could easily make two servings out of a bar. Okay, maybe not easily, but it might be possible if you read the nutrition facts first!

    Wow! I just wanted to thank you for the really kind and awesome words about our Five Star Bar. I’m so glad you enjoyed it!! I work for Lake Champlain Chocolates and it makes me nearly giddy each time I see great reviews like this. Once in a while, we find a chocolate isn’t a match for someone and we have to take the bad with the good but I sure do love the good and definitely want to thank you for including us in your blog. I write a blog and I know how important it tis to know people are paying attention. And I’m glad I was! Again, thank you!
    Sincerely, Leann
