We’ve found that unless you use the chocolate, it goes bad. Doing episodes once in a while just won’t cut it – nor will not looking at expiration dates on bars when we purchase them. These next two episodes are devoted to the chocolate that must be tried before it dies.
Episode 53: About To Expire!
Another round from the Northwest Chocolate Festival! Sooner or later I think you’ll be seeing a whole slew of varieties from this event – the companies were very kind and gave us so many samples. Not only that, they’re really good! Let’s check out two more!
Bakery Nouveau -United States
We want to be best friends with the guy who gave us these. Seriously. Both varieties we sampled were top notch and just extraodinary!

Hans – 3 out of 5
This time we visit Germany and Japan with a couple more varieties found at Uwajimaya (I think they were both found there at least). We some some violence, a little acquiescence, and some reflection.
Ritter Sport Milk Chocolate with Corn Flakes – Germany
Interesting square shaped bars. The packaging is fancy and everything, but yeah the corn flakes weren’t the way we expected.

Lotte Ghana Black Chocolate – Japan
Japanese chocolate is an interesting thing, especially the darker varieties. It tends to focus more of the cacao rather than the sweeter side of things which is a nice change.
