We never fail to go to the Ghirardelli shop every time we are in San Francisco, CA. Ghirardelli chocolate is not readily available in most supermarkets in the Philippines even in Metro Manila so we buy enough to get us by a few months. That usually includes a pasalubong to family and friends who also loved their chocolates.
Dark chocolate with sea salt and roasted almonds is one of our favorites. There's something about the salty taste of sea salt that's perfect with chocolate. We also discovered that this went very well with wine, especially the dessert variety.
|A friend gave us a pack of Ghirardelli dark chocolate with sea salt|
|This treat had roasted almonds that provided the crunch to the chocolate|
|The information on the packaging didn't say much about the cocoa content but it was marketed as intense dark so it should be at least at 50% cocoa. The bitterness was definitely tempered by the sea salt.|
