I love whole grains and I love chocolate.
So when I saw this curious Muzzi chocolate bar in a terrific Italian traiteur and grocer, Au Village Italien, I had to add it to my shopping basket. Inside the bar was little bits of puffed farro, or spelt as one would say in English.
(It’s épautre in French, dinkel in German and for the brainiacs out there, it’s triticum dicoccum in Latin.)
I was curious to taste how the dark Italian chocolate would meet up with the earthy, crispy little bits of whole grains and I was not disappointed. Boy…I took one bite of this and stopped in my tracks.
What a great bar of chocolate!
Speaking of not being disappointed, did you ever correspond with someone online, then meet up with them to find out they’re nothing like you think?
Okay, you don’t need to admit to that.
But I will.
