The leaves are falling and the seasons are changing. The wind has a chill to it as it blows through the streets and around the holiday decorations that are going up. Halloween is gone and Thanksgiving and Christmas are on their way. What better time to share the flavor of the season with friends and family?
We received our holiday samples of barkTHINS Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed and Dark Chocolate Peppermint and Pretzel and set them prettily amongst our holiday display with pumpkins and seasonal lighting. My initial plan had been to save them for Halloween when we could share them with our guests, but my husband (who doesn’t like chocolate, mind you) kept asking, “can we eat them now?” After a couple days I broke down and said OK. They were gone by the next morning.
Growing up I always joked that dark chocolate was for moms…And here at MomStart- barkTHINS dark chocolate goodies most definitely are. I absolutely love the chocolate they use for their product. There is no other word for their chocolate but savory. There is no bitter aftertaste or waxy residue left in your mouth after you eat. Just a craving for more.
I like the crispness of their product as well. It doesn’t hurt your teeth and you get a nice crunchy mouthful of heaven. The pumpkin seed barkTHINS do not feel like you’re eating seeds, and you get that nice autumn flavor of the season. I will admit I was apprehensive about eating chocolate with seeds, but I wolfed that bag down all on my own without sharing- and I would do it again.
The peppermint pretzel product on the other hand, had bits of peppermint candies with pretzel covered in chocolate. Although this might not seem like a traditional combination, it was a battle for the last delicious piece. (Fortunately we were able to break it in half and share with only a little animosity).
I really recommend stopping in at your local market and getting a bag- even if you don’t think it’s quite for you. I know you will love it. I can’t wait till my next trip to Costco where I am going to load up my minimal cupboard space with my new favorite snack. It is definitely an after-dinner snack that we will have on our thanksgiving table and one that we will share with our family for Christmas holidays.
