Bar of the Week: Escazu Vanilla Chili

Vanilla and chocolate go together like white tie and a top hat.  It's a classic pairing, with vanilla's light perfume emphasizing chocolate's dark depths.  

Chili and chocolate are another classic combo, one that goes back even further and is currently enjoying renewed popularity. 

But chocolate AND vanilla AND chili?  That's a whole new level!  You can experience it in this bar of the week from Raleigh, North Carolina-based small batch chocolate maker, Escazu.  In this innovative bar, Escazu combines a74% dark chocolate blended from Venezuelan, Costa Rican, and Ecuadorian beans with smoky chipotle and heady vanilla for a rich flavor with a long, warm finish.  

Stop by on Saturday, April 28, to enjoy a taste of this new classic.
