Bits & Bobs We ♥: Dreamiest Chocolate Bar

by Andrea on March 28, 2011

I am not exaggerating when I say Fran’s Macadamia Bar is likely the dreamiest chocolate bar, perhaps even in the whole world.  Each bite truly feels like perfection.  As you bite down, the chocolate cracks a little, then you hit the buttery caramel, and just when it couldn’t get any better, then there’s the crunchy macadamia nuts.  It usually takes 3 -4  bites to eat the entire bar.  Inevitably, by the time you’re done, the chocolate will have melted ever so slightly on your thumb and fore finger.  So the experience ends by licking both fingers and relishing the five minutes of bliss that just transpired.  Sigh.

Madame Fran is from Seattle, and her story makes me hungry. The Macadamia Bars are my favorite, mainly because I can literally pick them up everywhere in Seattle to satisfy my every craving. If you visit one of the Fran’s shops, you are treated to the full array of her creation.  How can you say no to Double Chocolate Figs? “Plump, whole Calimyrna figs are generously filled with rich dark chocolate ganache then dipped in pure dark couverture.”

Or another favorite, how can you turn down Gray Salt Caramels? “Gray salt perfectly complements the pure dark chocolate and soft, buttery caramel in this award-winning caramel.”

By the way, I’m not opposed to be proven wrong.  If you feel there’s a dreamier chocolate bar out there, let me know, and I’m happy to do a taste comparison.  It’s a tough gig, but someone really needs to step up and take this one on for the world.
