Somerville has its own chocolate maker! On Sunday, Taza Chocolate opened its doors to give tours and chocolate samples to hordes of people. The turnout on a chilly Sunday afternoon was pretty impressive.
Perhaps, the promise of samples was enough for people to bundle up and head out the door.
We also learned what the percentage means on chocolate bars. If you buy a 70% Dark chocolate bar from Taza you are getting chocolate that is 65% caca0, 5% cocoa butter and 30% sugar (there is also a little bit of vanilla in the mix). Interesting.
I will say that I probably ate too much chocolate while I was there. Their chocolate is STRONG and I forgot that real chocolate contains caffeine. The result was a very jittery Trinity. Perhaps I need a lesson in moderation.
