Chocolate Mondays: Cacao Shopping
Hello Everyone...You know

Market in Queens on Broadway around 34. Sorry for being so vague! The place is hopping by the way around 11:30 I think it's all because of the gourmet Buffet and of course all the other goodies they have. Like a wall of Chocolate! I love finding the unexpected and even with Queens wacky street number system that drives the best navigators mad. There are many a treasure in Queens...
Well this place has quite a little selection. Godiva, Lindt... and Chocolates eh hem.. Cacao I'd never seen before. The people at the register seemed quite puzzled at my taking pictures until i told them I was a cake decorator looking for Chocolate to use. Forgot my manners for a second. Always ask and be clear what your doing.
I honestly couldn't decide at the last min. what to get. I think I will buy the Lindt for
Chocolate Bark but I did buy the Ghirardelli 100% Cocoa Powder While I decide which Cacao to purchase. I let you know soon!

make chocolate today. Do you know what Company?
|This one was just a little over 4$|
|3$ the less percentage of cocoa or cacao the less expense|
|I really have to watch ...the amount of sugar intake. I can almost taste these|
just by smelling them...so good...I imagine. I think I'm getting at least
|10-11 $ Rupunzel is another organization that encourages growers '|
to forgo pesticides, but I want Cacao which isn't heated like cocoa,
which take away a good bit of the compounds we talked about last
