As a firm believer in the almighty power of chocolate, this was big news for me, and every eight-year-old in the country: Last week, Crest unveiled chocolate toothpaste. To be clear, it’s just chocolate (and mint) flavored; the tooth-cleaning power comes from sodium fluoride. But still.
For chocolate lovers addicted to excitement, and/or a serious full-body experience, Sarris Candies makes Hot Pepper Chocolate Bars. The three-pack of its hot pepper milk chocolate bars includes a mild bar, made with Santa Cruz chiles, a medium bar made with New Mexican Chimayo red chiles and a hot bar made with habaneros. The latter has, Sarris says, “a flaming fruitiness that lingers on the palate…down your throat and up your spine.” The thrill will cost you $7.95.
