Remember when someone got peanut butter on another person's chocolate and at first they were horrified, but then Reese's Peanut Cups happened? OK, that may have just been a commercial in the '70s (are we dating ourselves?), but La Colombe owners Todd Carmichael and J.P. Iberti have been tinkering around for the last six months and intentionally have been mixing their coffee with different chocolates to find the perfect match. And this weekend, they will unveil their newest creations.
Two new chocolate bars, created in partnership with master chocolatier Christopher Curtin from Eclat Chocolate in Pennsylvania, will hit the cafe this weekend. The first, Morning Break, is a highly caffeinated bar made from milk chocolate and nizza coffee chunks. The other, Turkish, is dark chocolate combined with finely grained nizza grounds. Sure, the $7 bars will have a grittier taste than say a Hershey bar, but it will give you a nice jolt in the afternoon if you're in the need for a snack and a pick me up.
