I do fun things sometimes.
In fact, this Friday, I took part in a dinner with a bunch of DC-area triathletes and runners that Sarah kindly organized.
Where we TALKED about swimming and running, and reviewed chocolate; specifically, we checked out some new test bars from Potomac Chocolate.
Ben, the mastermind behind the Potomac Chocolate’s 82% cacao Upala bar that I enjoy in large enough quantities to justify large-scale purchases, had sent me two developmental bars to check out. When I told him I’d get the opinions of about a dozen runners and triathletes, he asked if I would need more bars.
Evidently, triathletes have quite the reputation for eating. Including eating artisan dark chocolate. We absolutely adored one of Ben’s experimental bars, and enjoyed the smooth texture and mild flavor immensely. I was luckily able to stash half of it to take home, since Lauren, a badass who recently finished an Ironman, made toffee.
She included salt in it. Lauren, I love you. Please don’t go back to Denver.
Have you ever had a developmental chocolate bar? Did you share it with hungry runners?
