What Exactly Is Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark?
From the name alone, bark doesn't sound particularly appetizing. It's actually just the name for a sheet of chocolate that is often covered with nuts, fruits, candy or even more pieces of chocolate. It's rustic looking in the sense that it seems thrown together, not laid out in a specific pattern, and it is often broken into shards of various sizes to share and serve, though the Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Chocolate Collection offers the iconic Ghirardelli peppermint bark in squares, so you don't have to share. The term 'bark' seems much less odd when you see a box full of shards that actually bear a slight resemblance to pieces of tree bark. Bark can be made with any kind of chocolate and usually consists of more than one kind layered together. Ghirardelli chocolate peppermint bark has layers of white and dark chocolate topped with crushed peppermint candies and is very popular around Christmas and the holidays.
What Should You Look For in Good Chocolate?
There's really no right or wrong way to taste chocolate. Remember that the best chocolate is the one you like the most. When tasting, look for and describe what pleases you in the chocolates you try, as well as what you find less appealing. Use all your senses to examine it. What color and sheen does it have? Notice the color, gloss, aroma and even the sound of it. When you break it, does it snap? Does it feel a certain way as it melts on your tongue? Finally, how does it taste?
