Name: Dark Chocolate Rocky Road Candy

Brand: Droga

Origin: San Francisco

Found at:
Miette (449 Octavia)

Cost: $4

Ingredients: Chocolate, corn syrup, sugar, dry-roasted peanuts, xanthan gum, invert sugar, gelatin, water, sorbitol, vanilla.

Calories per serving:
Not listed

Why I bought it:
I was charmed by the name, tag line ("a good addiction") and homegrown origin.

Tasting notes: Be careful not to inhale it in one bite. The dry-roasted peanuts in place of the more traditional walnut is a superior substitution.

Would I buy it again? Yes, particularly for gifts, though the price is a bit steep for a one-ounce piece.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Daily Candy declared an addiction to Droga.
