Dark Chocolate Covered Acai

My sister introduced me to this amazing chocolate snack the other day. It comes in a two-pound bag and inside are little acai fruits and blueberries covered in luscious dark chocolate.

I’m crazy smitten with acai ever since I discovered the palm-tree fruit in Brazil several years back (at a place appropriately called “Acai”) so I knew I would fall in love with this snack the second I pop one in my mouth … and I was right. It was chewy and decadent.  I was head over heal at first bite.

She told me that I can pick up the bag at Costco but I decided to order it via Amazon instead since I don’t have the membership to the store. Two days later, the box arrived at my doorstep. To my disappointment, the chocolate arrived in one, large block, instead of little chocolate nuggets! eek I had to put the chocolate block in the refrigerator immediately so that it won’t pour out of the bag.

I was bummed but I don’t blame Amazon … it’s been stupid hot lately and it’s inevitable that it would melt away completely. I guess I need to pay the membership to Costco to pick up another bag or wait until the weather cools off to order again.

I think I’ll just wait. Besides, it’s too hot to get in my car and fight for a parking space at the nearby Costco.  It’s a jungle out there.  So, until the arrival of autumn, I will be “sawing” the block with serrated knife in hopes of chipping away a small piece.

Thanks, Amazon, for another great customer service.  I received a full refund and got to keep the product.

On a completely different and more serious note, a tragedy struck the hockey world today. A plane carrying a Russian hockey team crashed, killing 43 people, including Pavol Demitra, who played for the LA Kings a few years ago.

I really enjoyed watching Demo play and he was one of my favorite players during the 2005-2006 season when he was a King.  Here’s me and Demo at Tip-A-King in 2005.

This breaks my heart.  My thoughts and prayers are with their friends and family, and everyone who’ve lost their hero today.
