*I will forewarn that I am leaning towards one side on my comments in this post.
I have baked a good amount of times that I have frequently reached for unsweetened chocolate. The convenient, perfectly measured, individually wrapped pieces of goodness that are added with a variety of ingredients for a delicious end product. I was making some brownies last night and had to pick up some of the chocolate. I open it up and am taken aback. I don’t get a 1 oz. piece. I get a bar.
I flip the box over to be sure I purchased the right thing. Yes, I did. But they are advertising this great new phenom! 4 oz Easy Break Bar.
Grrr…I wanted my 1 oz wrapped piece(s) of chocolate so I didn’t have to break anything/put forth any more labor. And, easy break is not the word. I could not snap it easily. I had to get the knife out. I needed 2 oz for the recipe and the first cut barely made it along the line. On the second, most of the bar split. *Again, can you tell my bias.*
So, as nice as changes are and innovation is, sometimes sticking to the old stuff is good. I rest my case. Would love to hear your thoughts if you’ve used the new ‘cut’ of the product.
Bake on, bake on.
