1oz…unwrap or snap?


*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.
