Chocolate for Dad, not for the kids

For dads who are also chocolate aficionados, these La Colombe bars are a not-too-sweet treat for his special day. Rich, dark coffee beans sourced from Honduras, Nicaragua, and Peru are blended with cocoa beans to create a creamy, lush chocolate flavor. I especially loved the coconut addition in the coconut mocha bar, with the subtlest hint of a tropical breeze. Yes, they are pricey, but these bars are meant to be savored in small servings, not gobbled in one sitting.
