|4.99 Landshut Riesling from ALDI. Fruity-tastic.|
Moser-Roth chocolate (German, naturlich), any of the fine bars available for between 1.79 and 1.89. Now that the price of Lindt and Ghirardelli has gone well north of $3.00, Moser-Roth emerges as the high-quality brand with the super-deal price. They make a wide line of chocolate with varying levels of cacao (70%, 85% for the mainliners like me, milk, chili, mint, caramel, etc.). The large flat bar is elegantly packaged, just like the big-name guys, and in a thoughtful touch, each large bar opens to reveal five individually foil-wrapped bars, which makes it easier to avoid eating the entire bar at once, as is my natural inclination. Candy Blog gives the 70% bar a 7/10 rating.
Bonus Points: Moser-Roth automatically bumps up to an 8.5/10 rating in my book because of the Houses of the Holy-ish font used for the brand logo.
So for less than $7, you can walk out of ALDI mit ein big old German Weinbuzz und eine grosse Schokoladebuzz. Good times!
