    Fact: There is a restaurant in DC called “Bread and Chocolate” and they serve breakfast.

    1. Lauren

      They had a location in Eastern Market, but they shut down shortly before you visited with us, Hannah. But wouldn’t it have been great to flick your hair, put on your best jet-setting voice, and say, “Ah, yes, Bread and Chocolate on Pennsylvania Avenue, of course!”

  2. Lauren

    I agree with all your assessments, with the caveat that my palate merely registered “fruit,” rather than “red currant, unripe raspberries, and pineapple.” 😉 Super taster I am not.

    My favorite is the Coconut Curry, with Hazelnut Crunch in second. I looove that curry, almost ginger bready-y. I will probably buy some today, since I’ve been bribing myself into doing my pre-Taiwan research.

  3. Tammy

    hmmm. I would find this too tangy based upon your assessment but I would love to have some of Lauren’s coconut curry. Sounds great.

  4. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Mmm…what a genius flavor combination. Chocolate filled with crunchy croutons sounds amazing!

    Intriguing bread and chocolate. The only bread and chocolate combo I’ve had was toast with Nutella 🙂

    The packaging is very cute. I’ve never tried this chocolate, I’m not even sure if i can get it where I live, but I have to track it down now.

    cute package and what a bizarre idea – sort of like turning pain au chocolat inside out – but one I would love to try – that sucks that you have to work saturday – hope you get lots of lovely time in lieu

    Blasted! You have been posting…why aren’t they coming to my gmail? Boooo, evil gmail. PS – loved the cute package on this chocolatey-bread-thingy. 🙂

  8. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    So intriguing! When I saw the title of this, I thought the product was going to be bread-like but with cocoa. Like fruit bread but chocolate bread. So I was extra interested to see what it actually turned out to be! It’s a pity the taste wasn’t quite to your liking (I suspect the extra crispy texture may be not quite to mine :P) but it certainly wins points in the unusual stakes.

    I hope you don’t have to work next Saturday…

    wow intriguing! is this vegan??

    I really love this bar, I do. But I suppose the more unripe raspberries you throw at me, the more I’ll… be happy? Come back for more? Froth at the mouth? – I hope not.

    Maybe my love for Theo Bread & Chocolate is partially due to those darned cute kitties! So cute (so kitties)! I do think I like Fig, Fennel & Almond best of their fantasy flavors series though.

  11. Cait's Plate

    Wow – I’ve never heard of this! That flavor combo is incredibly…interesting? Haha. Too bad the flavor isn’t better all together but still cool that you got to try it!

    Chocolate for breakfast? That’s just POPPYCOCK!

    I too knew that you already ate this chocolate… psychic powers galore!

  13. Alisa Fleming

    I saw that bar on sale this week and was so bummed when I saw that it had dairy in it! Oh well, can’t win them all.

  14. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    That sounds like an amazing combination! Is Theo chocolate based in Seattle? I remember my parents visiting there and going on a tour of the factory of something.

  15. Miri Leigh

    What a wonderful combination of ingredients– thanks for posting!

  16. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Breakfast chocolate? Genius, I say! Poky sharp pieces of crouton sounds a little dangerous though – samurai swords is not what I’m usually looking for when it comes to chocolate. lol. And doesn’t French-anything make it instantly fancy? heh.

  17. penny aka jeroxie

    the package is awesomely cute! I can’t help myself to reach out for a piece/s of chocolate while reading this.

  18. Ladybird

    Oh wow, I’ve never heard of this chocolate brand before.. the flavour combinations are definitely original! Drooling at the thought of the one with fig, fennel and almond!

  19. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh my! Bread chocolate? I must get my paws (pic of cat prompted) on some of this to try it! 😀

  20. Mia Summer Rose

    Hurrrayyyy for chocolate breakfast , i love to think of fairies , chocolate and breakfast all at once and it makes me happy and makes me gay 🙂
    Cute blog and happy to meet u Hannah!

  21. Louise

    I love the packaging too. Bread and chocolate is so a breakfast food- pain au chocolat, nutella on toast. Sadly this incarnation does sound a bit too much. I was getting worried at your mention of shards and brutal. Oh dear. It had so much promise.

  22. Kath Lockett

    Shards and tanginess notwithstanding, I’d gladly have that for breakfast. Every day.
    With coffee, of course…..

  23. Errign

    I’ve tried a few Theo varieties and I liked this one simply because it was unique. I do remember being amazed at how crunchy the bread crumbs were though!

  24. The Teenage Taste

    Oooh, this chocolate sounds fabulous! I need to buy some!

  25. anh@anhsfoodblog

    ohhh! I just fall in love with the packaging first. Is that okay? lol

  26. Agnes

    Bread chocolate? Wait – what?

    And those cats kind of freak me out a bit… :p

  27. Anna Johnston

    OK…, what do I think of think of this chocolate bread business…., I’d definatly want to taste it, I mean it’s chocolate right. Aaahhh, call me old fashioned but I think I’m more your smother the bread with chocolatey goodness type…, but I’m intrigued. But the one with fig & almond…. (notice how I morphed out the fennel)…, I just don’t see things I don’t like (me & the fennel don’t get along). 🙂 🙂
    Now…, pass me a slice of this chocy bread & stop being a hog Bestie 🙂

  28. Camille

    I, too, was a little disappointed with this one. It had such great potential, but somehow doesn’t live up to its own promise.

    And speaking of chocolate (although when are we not?) I saw some Bovetti bars in a Monoprix the other day, and I bought two. I wish I’d consulted your blog first and saved myself the 3.40 euros or whatever, because that milk chocolate and “salt” is a big fat lie. The espelette pepper one, though, is a delight.
