Guittard gourmet syrups


sorry this is not a holiday-appropriate BBQ sauce or such*

On a bottle of fudge topping, the First Ingredient should be “chocolate”. Good luck finding that. (Scharffen Berger’s is one of the few but it’s $9.95 a bottle… at Central Market, fyi.) Mosta the crappy choc syrups start w/ “fructose,” and that’s true of Guittard, too. But Guittard is also a superior chocolatier (used by pastry chefs, up there with Callebaut & Valhrona), and to give fructose corn syrup its due, it does facilitate pouring, into, say, a coffee beverage. Guittard is a small, slightly wiggy Calif company, and its hotly-desired syrups hadn’t been available to Me-The-Consumer until, well practically just now. SuperTarget has them in milk choc and caramel, in animal-printy squeez bottles; no sign of the dark choc, but maybe my SuperT was just out.

*but hey, some people eat ice cream on Memorial Day, so there.

OK, all of us like something sweet now and then, but don't you think you're overdoing it? Kit-Kats, wedding cakes, now chocolate syrup.

Does anyone know where you can buy cured Spanish chorizo? Not the sloppy Mexican kind.
