Yet another food search

From time to time I'll post about a food product that I like that has gone missing. This time it's Hershey's Raspberry Chocolate chips. These aren't anything that I ever would have bought--I don't even like Hershey's chocolate--except a neighbor made some cookies for me that included these chips, and I was hooked on the recipe. Since only one store locally stocked them, I bought several packages for convenience. I used the last package last year.

So I started looking for them in preparation for my Christmas cookie making, only to discover that Hershey apparently no longer makes them, and hasn't for a couple of years.

So, I think what I'm going to try to do is find a dark chocolate raspberry candy bar that I could "chip." Any suggestions?

I buy an organic dark chocolate mint bar at WalMart; the maker escapes me right now, but it's in the regular candy aisle, by the specialty bars. I believe there is also a raspberry bar in that section. I've never bought it, so I can't, again, name the maker, but you could try there. Unless DeBrand's makes one...I'll bet you'll be there this week!

I think the candy bar that Melody is talking about is Orange and Black's. Their dark chocolate bar is very good and so is the mint. I believe they do make a chocolate raspberry. If it is like the others it would "chip" very well for you and be better than the Hershey's variety.

Spending the kind of cash DeBrand's requires, just to put in a cookie, is probably not a good idea. :) I'll have to check Walmart. (I need to go there to get something for the church anyway.)This may end up being a blessing. The chocolate will doubtless be better, making the cookies even more yummy.

Melanie is close. It's Green and Black's. :)

Hmmmm - I'd chop dried cranberries and pair them with chopped candied orange peel and a REALLY dark, good-quality chocolate chip.

Add some fine nuts, and voila! Chocolate Chip Cookies for Grown Ups.
