Phew! That’s a mouthful, huh?

I can’t think of a single food item I discovered through the “blog world” that let me down. Until I bought sunflower seed butter.

It was toted as another amazing “butter” option. Put it on oatmeal, slather it on some bread, enjoy it smeared on a banana. People raved about this stuff! About 4 months ago, I finally remembered to pick some up when I was at Trader Joe’s. I got home, super excited to try it out and immediately opened the jar. I spread it on some cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread and proceeded to gag.

Really? People actually like this? Eww.

It just tastes “seedy” in a gross aftertaste kind of way to me.

So, the jar went into the cabinet where it sat for the next 3 months while I tried to figure out a way to finish it without cringing at each bite. Perfectly good food does not get thrown out in these parts.

Enter the lovely people at Ghirardelli who sent me some chocolates to sample as part of the Foodbuzz tastemakers program.

Chocolate is good. Peanut butter + chocolate is even better. Omg, I wonder if sunflower seed butter + chocolate would work?

Um, of course it would. Anything with chocolate works.

The inspiration for the salt was actually the sea salt soiree combination from Ghirardelli. Have you tasted that chocolate bar? If not, go out immediately and buy one. Your mouth will thank you.

Or, anything dip really. Marshmallows taste especially good dipped in this. That’s pure speculation of course, I wouldn’t know that first hand or anything.

    Ooh, yummy! Love healthy dips that are better than their naughty counterparts! I have a dip similar to this, only it’s a healthy caramel dip.
    Now I’m giddy to try the chocolate one sometime!
