Ghirardelli’s New Unsweetened Chocolate Chips

by on September 10, 2008 · 12 comments

Baking season is upon us, and I’ve been running across a lot of great new products lately. For instance, Ghirardelli’s new unsweetened (100% cacao) chocolate chips. Along with tasting great, they’ve eliminated the step of chopping up a block of chocolate. Not that chopping chocolate is a pain, I rather enjoy it; but it is nice to be able to dump the unsweetened chocolate chips straight into the melting pot and save some clean-up time. As a bonus, the chips look just like Ghirardelli’s bittersweet chips. If you have a chocolate chip thief in your home, now’s your chance to foil them. Put the unsweetened chocolate chips in a clear plastic zipper bag and lay them directly in the path of the culprit. Fun!

I’ve seen those. What a great trick to catch a thief! ;)

What if the chocolate chip thief is me???? Knowing me, I would do that and then forget and bust myself!

You keep posting these cool new products from local companies (guittard and ghiradelli) that I haven’t seen yet in my stores! These look great, I HATE chopping chocolate. Probably wouldn’t hate it so much if I had a sharper knife.

Yeah, the chocolate chip thief in my house IS me. And uh…. I actually like unsweetened chocolate. I know…my husband says I’m a freak.

Thanks for this, Anna! I’m definitely going to try these. I could only find the Ghirardelli 60% cacao semisweet chips in the store.

Where do you find these? The unsweetened chocolate (Baker’s brand)in the stores is sooooo expensive. I’m talking like $8.00 per pound. And with the holidays rapidly approaching, I go through alot of unsweetened chocolate.

HA! You’re diabolical! If these are close in price to regular block unsweetened chocolate, I’m so there. I don’t mind chopping but I hate cleaning, so if this saves me a dirty dish I’m 100% in favor of it.

Hey, that’s not nice at all. As a kid I would have been very upset.

That would NOT work in my house for 2 reasons…I am the chip snacker and I eat UNsweetened chocolate from time to time (the mark of a true chocoholic)
