It's no suprise to those of us who live in the home city of Guittard that a swanky SoCal chocolate (pardon me, chocolat) company would be using its products. Eclipse knows its business. It knows Guittard produces a smooth confection that gets back to the roots of chocolate as candy and not wine. That means it serves as an excellent base for creative flavor combinations like the one I tried, 55% dark with peanut butter toffee. The toffee is salty rather than sweet, so at times this bar tastes like chocolate-covered pretzel, but after awhile a low note of savory peanut butter comes through (though it may not satisfy those who are used to the Reese's flavor). Eclipse cleverly packages its 3 oz bars as long and thin, so you feel you're getting a bigger amount, but at no time does this chocolate get tiring. The company also makes cupcakes at its San Diego cafe, as well as some even more fascinating bars I can't wait to try, like salty dulce de leche and gingerbread crumb. A full-size bar costs six bucks on the website ( I remember it being seven at BiRite, but I may be maligning them unfairly) or the minis are 3 (2.50 locally).
