Chocolate spread, WITHOUT hazelnut
I have a Turkish friend who grew up eating plain chocolate spread without hazelnuts. She remembers it was called Choco Creme (sp?) and is hankering for some. Has anyone seen any for sale locally? Whenever I ask for chocolate spread, I'm always directed towards the Nutella.
There is an Israeli version called Shachar which I remember fondly from my childhood. Sometimes you can find it in the kosher section of the grocery store...actually, I'm pretty sure I saw some of a different brand in the Safeway on Wisconsin Avenue in upper Georgetown. But it was definitely just chocolate. Check the kosher food section.
That Safeway is actually a surprisingly good source of random international foods.
By the way, I saw that they're selling this at Aioli on P Street around Dupont Circle. I think a jar was $4.99
