CHOCOLATE! I love chocolate! We attended the Northwest Chocolate Festival and had a great time. We ate a cacao bean, crunchy, pithy, and bitter. I think it is amazing someone once ate one and thought something could be made of it. We tasted hickory smoked chocolate chips and decided they were not a favorite. My husband’s favorite were the chocolates made by Hot Chocolat, habanero caramel in dark chocolate, cayenne caramel in dark chocolate, and firehouse chili in dark chocolate. My favorites are always truffles. Now we are in Chicago, some people clothes shop in Chicago, not me. I am enjoying chocolate shopping. Fannie May, Vosges, Hershey’s, Ghirardelli…I am in heaven. When I get home, I think I might be making some truffles, and getting on the elliptical!
