Fabulous Item of the Week- Chocolate
Not just any chocolate, but a chocolate that once you taste it, your mouth will find a Recess Peanut Butter Cup offensive. It becomces unthinkable to waste valuable calories on peanut M&Ms. Godiva? Please. Ghirardelli? Might as well eat brown crayons. Sees? Amatuers.
Chuao Chocolates comes in a close second. Chuao is extremely unique in flavor and tastes, HQ is in Encinitas, so they do have the home court advantage. But no amount of wierd chocolate combinations (Prickly pear tahini enrobed in dark chocolate topped with sesame seed décor) can compete of the simple goodness of Lake Chaplain Chocolates. I was introduced to these morsels of heaven by the book Candy Freak (with a title like that, how could one NOT buy the book)
It's been a hard month, you deserve a treat. Splurge on yourself, and buy a five star bar. Happy Halloween.
