ChocolateBet: October 9, 2006

Chocolate of the Day:

It's getting closer to Halloween...Or maybe they just keep moving up the date, marketing all the Halloween stuff earlier each year. It must be that time of year. How do I know? More inevitable than red and yellow colored leaves is the return of the pumpkin latte at Starbucks coffee houses, and other pumpkin-related treats.

Today, I visited the Godiva chocolate store at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, CA. Always a good bet for chocolate. I'd, for some odd reason, never made it to this store. I had a Pumpkin Truffle. It was - OK. I guess my expectations were higher, given that I usually really enjoy almost anything from Godiva.

A few years ago, I was attending an animation festival in Ottawa, Ontario (Canada), and the weather had turned chilly (at least for someone who had flown up from California in September when it was still piping hot), and I stopped into a mall by the river there, in between running to different movie venues in town. I was revived by two different Godiva chocolate bars. They were some of the best "commercial candy bars" I'd ever tasted on that brisk fall day.
