Today was another two-chocolate day. It's holiday week. Eating lots of novelty and gift chocolate items this week.

1.) Chocolate #1 - These tiny little Pooh bear figurines were cute. Bizarre observation of the day: The white chocolate figurines (see scanned image of these chocolates, above right) seem a bit blurred, as if they were moving around (trying to escape perhaps?). Perhaps white chocolate vibrates at a higher frequency, or becomes unbalanced once the cocoa solids have been taken out. No, 'fraid not. I'm sure there was a perfectly reasonable scientific optical explanation for their relatively more blurred appearance. Waiting for Dr. Science to weigh in...In the meantime...

2.) Chocolate #2 for the day was a very nice homemade chocolate creme caramel at a friend's house, following a great crab dinner. I admire the cook's creativity - she used three different kinds of chocolate (including a chocolate Santa) for the creme caramel.
