Happy Earth Day, April 22, to all in the U.S. These Earth Ball chocolates seemed like the right choice to celebrate this occasion.


Today, I also enjoyed an assortment of milk and dark chocolates from The Chocolate Tree, in Beaufort, South Carolina. This box included milk and dark chocolate-covered brazil nuts; milk chocolate coconut; milk and dark chocolate-covered peanut clusters; milk chocolate peanut butter; and a milk chocolate toffee crunch. Also included in this half-pound assortment box were milk and dark chocolate sand dollars, chocolates with raisins, and a few others. I ate about 4 oz. (of the 8 oz. box), about 610 calories worth. We had a hot spell this week - so it was necessary to eat some of these chocolates before they melted. (Yep, that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.)

I was able to order this assortment box over the phone. Thanks to the Chocolate Tree for putting this order together. It's great to have tried some chocolates from South Carolina.
