Cost: $18.80 for total 1-lb. box

These dark chocolate-covered hazelnut pieces were very nice. The fairly large box meant I could try these chocolates a few different ways -- plain, and then paired with various other food and drink items. For example, these went well with a little bit of homemade dried apricot pineapple jam. Thank you again to Nicky at Govatos, who helped ensure these chocolates made it out 3,000 miles to California. And yes, they did arrive in fine shape.

Chocolate countdown: 9 more days until I eat my 1,000th different chocolate.
