2.) Caramel Nut Noire (dark choc) - Very Good

We took the subway to visit Jacques Torres downtown location. We could peek through a window to see production going on, and it also had a sit-down area inside where customers can relax and enjoy beverages, chocolates, chocolate-covered breakfast cereals, ice cream, and other treats. The two individual chocolates (above) were both quite nice. I only had room to try one or two flavors of ice cream or sorbet. The white chocolate ice cream with raspberry and lime and the watermelon sorbet were both very good. My only regret was not being able to sample the chocolate-covered Cheerios (because I can't eat wheat).
