Eating three of these little, very sweet, thin mints marked the end (Day #7) of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week, and also served as Day #1 of Chocolate and Orange Theme Week. Seeing different foil-wrapped round chocolates molded in the shape of citrus fruit (just knock them on on a hard surface to separate the partially fused orange segments), got me interested in comparing some of them.
Note to those who get bored with theme weeks, not to worry; I will take a break from thematically-linked chocolates soon, I think. Can I help it if there are so many different chocolates out there?
