Weight: 1.75 oz. (estimate for total eaten)
Calories: 263 calories total (estimate)
Cost: $6.30 for three pieces above
Purchased from: Sweet Memory Chocolates, in Healdsburg, CA

To celebrate Day #5 of Chocolate and St. Patricks/Green Week, I found three chocolates that I thought best fitted this theme, including one with mint, and one with key lime. The third piece (in the back) is a chocolate "turtle" -- perhaps the biggest stretch. (Turtles are green, and this is a chocolate turtle, right?)

I found these chocolates in Healdsburg, a nice, small Northern California town, with few large chain or franchise retail shops.  This works for me, as I liked talking to family run small businesses, like Sweet Memory Chocolates (shop pictured at right). Thank you for help with making my St. Patrick's/Green chocolate selections.
