Big chocolate day in San Francisco. I stopped by the Walt Disney Family Museum (they carry a few chocolates in their gift shop); and attended the Chocolate Salon show at Fort Mason, organized by TasteTV and with other sponsors. You'll be hearing more about this event in the next few days. It was a great opportunity to taste many new and interesting chocolates.

Last, but not least, I visited Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream (in the Mission) on the way home. I'd been planning to stop here for awhile. My one requirement: to find parking within 10 minutes of driving around the area. The list of unique flavors on the Humphry Slocombe website looked intriguing - and many of them didn't even involve chocolate. (Surprise.)  This no-chocolate problem can easily be remedied. Hello chocolate sundae made with chevre and strawberry jam ice cream, the next time this flavor is available. Today was my lucky day. I found a space a block away, and I enjoyed both the chocolate + salt caramel and peanut butter curry flavors. Pictured are both kid-sized scoops (in cups). The second photo was an accident, but it did capture today's chocolate and sugar activity level.
