Once again I combed through odd-holiday themed information from Holiday Insights ( to help select a new chocolate item. For example, today (March 25) is Pecan Day, not to be confused with National Pecan Day (in April). I had squirreled away this Robicheaux's pecan turtle in my chocolate vault, for just such an occasion. A variant of this pecan turtle, eaten last year, was topped with a chocsimile (chocolate replica/facsimile) of the State of Mississippi. (Robicheaux's is in Poplarville, MS.)

Today's second chocolate of the day, was an unplanned addition in the evening. Hungry, and lacking willpower, I opened a package of Marich Chocolate Toffee Almonds. Sadly, the only image I can show is part of an empty box.
