This morning I traveled to Spain -- well at least I pretended to -- for Day #6 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week. This Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts bar hails from Blanxart, based in Barcelona, Spain.

I hope to travel to Barcelona some day. It certainly sounds like an interesting food and chocolate city. Blanxart got its start there in 1954. At that time, the company's distinctive mark and logotype were developed based on an Arts and Professions image in the Barcelona History Museum --  chosen in part because it reflected the company’s philosophy of carefully crafting chocolates.
