There was no crazy chocolate theme week going on today. Instead I enjoyed an assortment of filled chocolates, purchased earlier from Michael Mischer Chocolates, located in Oakland, CA.
All these individual pieces were good. However, I do enjoy lavender; and so, no surprise, my favorite chocolate was the Lavender and Honey chocolate (log shape with purple dot), followed by the Lilikoi -- a small dome-shaped chocolate, decorated with a yellow brushstroke. I liked the butterscotch-like caramelized filling with a hint of passion fruit.
I was going to save chocolates #3 - #5 for tomorrow, but they served as my lunch instead. In keeping with my plan to replace all normal meals with chocolate today, I later attended an evening chocolate tasting (dinner) at Fog City News in San Francisco. Thank you to Fog City for the tasting and for carrying a wide variety of interesting chocolates.
