I enjoy hunting for chocolates whenever I travel. What I find may be quite everyday to locals, but exotic to me. Today after touring the Bellingrath Gardens in Alabama, I enjoyed a Blue Bell Great Divide frozen dessert bar (chocolate and vanilla), in the company of three other women, from Texas, who were on the house and garden tour. Blue Bell is a Texas company, and it was once difficult to find Blue Bell ice cream and dessert products outside of Texas.
Later in the day, I stopped at a pecan stand to try some boiled peanuts. They did not have any chocolate and nut products there, but we had fun discussing what chocolate covered boiled peanuts might look like.
Note: Due to travel this month, the chocolate eating will continue, but posts and photos may be delayed.
