Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Olive Theme Week. The Candy Store's plastic cocktail shaker was filled with realistic-looking green and black olives. The detailed description accompanying these chocolate olives read: "a french confection of almond and hazelnut nougatine covered with white and dark chocolate." These were a bit sweet for something that looked so genuinely savory, but I give them a high grade for clever packaging.
