I think chocolate and travel go well together, which is why I liked the story behind Brandini Toffee.

Apparently, Leah Post and Brandon ("Brandini") Weimer started selling toffee to help finance a student trip to Italy. Based in La Quinta, CA, the company produces these small square toffee, or Brandini, Bites (which must be difficult to cut into these precise little pieces), and other toffee products.

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Toffee Theme Week.
