Dean and DeLuca's round silver tin filled with Dark Chocolate Orange Peel pieces concluded (Day #7 of) Chocolate and Orange Theme Week.

I thought I tasted a hint of cinnamon along with the orange oil used to flavor these dark gems -- providing a nice tie-in for the holidays, now that we're slouching toward Thanksgiving. Part of me still wants to cling to the false notion that it must still be summer--ish; but I had to don a warm coat this evening, so it's time to move on. Tomorrow I'll be starting to embrace the Fall/Winter holiday season with a warm chocolate Halloween/Day of the Dead hug.
