Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Christmas-is-Coming Theme Week.

A tiny sled box with 8 tiny (Tiddly) 70% dark chocolate reindeer from Hotel Chocolat (London, England) landed on my plate today. Unfortunately for them, only 4 survived the encounter.

Not to get too gruesome, but bites of the first reindeer produced quite a hard snap. I suspect in cold winter mornings (when chocolate is firmest) this snap may produce a mild ringing of sleigh bells in your head, but by the time I'd eaten the last one of the four unfortunates in the afternoon, the warmer weather had softened the snap a bit.

Examples of 1.) Well-fed, friendly 70% dark reindeer and 2.) Reindeer dreading what comes next as a hand reaches out, at right.
