Today is Day #4 of Chocolate and Something Different Theme Week -- a week of seven different, unique themes. Today I focused on a favorite combination of...well, almost no one it turns out. Chocolate and Spiders. Previous attempts to try chocolate covered (real) insects met with limited success, so, in this case, the spider was a pet tarantula made of gummi candy.

In the photo to the right, you can see the spider demonstrating good taste as it headed for the chocolate fondue, made from a World Market milk chocolate bar. However, for its trouble, it had the tips of its two front legs bitten off. Poor spider.
