Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week. This piece -- from the Ethel M (also known as the Mars Retail Group) store and cactus garden near Las Vegas, NV -- was a classic take on dark chocolate with a sweet, shredded coconut filling.
On a recent visit to the Ethel M facility in Henderson, Nevada, we took the short factory tour available there. Outside the Ethel M building in the cactus garden were inflatable holiday figures. Don't get too close to those cactus spikes Mr. and Ms. M&M!
