And today's chocolates conclude (Day #7 of) Chocolate and Tree Theme Week. I tried the (Maison Bouche) rose marzipan pine cones earlier in the week, and today I noticed that there was a bergamot flavor as well. The rose cones win by a nose. I also enjoyed the Teuscher solid dark chocolate log.

Made with Nestle Butterfinger pieces, these sticks (Stixx actually) sort of fit with Day #6 of Chocolate and Tree Theme Week.

While the Stixx were fine, I had hoped to find a chocsimile of the Tree mascot from Stanford University. (I live a few miles from Stanford.) The tree is rather infamous; however, the closest thing I could find in stores was a t-shirt proclaiming "Fear the Tree" and a tree golf club cover. Ah well.
