Happy March to all. The Indian Holi celebration of the colors of Spring has been going on this past week. Seeing all the revelers decorated with patches of powdered bright colors, inspired me to seek out some chocolate mixed with flowers this week. I love floral smells and tastes in most food items. So, I was very happy with this Rococo bar. If you're not so inclined, you still may enjoy it. There are small pieces of orange confit embedded in this smooth, dark chocolate bar. The label for these organic bars uses artwork/images from old chocolate mold catalogs.

Last, but not least, thank you to The Candy Store in San Francisco for introducing me to this Rococo bar. As mentioned in a previous post, they specialize in candy, but have a nice selection of chocolates as well in their small shop (pictured).
