When I started eating a different chocolate every day, I never dreamed there would still be this many new chocolates to eat more than three and a half years later -- much less dozens of possible theme weeks and items to combine with chocolate. Life is full of the unexpected. Today marks the start of yet another theme week. Today is Day #1 of Chocolate and Seed/Nut Butter and Fruit Theme Week.
This week, I'm returning to a wonderful 9-piece box of Ococoa chocolate cups that combine a range of nut, seed, and dried fruit ingredients. I tried two of these cups today. The Sesame Fig cup had a piece of fig embedded in the middle, and the Sunflower Honey cup, with a bee design stenciled across the top, blended tasty sunflower seed butter and honey flavors. (One drop of aged balsamic vinegar or port would probably mesh well with chocolate and fig. Good excuse for a chocolate and fig theme week later this year.)
