Today´s dark bar was "Hecho en Mexico" (made in Mexico), and it was quite good.

Also, today I celebrated eating a different chocolate every day for the past four years. I still feel grateful that I'm able to incorporate chocolate into my life and travels. A big thank you to all the members of El SeƱor Ronaldo's photography group who helped celebrate this occasion on the road -- to Matt and Neeley for contributing a bottle of BV Creme de Cacao (from Spain), and to Bill for the rum. After some research, it was determined that both these beverages go well with chocolates.

Chocolate of the Day:
1 bonbon

Bombones con Anejo Rum
Good Plus
Weight: .5 oz., or 14 grams (estimate)
Calories: 75 calories (estimate)
Cost  .40 (estimate for 1 piece)

The heat was such that this poor Guama chocolate truffle (with aged rum) almost suffered a meltdown between the time it left its refrigerated case and before being plunged back into an air conditioned dining environment down the street. Not to worry; it would have been fine melted over ice cream as well. Later in the evening the truffle insisted I pose it with some rum before being eaten. That you to Sharon for indulging its last wish.
