Today is Super Bowl Sunday in the U.S. -- a hugely popular football game between two league champion teams. In my little microscopically-focused chocolate world, it was Day #2 of Chocolate and Raspberry Theme Week.  Today's chocolate choice was my attempt to fuse these two events: a smooth, raspberry flavored chocolate truffle from Harry and David. The company's Fruit Bowl assortment package contained three different, individually-wrapped truffle flavors (cherry, orange and raspberry) -- making it a Super Fruit Bowl perhaps? OK, I agree, it's a stretch. But the chocolate truffles should appeal to both teams.
