No goofy theme weeks today. Tropical Chocolate's Zinfandel chocolate -- made from Paso Robles Zinfandel wine in a 65% dark chocolate ganache -- was flavorful and interesting. I was looking forward to trying the teardrop-shaped Paradise Pear chocolate (pear and goat cheese in dark chocolate), but I think I waited too long. Instead of pear, this second chocolate tasted a bit more like banana. The next time I visit San Luis Obispo in the Central California Coast region, I look forward to trying other Tropical Chocolate flavors.
