Today, I continued my homage to the chocolate egg and spring, by picking up a small package of Rabbits and Tiny Eggs, and other chocolates, from The Oakland Chocolate Company.

Earlier this week, I sampled eggs from Hotel Chocolat -- a company that has access to a plantation in the Caribbean. The Oakland Chocolate Company has relationships with farmers in Jamaica, and their chocolates are made with Jamaican Origin cacao -- resulting in a rich, distinctive taste, which made these little rabbits and eggs far superior to most mass market, molded chocolates.

Thank you to Nancy Nadel, the woman behind these handmade artisan chocolates, for staying open a few minutes late, while I battled freeway traffic on my way to pick up this chocolate order. Then,  I needed to drive back to the other side of the Bay. Once back to my car, "quick as a bunny" these chocolates were photographed, and gone.
