Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Animal Theme Week. It's only fair to include some sea mammals and creatures in this animal themed week. So, today's two chocolates were solid dark and milk chocsimiles (chocolate facsimiles) of whales, made by Maui Specialty Chocolates, based in Kahului (Maui), Hawaii.

Those that prefer their chocolate whales unadorned, read no further. Regarding chocolate whale pairings and nuts: the dark chocolate whale went well with a few walnuts roasted with cinnamon, and the milk chocolate whale paired nicely roasted, unsalted almonds. Adding just a few grains of hickory-smoked sea salt to these almonds would have worked too.
