I was fighting off a cold today. Maybe, I thought, these Ghost Chile Salted Caramels in dark chocolate from Theo Chocolate (Seattle, WA) will help? These Organic, Fair Trade chocolates were a tasty blend of sweet and savory.

Today was Day #8 of Chocolate and Caramel Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate and Spicy Chili/Pepper Theme Week.

Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Caramel Theme Week. I bought this bright chartreuse foil-wrapped, chocolate flower from Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, Vermont), separately, some time ago. So, there was no labeling information I was able to consult that would have been part of the original, larger bag or package. Fortunately, this chocsimile of a flower did turn out to be a Milk Chocolate Caramel -- perfect for this theme week.
