Chocolate of the Day:

1.) Almond Amaretto - Good +
2.) Spumoni - Very Good
Weight: .4 oz. (11.3 g.) (estimate) / 9 oz. (252 g.) total box of 18 pieces
Calories: 58 calories (estimate) for 1/2 of 2 pieces
Cost: $34.00 box of 18 pcs. (+ any S&H)
Purchased from: fleurir hand grown chocolates via foodzie

Today's two chocolates hailed from fleurir, in Washington, D.C. I worked my way through this 18-piece assortment box until I reached these two flavors: 1.) Almond Amaretto (containing an almond ganache with amaretto, topped with marzipan); and 2.) Spumoni (cherry ganache with a layer of pistachio marzipan). Both were good, but the Spumoni was more fun. Also, I hadn't tasted pistachio marzipan before. It paired well with the tart cherry and chocolate flavors, bundled into this same little sweet package.

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Almond Marzipan Theme Week.
