Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Cereal/Grains Theme Week. It was also Valentines Day, a day traditionally celebrated in the U.S. with candy hearts, flowers, and c-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e-s.

I was going to enjoy a little bowl of Enjoy Life gluten free, very berry granola (with fresh strawberries, raspberries) with some kind of chocolate milk. But, I decided replace the chocolate milk with a little red box of dark chocolate raspberry bonbons instead from Gateau et Ganache (Palo Alto, CA).  Decorated across the top with little pink hearts, these oval-shaped chocolates were at first bite sweeter than I expected, followed by a very authentic, slightly tart, right-out-of-the-garden-raspberry + maybe the slightest hint of Framboise liqueur taste. I could have been imagining this last part. Happy V'day all.
