Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Umami or Bacon Theme Week.

Santa Cruz is a college town at the beach; and it's also a fun place to look for chocolates. I discovered a new cupcake place there today (more on Buttercup Cakes later), while walking to Marini's Candies (downtown Santa Cruz, CA). Marini's carried several chocolate and bacon offerings that were a good fit for this week's theme.

Before enjoying my single scoop of Marini's own "Vegan's Nightmare" ice cream in a cup, I ate a nice savory (umami) and healthy vegetable rice paper wrap from a nearby kiosk. (Seven years ago, I debated whether to start a site about vegetables/salads or chocolate. I chose chocolate, but, I still love fresh greens.)

Then it was time to shovel into my chilly little goldmine of fresh tasting, maple flavored ice cream with small pieces of chocolate covered bacon. It was good.
