Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Transportation Theme Week.

Happy Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month (May). And, National Ride (your motorcycle) to Work Day is just around the corner (June 17).

In honor of these days, it was time to unwrap the box with the pretty green bow from Mackenzies Chocolates (a family-run shop in Santa Cruz, CA) -- so I could take a bite of their dark chocolate motorcycle chocsimile (chocolate facsimile).

This medium-sized (5 x 2.5 inch) replica looked so beautifully detailed and authentic, I hesitated ruining it. But, all things chocolate come to an end, generally sooner rather than later. Like many molded confections, the chocolate base was good, but not super high-end, single origin chocolate. I did enjoy the (less sweet) dark chocolate a bit more than the the milk chocolate items.
