Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Berry Theme Week.

I've been working my way through a variety of chocolates from John and Kira's (Philadelphia, PA). Today's Glenn's Strawberry chocolate*, came from the company's "Every Flavor" assortment box.

The strawberries, from Glenn Brendle's Green Meadow Farm (in Gap, Pennsylvania), were blended with Valrhona milk chocolate to make a creamy chocolate ganache (filling) infused with just the right amount of fresh, right-off-the-bush strawberry flavor.

Note: I also sampled John and Kira's Glenn's Raspberry chocolate, and I hope to include this one in a future post.

John and Kiras - Ladybug - Nov. 9, 2013

Chocolate of the Day:

John and Kira's
Chocolate Ladybug - Berry
Weight: .33 oz. (9.4 g.) / 3 oz. (85 g.) in 9-piece box
Calories: 49.5 calories in 1 ladybug
Cost: $29.00 for 1 box of 9 ladybugs
Purchased from: John and Kira's (online order)

Today was Day #1 of Chocolate and Berry Theme Week.

John and Kira's red and black, Signature Raspberry Ladybug was filled with a creamy, berry-flavored Valrhona chocolate ganache. And, John and Kira (Philadelphia, PA) know their chocolate bugs -- they offer a line of dome-shaped, hand-painted chocolate bees and chocolate ladybugs.

Today's berry flavored chocolate ladybug was the third and last flavor in the company's ladybug assortment box. (The two other flavors were garden mint and honey lavender.) Under each ladybug was an interesting ladybug fact, which made it easier to pick up more than one piece.
