Today was the first Day of Chocolate and Nuts Week, with some rice thrown in for good measure.

I had to buy the Happy Zoo (the first of two chocolates listed above). The cute animal faces printed on the individually-wrapped chocolates made me do it. The chocolate inside was nothing to write home about, but the concept and the animals were fun.

Hoi An (city in Central Vietnam) was bustling with activity. I dodged motor scooters and sidewalk vendors to get to the local Mini Mart today to check out local chocolates in Hoi An; so, feeling grateful to have survived the trip, I picked up a few extra chocolate items to celebrate.

The second chocolate, a MaxCrisp "Milk Choco" bar, contained bits of almond, and rice. It wasn't bad.

I believe both the Happy Zoo and the MaxCrisp bar may have come from Malaysia. (It was difficult to tell from the packaging.)
