Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Flower Theme Week, and Day #2 of Chocolate and Orange Theme Week.

Sadly, this is the last day of chocolate and flower week. Roses have dominated this week's line-up. But, today we'll be diversifying with something more tropical—hibiscus.

Watching palm trees sway in Hawaii, Central America (or even Southern California) and enjoying colorful flowers, sounds appealing after days of gray, cold rain. (Following a multi-year drought, rain is good; but I hope our state is banking the extra water this year, so that we can grow flowers in our yards again in the future.) And now, back to chocolate...

Vosges (Chicago, IL) is always coming out with great, new flavor combinations, including chocolates with flowers and fruits. Today's flavorful, but (refreshingly) not too sweet Blood Orange Hibiscus Caramel Marshmallows were covered with 62% cacao dark chocolate.

These chocolates were gluten free, GMO free, and made with fair trade certified ingredients.
