How did I spend my 10th Anniversary of eating a different chocolate every day?
I enjoyed a walk and ate 10 chocolates today. It was also my birthday, so sweets were on the menu.
I started the day with my Chocolate(s) of the Day: two very fine, single origin dark bars from Ecuador, made by Arete Fine Chocolate (Milpitas, CA).
Then I enjoyed tastes of four different ice creams with chocolate, including a cup of chocolate chip ice cream at Baskin Robbins. (The company had sent me a coupon for a free ice cream for my birthday.)
I also enjoyed a Hazelnut truffle and a Cognac truffle from XOX Truffles (San Francisco, CA), and a Party truffle from Z. Cioccolato (San Francisco, CA).
Last but not least, I enjoyed a Gray Sea Salt Agave Caramel (in Milk Chocolate) from Amella Caramels (not pictured here).
The gluten-free caramels were part of a gift from Elana Turchon and Joy Lowrie at SweetE Organic (Mill Valley, CA) to celebrate Chocolate Banquet's 10-year anniversary.
The caramels were cleverly tucked into a trophy with a gold, star-shaped sparkler.
Thank you to all who helped celebrate this occasion!
