Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate in the U.S. I'm very thankful for family, friends—and another day with new chocolates to try.

Maple Pecan Bar
Today's gluten-free Maple Pecan 70% dark bar from Taza Chocolate (Somerville, MA) was made from organic, direct trade, stone-ground chocolate and it contained maple (organic maple sugar and natural maple flavor) and roasted pecan nut pieces. (The company is also offering Cranberry Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread and Peppermint Stick bars this holiday season, in addition to its eggnog chocolate disc which is quite good as hot drinking chocolate.)

Chocolate Turkey
I also enjoyed a dark chocolate place-setting turkey and a maple leaf-shaped (gold foil-wrapped) Dark Chocolate 57% Maple Caramel from Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, Vermont).

I'll save the chocolate-covered cranberries for the next few days...I couldn't eat another thing right now.
