Welcome to Day #2 of D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K Theme Week.
Yes, that's right; I'm featuring chocolates + items that start with the letters D, E, F, G, H, I, J and/or K this week.
Yesterday ("D" for Dark chocolate) was fun. And, for today ("E") I struggled to find a chocolate elephant, but was unsuccessful. Fortunately, I found a surprise "e" item at last weekend's Fancy Food Show in San Francisco--Milk Chocolate Emoticons.
Emoticons are popular, digital "faces" with simple cartoon expressions used to communicate emotion (see also emojis) and these expressions were wrapped around small, solid, milk chocolate balls.
Individually wrapped in yellow foil, these Emoticons from The Madelaine Chocolate Company (Rockaway Beach, NY) came in several expressions: happy face, surprised face, in love face, and so on.
Happily, these milk chocolates tasted better than I expected. Novelty and seasonal chocolates in the past have not always been known for the high-quality chocolate.
