Chocolate



There are no words for how amazing each of these chocolates taste. You need to try them yourself to understand their perfection. Mr. F and I found the Cadeaux chocolates at our favorite wine shop in Ballard, Portalis. A wonderful and sweet coworker gave me the Theo's chocolates for Valentine's. The vanilla caramel dipped in bittersweet with fleur de sel by Cadeaux Chocolates is my husband's favorite, but I adore the Rose Salted Caramel by Theo's Chocolates. The Cadeaux chocolate carmel was a delicate balance of salty carmel and chocolate. The Rose salted carmel by Theo's was instantly salted carmel followed by an insurgence of rose water. Both chocolates make me want to try more from these chocolatiers!  
Have you ever been on a chocolate factory tour? Theo's chocolates has PUBLIC TOURS DAILY [Monday - Friday at 2pm & 4pm. Saturday & Sunday at 10am, noon, 2pm and 4pm. Tours are $6 per person, ages 1 and older.] 


Once upon a time I visited the Baci chocolate factory in Perguia, Italy. The factory is actually called "Stabilimento (chocolate factory) Nestl", because Nestle purchased Perugina some years ago. One of the first things you notice is amazing smell of chocolate permeating the air. When you walk into the building, on the reception/sales desk, sits a silver tray loaded with Baci and other Perugina candy. It's also all you can eat!!!
