Once upon a time there was a small corner of the internet carved out just to tell tales of chocolatey goodness. A corner that was lovingly nurtured with great sacrifices of copious amounts of chocolate consumption.
Then it went silent. Disappeared.
So many excuses ... life got busy, was drowning in chocolate, dog ate my homework ...
But the truth is there are still like 100 people a day that stop by to visit little 'ol Blog Chocolate despite not being updated in more than a year.
Time to fix that. Partly because I feel terribly guilty about the neglect but also because I made a chocolate discovery that was worth sharing while on vacation last week.
My new boyfriend's name is Roger.
My son and I spent a week in the ever charming Victoria, British Columbia and a few steps from our hotel was Roger's Chocolates. Lovingly prepared chocolate with the sweetest staff on the planet, we visited it every day. We tried all of the truffles and the creams and ... well we tried everything.
My favs? The salted carmel chocolate and the winter apple caramel truffle. They apparently rock the caramel.
Completely worth coming out of hibernation for. Thanks Roger!
