Sipping Chocolate

Today, my friend Cindy and I wrapped up our morning of plant shopping with a flight of sipping chocolate at Cacao.  The trio of flavors were dark chocolate, cinnamon, and spicy.  We both agreed that the cinnamon was our favorite...but that didn't stop us from enjoying the other two samples.

Then we explored the chocolate shop and I asked the clerk about chocolate.  He took me on a tour of his favorite chocolates.  I sampled a chocolate with bark pulp in it and it was fascinating.  I couldn't put my finger on the flavor until he described the last note of flavor as the astringency of walnuts. An accurate assessment.
As we finished sampling chocolate and picked out our purchases, a lovely euphoria washed over me. I splurged on a French chocolate bar and then we headed back home.
