My mother can read my future thoughts. How else can I explain the fact that the day after I wrote about having an uncharacteristic craving for a box of chocolates, these show up on my doorstep? She ordered them the week before. See, moms really do know best.
I know Valentine’s Day is kind of the box-of-chocolate holiday, but because of my apathetic opinion of chocolate, I don’t usually receive any. I’m really glad I did this year. I’m also really glad they were from Vosges Haut-Chocolat, a Chicago-based chocolatier. Check out these flavors for the exotic truffle collection.
The chocolates came with instructions on how to eat a truffle. Fun fact: I once gave a 45 minute presentation on how to eat chocolate for one of my classes in high school, complete with a taste testing demonstration. Chocolate is serious business and clearly worthy of academic study.
I know some people don’t like Valentine’s Day (“it’s a manufactured Hallmark holiday”), but I don’t see what’s wrong with a special day devoted to showing people how much you love them. Especially when that love comes in the form of chocolate when you really need some.
What’s your favorite chocolate company?
