Chocolate Show #2

What you missed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday...
I know you'd wanna know - dark bark from Pure Dark...

More big tastes...from E.Guittard chocolate providers to chefs and sold only at the show to the public.
Maison Boissier was there from France...
Loads of bonbons...
Chocolate antiques...
Of course a chocolate fountain from Lily O'brien...
That chocolate tea I was telling you about - one of many...
Delicious chocolate from Italy - De Bondt with things embedded in it...
Straight up plain chocolate from El Rey...
Fair Trade chocolate from Equal Exchange Co-Op - here they explain about chocolate...
I liked this concept - Organic, raw, no sugar, vegan, no gluten, no soy. But chocolate is included!
You got to chat directly with the chocolate makers...
And drink chocolatey things too that made your head spin and see...
Large haunted chocolate houses made by culinary students...
Finally there was a box of the 10 best chocolates in the show - a first I think. Y'all come next year.
Munch..munch...munch...
BONJOUR NOVEMBER!!!

Omg. Yum! I had a lot of chocolate this weekend because of Halloween... Unfortunately it was the inferior mass marketed kind... :(
