chock full o’ something

My buddy Megan just got back from a vacation to London, Italy, and Croatia (which looks really gorgeous), and she was kind enough to bring me this:

Orla Kiely Chocolates! They are made by Irish chocolatier Butlers Chocolates. Oh, there are some delectable flavors in there, including Salt, Double Chocolate, and Earl Grey. Sadly, though, the chocolates did not travel particularly well, and they were all melted and discolored and sad. I am going to eat them anyway, though!

  1. You get chocolates and what do I get? NOTHING.

    I got chocolates like that from belgium once. They were all deformed and weird-looking but still delicious! I hope yours are still good.

    of course you are!! :) did i tell you recently my parents found a UPS package I sent them stuck inside a bench on their porch? instead of sticking it in the door like normal, there must’ve been a substitute UPS guy (one day SIX MONTHS AGO) who stuck it in there and they just found it six months later. my dad said the chocolate in it was melted into all one big piece…but he ate it anyway. :)

    Congrats on the marathon and go ahead and eat those yummy chocs no matter what they look like (remember chocolate truffles are named after the unsightly but delicious earthy kind for a reason). Get the oven fired up for a batch of those pink cookies before you get busy on your next big adventure!

    Ha! Good for you for telling us you plan to eat the candy anyway…Many people wouldn’t share that fact. I’m so glad you did!!!!

    Too bad it melted. The packaging is great though.
