Well, then . . . I must be chocolate!

A man is what he thinks about all day long. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm sure Emerson had something loftier in mind when he wrote this, but the main thing on my mind today has been chocolate! Do you ever have those days?

Did you know that many cities now have chocolate tours? What a fun way to spend an afternoon or evening? Here is a sampler of tours, but, there is a caveat . . . you'll need a chocolate fix after seeing these sites: Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and maybe a city or town near you. Or, what a great idea for a new business; you could start a chocolate tour in your hometown!

And here's an amazing concept - a Chocolate Spa! The Spa at Hotel Hershey offers a full range of chocolate treatments - how great would you feel after a Chocolate Sugar Scrub or a Whipped Cocoa Bath? Or, how about combining two great passions - jewelry and chocolate? That's right, Wendy Mahr has created chocolate jewelry. Wow!

According to their website, the jewelry can be worn several times and then eaten. You can even send the non-chocolate parts back to have a permanent piece of jewelry created. This is such a wonderful idea that I know you'll want to see the earrings, too.

Hope you enjoyed this little chocolate chat - I'm off to find that last, leftover Godiva Santa . . .


  1. That chocolate jewelry looks downright decadent. The only chocolate tour with which I was familiar is the Ghirardeli tour in San Francisco (back in the old country).

  2. My husband and I have taken the Ghiradeli tour - makes my mouth water just thinking about it! I'd love to see the chocolate jewelry 'in person' - I love the earrings, but wonder if they're heavy?

  3. Love your blog! The earrings are not heavy at all and smell delicious!

    Also, don't forget to buy some 1/2 price heart shaped chocolates at the store today! Day after Valentine's you know!

    Have a good week!
