This tall dark shapely box sits next to my computer and is a wonderful encourager during late nights of working…

Doing what you do at work, I made my way to a colleague’s desk to discuss things… from about 8 paces out I noticed an orange bar sitting on her desk. Hmmm…(eyebrow raised), approaching closer I discover it was another Ghirardelli…
Yes it is orange too! Dark orange… yum. I picked it up and checked it out more while ‘talking shop’ but I was a little distracted. She kindly offered for me to have some, but not wanting to be rude and open the packaging I politely declined and moved on. Another colleague, a little more assertive, upon hearing our conversation heads over to her desk and proceeds to rip through the packaging and in on the bar! It’s a lot easier when someone breaks the ice, so I shyly make my way back to take a piece (she urged me to take more, saying she wouldn’t finish it).
OH MY. It’s amazing.. the rich creamy dark cocoa melts in your mouth and the sweet orange flavoured filling oozes out. I stopped mid way back to my desk and go back for a second piece!
100 days to go!!*
Ironically, there’s no specific chocolate to write about today. Have I been chocolate’d out? I think not. There has been chocolate consumption today, several kinds in fact, but I tend to stick with my favourites a lot, why waste precious time on sub-standard stuff? Exactly. Perhaps a good way to celebrate this day is to share my top 5 chocolates… oh this is going to be hard. Hmmm…
In no particular order:
1. Cadbury’s Flake (from the UK, of course)
2. Whittaker’s Dark Orange (NZ)
(wow, this is harder than I thought)
3. Ah Trader Joe’s Espresso Pillows (USA)
4. How could I forget these – Lindt Lindor Balls! (origin Switzerland)
5. And lastly, Green & Black’s Maya Gold (UK)
Surprisingly or not, all of these chocolates were mentioned early on in this venture, and have featured again several times over these past 256 days. They definitely are worth it. If you haven’t tried them all yet, you must. I insist!
*As I finish writing this, I only just realised it’s actually 110 days to go… oh well not rewriting this post.
