Chocolate, Chocolate, Oh MY!!!



I received a huge box of chocolate in the mail! I knew it was coming. The anticipation was building over the last 2 weeks. I was told a box of chocolate was coming my way! At last, it had arrived! I ran down to the post office and picked it up because the address was incorrect! I was able to stop this large package of goodies from going back to the sender! I love chocolate! I will do anything for chocolate!( well, just about anyway) I loaded it in my car and decided I would look in the box when I got it back home. I was wondering what was in this huge box! My kids are always trying to guess what is in the wrapped boxes under the tree at Christmas. I was imagining what goodies could be in this box. Yes, I shook it gently, I couldn’t resist! I arrived home, ran into the house and used my car key to get through the tape. You would think I was desperate to get this box open! Inside my long awaited chocolate box were 5 varieties! There were some of my absolute favorite kinds! I LOVE dark chocolate especially when it is mixed with sea salt, caramel, pomegranate, and acai! As I look at this box, I realize I am supposed to only eat 1 per day! This is going to require lots of restraint! My logic tells me that since I am behind on days due to the mix up in the mail, I could eat more than 1 today, so….I played catch up and ate 3! That probably wasn’t very mindful of me but I was very aware of each delicious dark chocolate square that entered my mouth. It started with the reading of the label. Dark chocolate sea salt caramel! I wonder if that is as good as the caramel squares I ate from the grocery store last week?  The Ghiradelli square appeared super smooth on the outside. Where was the salt? I am used to seeing the salt on the outside of the chocolate. I wonder if there is going to be course salt on the inside of this very thin piece of chocolate?  As I bit into it, the caramel oozed out and I detected the slightly course salt. It was the most delicious combination of ingredients! The flavor was an explosion in my mouth! This is going to be a great month for chocolate! I consider February to be the sweetest month of the year! I can’t wait to eat more tomorrow!
