We’re starting with our Month of Chocolate
I’ve been wondering what to say about chocolate that I haven’t already voiced. I say it proud on all my social media that I’m a lover of chocolate, but while I was taking photos in the grocery store of all the Valentine candy coming out, I remembered something most people don’t know about me.
Before I had kids, I was the Assistant Buyer of Candy for a department store in New York and New Jersey named Sterns. It’s no longer in existence, but it used to be a part of the same company that owns Macy’s.
I’ll always remember the excitement of getting in a new shipment and going out to the stores to help merchandise the goodies. That’s where this Southern girl learned what Panettone was, because growing up in the South, I’d never seen it before. This is also where I discovered my love of Lindt truffles. I’ve since discovered that one of my favorite deserts is the Tuxedo Mouse Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.
Another fact about me. I rarely drink hot chocolate. If I’m going to splurge, I prefer to eat my calories. 😉
What is you favorite chocolate?
