Stuff We Like #3
Hi Everyone. Toni Griffin here. *Waves* I'm going to take a leaf out of Freddy MacKay's book and post about food. I mean it is Freddy's fault in the first place that I even know what these delectable little morsels are. Fannie May's Mint Meltaways. Oh My God. These squares of chocalatey minty goodness are too die for.
As many of you know I just recently got back from a trip to Chicago. Fannie May was a must stop while I was there. The stores may have been visited more than once. I acknowledge nothing. Just the scent as you walk into that shop was like opening up that little box again for the first time. Chocolate and mint and all things yummy.
I was nice and brought a couple of boxes home, one for me, one for my mum and another for a work friend of mine. By the time my colleague left work there were only 4 meltaways left in the box. Within a half hour of her opening them she was on the internet trying to see if there was any way to get them shipped here from the US.

I love chocolate so if anything new comes out in the shops I have to try it. Anyway my mum found a bag of Aero chocolate Bubbles (little balls of chocolate) in Orange flavour loved the chocolate ones but wasn't to sure but I tried them and wow they are so delicious I couldn't stop eating them. Now I can't find them anywhere!! If anybody in the UK sees them I want them!!!

Chocolate is always a favourite! I managed to savour the truffles I got on our trip to Fannie May's and while those are an occasional treat, my favourite chocolate is Cadbury Twirl bars that I can only get at an import shop called The British Pantry.

Obviously I'm not entering the contest, lol - but oh, that Fannie Mae store. I could have grazed there all day.

Great story. I'm not a big mint fan, but maybe I'll have to give the Fannie May meltaways. :-)

My favorite chocolate is Cadbury Milk Chocolate. It is so creamy and delicious without being too rich. It is never too sweet and that makes all the difference for me. I normally only get it twice a year otherwise I would probably die of chocolate overload.
