It’s so silly when advertisers and retailers claim there is a chocolate season. Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter. Sure, all mark the times of year we see chocolate sales soar, but let’s be honest, chocolate is seasonless, as in, appropriate for all seasons. Any occasion can be celebrated with chocolate. Heck, you don’t even need a reason to celebrate!
Granted, with the promise of Cupid’s quiver making hearts aquiver, all eyes are on chocolate right now. I used to inhale the duty free European chocolates my parents brought back from their world travels. Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, all chocolate havens. I’d be remiss to leave out my English indulgence, the Cadbury Flake. I’m delighted to have a world class chocolatier just down the road from me in downtown Raleigh. Videri Chocolate Factory has recently won accolades at the Good Food Awards for its strawberry anise ganache. It’s too good to be sinful.
