My Funny Valentine


Valentine's Day might not be the number one candy day in the U.S., but it's in the top three so where is all the fun and delicious candy?
I think a lot of it has migrated to the Interweb, but you can't get a schmear online (although I hear Steve Jobs is working on an Oompa Loompa app).


You can always find something if you go a hunting down the stores, and I found this set of bars to contain an inoffensive, passable milk chocolate. It smells too sweet out of the wrapper, yet bites easily with a soft crunch.
Also from Tarjét, these are prettier than the Man Bars. They also taste better than you'd expect with a smooth and mildly interesting flavor. They only sell in gift packages of four.
This chocolate may not be afraid of commitment, but you might fear the 270 calories per bar, 150 of which are Fat Calories.

Note: I've been spending some time on Evelyn's Corner, the blog I started for my 85-year-old mother, so hop over there if you've had a sugar overload. I see some canned tomato recipes in the near future.

They might not have been as tasty as they were funny, C., but for generic chocolate that's all about the wrapper, they weren't half bad.
