So now that I am almost over my jet lag, it is time to start posting all the wonderful things I am experiencing in Italy. (Also I will get back to my normal schedule of posts that I had started "Throwback Thursday and "Foodie Friday" soon.) My husband is from a small sea side town that is still having weather that even southern California could envy now, and while strolling today we saw a chocolate festival! So of course we had to stop and taste.
|Nocciole (hazelnuts) on slabs of white, dark and milk chocolate
|Truffles that resemble a popular cake here called "testa di moro"
|Chocolate rice krispy type treats
|Hot chocolate machines
|Salumi di cioccolato (chocolate salmi)
|Cremino a type of rich fudge
|Chocolate spreads that give Nutella a run for its money
