Don't you feel it wafting around you, slipping over your senses, tickling your nose with scents of fruit and that ever so rich darkness beckoning you to come closer and just have one small taste...then another, then another...and another...
well, some of you did I'm sure but then how could you forget?
(in moderation always, of course)
Is good for your teeth? Good for your body? Good for your very soul?
And as always, the darker the better.

Time for these two events which get bigger and more chocolaty every year.
Two separate but equally tasty experiences for you to unleash your inner chocoholic.
or, as in my case, your external one ;) We'll have a booth at both events so stop by, say "Hi", and sample some of our
delectable chocolate desserts.
[don't worry, you can buy some to take home as well]
