The candy kind I mean. You may remember that I had complained back before Christmas about the Candy Kitchen. They seemed in disarray and tired. However, last week I was out stretching my legs and stopped by. Looking around I saw a lot of new candy and noticed that they had reworked their truffles. There were lots of new flavors . Immediately one caught my eye that I knew I had to have: Dark chocolate with sea salt. Now I have to confess: I prefer milk chocolate. (Please stifle the gasps) and I like it unsalted, but I knew I had to take these home to Mrs. F. They combined two of her favorite food things. I was not wrong. She gobbled them down and professed them the most wonderful thing to come out of the Candy Kitchen ever.
I was going to insert a wonderful close up picture of the truffles, but they didn’t last long enough to be photographed. Go get some.
With all that’s going on blogging is always a little light this time of year. Busy planning the menus!
Just noticed that the Frederick Wine House is having the Willm Cremant d’Alsace available for tasting tomorrow (12/24) from 4pm -7 pm along with some other wines. Its free! If you happen to taste it let me know what you think.
When eating and drinking I usually feel that quality is preferred over quantity. That’s why in the Fred household we usually give the kids a nice piece of chocolate in their stockings from the Candy Kitchen. Mrs. F usually gets an all dark chocolate box of truffles from there as well. Last week I stopped by to get the goods and the place was in utter disarray and had little or no stock. Now I know that this is their busy season, and it is always chaotic when you go this time of year, but it seemed worse then usual: no chocolate Santas at all and little or no truffles. This was first thing in the morning as well, so it wasn’t like they were hit hard before I got there. Anyone else experience this? Anyone know what’s going on? It made me sad, but I had to get the stuff elsewhere. First time in 13 years no Candy Kitchen in Mrs F’s stocking.
Careful opening that bubbly. A recent study found that Champagne corks come out at over 24 mph!
