Today is the final section of your Chocolate Priestess's report on the Chocolate Walk she and the Chocolate Coconut Acolyte went to this past weekend on November 14, 2009. Please do leave comments on this report and let me know if you have any questions.
We stopped at the Artist Colony shops, which I covered in Part 3, and assessed our time, energy, and apetite. Now you may think that free chocolate related samples from 30 places is great until you actually are walking, getting them, and eating them. We knew we had to keep going on this Pilgrimage and those never supposed to be easy but push your physically and spiritually, but we reasoned if we could, we'd wait to eat the rest of the samples later.
The last three locations were in the Coachlight Square area beteween Van Buren, Washington, and Schoolhouse Lane. The first was another Bloomington import: the Chocolate Emporium which I used to visit monthly when I had meetings downdown. They had tiny gold-foil wrapped truffles that were very dark and packed an immediate buzz when I tried it later. This was by the Bone Appetit store that has dog treats including safe "chocolate" ones for your pets. Sorry, I didn't get a photograph here though I cannot honestly remember why I didn't take one.
Now it was after 4pm and we headed back to mavido's car and back to my place to relax before she headed to her own home. I pushed through and ate the sample I brought home so I could report on them for you all. Then, quite honestly, I didn't crave chocolate for a few days. The event was fun and it earned a lot of money for the Brown County Humane Society. Mavido and I hope we can do it again next year and we hope a few of you will join us.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
