I Get My Chocolate Fix From Hotel Chocolat

One thing I definitely think the US could improve on is luxury chocolate.  After all, this is a country that produces Hershey's (big yuck).  But hey, why do you need nice chocolate when you've got stuff like Krispy Kremes, Jamba Juice, and See's Candies?  And of course, there's Godiva and Lindt.  So nope, no need for any more chocolate stores. 

However, I'm so over Godiva.  And I was over Lindt a long time ago.  That's why I was thrilled when Hotel Chocolat opened a branch - right next to my office.  It's perfect for last minute gifts (ahem, like today, when I was on my way to meet Udita and realized I had nothing to give her as a mini-"I-miss-you-congratulations-on-almost-finishing-your-thesis-good-luck-at-your-impending-job-interview" gift) and the prices are reasonable.  And in searching for a non-traditional chocolate surprise for John this past Easter, I came across this adorable White Chocolate Eggs & Soldiers box, which we ate for breakfast in place of real eggs and soldiers.

When I next have an excuse to pop in, you'll find me crouched over their many shelves and leaving with the distinctive white bag dangling from my arm.  And maybe - just maybe - it's for you.
