Savannah, I wanted to get you an American Chocolate Week gift, but couldn't figure out anything appropriate. A card, flowers?

Speaking of chocolate....


I discovered a new one that is worth sharing. A friend of mine actually discovered it, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover how wonderful it is. It's a chocolate from Germany, and the brand is called 'Choceur'....you find it at Aldi stores. I had never been in an Aldi, but my friend told me I simply had to try it so I made a special stop in, LOL. It is seriously divine. And cheap. So far I've only tried the milk chocolate, but they do have dark, among others. Here's a mention of it on someone's blog.

I knew this would be great news for Savannah. Do you have an Aldi near you? If not, I know what chocolate I'll be giving you next time I see you!

One of my divas sent me chocolate all the way from Austria. Now that was good, though I think my girls ate more of it than I did.

YUM!!!!


One question. Why is American Chocolate week during Lent, of all times?! And, being 'American' chocolate week, does this mean I can't have imported?

Ohhhhhhh, Lindt, Lindt, Lindt......Rob!

Alex, thanks for the Tim-Tam!

Ooooooooooh, Amy, I've never heard of that chocolate before.
We don't have an Aldi here, so I'll have to wait to try it. But it sure sounds good!

Edited to add: LOL! Amy! I think you'd be safe having imported chocolate. But I'm prejudiced.

LOL Rob....I LOVE Lindt truffles---my favorite of all!


I just think it's funny that they'd have this during Lent, considering how many people give up chocolate during it! LOL!


And Savannah, you're in for a treat!

Oh, I must celebrate and rush out and get some chocolate. No wonder I've been craving chocolate all week. I have to stop at Aldi anyway, and pick up some milk. So, I may as well pick up some of the chocolate Amy suggested. And, the dollar store happens to be right next to Aldi, so I can run in and get some 100 Grand bars and Sno-caps. I need to stock up so I can be sure to celebrate all week.

Hmm, I've never heard of that Lori...where do you find it?


Pam, let me know what you think of the Choceur! (By the way, in our store it's on the wall RIGHT as you're coming into the store, on the lefthand side...there's a huge section of imported chocolate. It's sold with the wine. ).

I sure will, Amy. That's where our Aldi's stocks the chocolate too. Probably so you can't miss it and are tempted to buy some. Somehow, I've managed to keep my eyes focused straight ahead and keep on walking past them. Although, believe me, I am well aware they are there. HeeHee Then, I noticed the last time I was there, they had some bars at the checkout too. I almost bought one. I don't know why they torture me that way. Maybe I'll pick up a bottle of wine and try that too. Sounds like a great combo to me!

LOL Pam, most definitely! Actually, I can usually walk past most chocolate displays, especially if I'm in that 'serious grocery shopping mode'. In this case, my friend specifically told me to go to Aldi for this stuff....so in my case, I haven't shopped in Aldi at all, other than for their chocolate!
