This is what the postman brought for me on the weekend. More on the contents of this chocolatey package and a sneak peak at the package I sent off to a mystery person, a little later today.
It was time for EBBP again, this time being hosted by my friend Johanna over at The Passionate Cook. I was glad I was able to take part in it, as just in the nick of time I was able to register myself before my vacation and Johanna accepted me posting my parcel after my vacation.
On Saturday I received my surprise parcel from the very gracious and thoughtful Xoch of Xochitl Cooks. Xoch's blog is new to me and after browsing through it i believe I will become a regular!
Xoch put together an amazing collection of chocolates from around the world. For a chocolate freak like me it was a fantasy come true!! I had to hold myself off from jumping into the box and living there for the weekend LOL!
After reading her card I really laughed and almost cried at the same time. Laughed because she writes about the English cream chocolates that she bought from a chocolatier near her flat:
"I really like the floral taste even though it reminds me of old ladies."
Xoch yes ... they really do, but are delicious.
I almost cried because I was so touched that she took the time to find my taste:
"Fortunately I saw that you are "mad about chocolate"! I therefore decided to send you a chocolate tasting pack."
Xoch, thanks a million for putting this parcel together I love every bite!
Then there is a mystery person who will be receiving the package I sent off yesterday. I decided to pack a few goodies that celebrate the upcoming seasons, one of which is a traditional German "Stollen". What could be in the rest of the little pouches? Your guess is as good as that of the recipient. Why don't you all have a go at guessing?
