A chocolate orgy in Paris

This weekend is the Salon du Chocolat in Paris.

My advice is to go with a big appetite, big pockets and a big checkbook. There is lots of sampling and plenty of temptation.

There’s hot chocolate and chocolate spreads.


Chocolate bonbons in bright colors…


…pretty spheres

and shaped like animals and fish and vegetables.


There are chocolate truffles, chocolate mendiants and chocolate pavés.





Chocolate bars and chocolate tablettes.



There are giant slabs of chocolate with nuts and berries and candies…





…and chocolate treats by the ounce.


Chocolate fondant, chocolate pastries and chocolate macarons.






Plus, chocolate demos and sculptures.




There are chocolatiers and chocolate experts.



High quality chocolate…


… and sugary garbage.


I think there will be plenty of chocolate in my dreams tonight.

Thank YOU, ladies, for feasting with your eyes. Trust me, I sampled enough for all of us. NYCS&C, let me know how the NY one is - I went a few years back and remember it being super crowded, but still very delicious!
