Chocolate Adventures in Europe!

Our lovely Candy Girl Jenny went on a European vacation recently, and brought us back pictures of her tastiest tourist excursions in Brussels, Prague and Paris!

Jenny told us: "Chocolate was everywhere in Brussels!  The choices were overwhelming.  The store displays were fantastic - this is Brussels' icon, the 'Mannken Pis.'"
There she is! Globe-trotter (and chocolate enthusiast) Jenny in Prague. "I visited a chocolate museum in Prauge, which described the history of chocolate and had a vast array of historic chocolate wrappers and packaging," Jenny told us. "I even got to see a demonstration of how filled chocolates are made."
Jenny said, "The museum also had a display of chocolate cats!" No offense to Prague, but these cats don't hold a candle to our chocolate bunnies at Easter!

Ah, La Belle France! "I went to Le Mere de Familie Gourmand chocolate shop on the Rue Cler in Paris," Jenny said. "They had delicious caramels!"

Here she is at an adorable confection shop on l'Ile St Louis. "The chocolate fountain was amazing!" she said.
Ah, the coup d'etat! La Maison du Chocolat! Jenny told us this landmark chocolatier is next to the Louvre, and has great macaroons. Mmm!

Thanks so much to our intrepid cross-Atlantic Candy Girl for sending all the pictures!
