Today I went to Red Elephant Chocolatiers, a frequent stop on our food tours, to see what’s new for the spring. Sometimes on our tours we buy ice cream, and I always recommend the rotating season flavor. Right now it’s blueberry cheesecake. Sounds delicious- I wish I could’ve tried some but I just had lunch before my visit.
Theobroma chocolates are still on display. This is the world’s rarest chocolate. The Latin name for the cocoa tree, theobroma or “food of the gods,” refers to the ancient belief that the gods cast down cacao from heaven. Today theobroma also indicates a chocolate of superlative quality. This is one of Red Elephant’s signature chocolates and something guests on our food tour often enjoy.
There are also special chocolates for mother’s day. These flavors are raspberry lemonade, coconut lime, and peaches & cream. These sound delightful to try.
I noticed a curling stone with a Red Elephant sticker on the counter. It turns out Red Elephant sponsors the U.S. junior men’s curling team, which won the national championship. Congratulations!
Looking forward to visits to Red Elephants as our first food tour of the 2018 season takes place this weekend.
