...Those who know me are well-aware that dark chocolate means Christmas morning, the best day of your life, and the perfect sunset mixed and fused into one small square of rich dark cocoa. :)
Every time I've taken a bite (or five) out of the block of my 'Christmas morning' (by the way, the remnants of that dark chocolate aren't shown in this picture of course, the other square of chocolate is ;) ), I am pleasantly surprised by the power of contrasts ingrained in this little, simple food--The dark chocolate's taste is sweet and bitter, hard and soft, solid and yet easily able to melt in your mouth like a slow rush of thick volcanic lava surrounding your inner being with a total sense of comfort and, of course, enjoyment of the flavor that has just taken over you.
With the adorable illustration on the box accompanied by a phrase that reads "Where the Sun always shines," I can say those are the exact words that echo whenever dark chocolate comes to my mind, especially this specific chocolate from London.
And while I am of course looking forward to enjoying the authentic English tea my dad also brought from London, I can't wait to sink my teeth once again in this deliciously aromatic, dark volcanic-like set of sparks that contain a taste that I can't replace with any other.
