Valentine’s Day

My annual post about the wonders of chocolate. I’m traveling this week, so I’ll be indulging in chocolate from afar. If you haven’t heard yet, I’ll be attending WorldCon in August. I did a little research to see what sort of chocolate was available in Finland. I know from my visit to Norway a while back that there’s a Norwegian chocolate bar called Stratos. This upset me mightily, because I had just finished my first manuscript – a space opera – and one of the planets I named in the manuscript was Stratos. To this day, I will swear that Norway stole my planet. This chocolate bar had a porous nougat in the center, which was very different from the more creamy fillings I’m accustomed to.

As for Finland, it looks like I’ll have nothing to worry about. There’s plenty of chocolate in Finland for me to sample. I’ll be keeping an eye out for these two: Leaf Royal Samettinen Maitosuklaa and Panda Maitosuklaa
