And now, on to week 2 of my favorite things! I have found a lot of delicious things on my travels this past year, but a few of them stand out. I know I wrote a series centered around chocolate, but to be honest, I’m not really a huge fan of chocolate. I can take it or leave it. If I’m going to eat it, it needs to be damn good. While in Seattle, my wonderful friend Lorren took me to Pike Place Market. There is a place there called Chukar Cherries. They gave us a sample of Chocolate Honey Pecans. Let me just tell you, I have ordered 4 bags of these things since I got home. They are AMAZING!

The next thing we found was in Toronto. I don’t know where else these are made, but we definitely don’t have them in Ohio. My husband bought these things in bulk every time we went to a store in Toronto. They are called Aero and they are made by Nestle. They’re like, little bubbles of chocolate, wrapped in chocolate. It’s like chocolate bursting in your mouth. When we got to London the other day, he saw them in a store and immediately grabbed like 10 of them.

And last but not least, another one from Seattle. There’s a place there on Market Street called Cupcake Royale. Now, I’m not a big cake fan (I know, chocolate and now cake. Obviously I’m a loser) but these cupcakes were TO DIE FOR. Salted Carmel cupcake, Lavender cupcake, Pumpkin Cardamom…the list is endless.  Plus, they sell awesome shirts, stickers and coffee mugs that say things like “I’m a Frostitute” and “Does this cupcake make me look gay?” salted_caramel1cupcake

    OMG I am PMSing and these are practically the survival food kit I am in need of. But I swear to god, if you send me that fucking Jesus statue, I am going to come to Ohio, get you drunk and THEN kick your ass. It is also not beneath me to-while your stinkin drunk, to strip you down and stick your naked ass out the window yelling FREE SMACKS! But really I love ya..just don’t send the statue. For realz.
