Very recently, there was a milestone birthday at my house (I turned the big nottelling-0 earlier this month), during which I celebrated by….not having any chocolate.
That is correct. This chocolate lover did not have any chocolate whatsoever on her birthday. This was for two reasons.
- I’d had more than my fair share of chocolate over the past month or two. (The chocolate you see on this site? I had a part in eating a lot of it. And you haven’t seen all the outtakes, or the photos that haven’t been published yet!)
- A little bird told me that some of my gifts would be either partially or entirely composed of chocolate.
The little bird was correct. My parents decided to deviate from conventional brands and flavors; one of their gifts was a stone-ground, hand-crafted, raw, vegan chocolate giftset by Rawmio, with intriguing flavors such as sprouted almonds and hemp!
