NO Photos, well almost none

So we just got back from a night in LA and another two in Santa Barbara, which were lovely. I definitely ate my body weight in deliciousness! The problem? LA: No one will let you photograph their food. Santa Barbara: My camera died! Ack.

- handmade chocolate coconut bar
Super delicious. Good quality dark chocolate, coconut flakes, and marshmallow center. Only drawback is that it kinda looks like a turd.

Joan's on Third (http://www.joansonthird.com/index.htm)(yes, again)
- handmade chocolate coconut bar
See above ;)
- Chocolate Coconut Cupcake
This was the best cupcake I've ever eaten. The cake was actually tasted like really good quality dark dark chocolate. Topped with vanilla butter cream and coconut flakes. It really was the best. Sorry Sprinkles.

Chocolate Maya (http://www.chocolatemaya.com)
- Dark chocolate truffle with ancho chili (pictured above)
Simply lovely. Dark, smokey, silky chocolate truffle with no chili flavor, but a hint of heat after its gone. I also got a bag of dark chocolate cabernet soaked cherries, which were excellent, and a bar of single origin 85% organic dark chocolate that was grown and produced in Ecuador. Believe it or not, I have yet to scarf this one down. The shop had an amazing selection of chocolates from around the world, including Madagascar. Lots of unisource/organic/locally produced options. I would drive the 4 hrs just to go to Chocolate Maya.

Don't worry, I will soon be on the "Madagascar" diet. *Sigh*
