Choccolandia

Last year it was at the Maritime Terminal, this weekend it has been in the central “Via della Madonna”: three days of “Choccolandia” with any kind of chocolate you can imagine and beyond.Chocolate animals, in dark, milk, and white varieties.Chocolate lollipops, molded into various shapes.Candied citron strips covered with chocolate.
Even salami are made of chocolate.

This is absolutely incredible. I think I must stay clear of this place as my will power is too strong (I've got lots of "will" power, but very little "won't" power. I will eat as much chocolate as I can get my hands on!)

So, what did you purchase?

By the way, I put a link to the Benches blog on Ocala DP!

Hope you and your sweetie had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I love chocolate & this selection looks amazing and oh so tempting!
I have to ask, what does salami chocolate taste like?

Dina said...

Chocolate salami?! Oh no!
But I'll take a kilo of the coated citron.

Kaori said...

Ohmigod! I could be there for hours! That looks SO GOOD! ...oh wait, didn't realize that was salami ;D

What a sweet start of the week! Salami looks a bit bizzare to me but I'm sure I would get addicted to citron strips with chockolate:)

Tash said...

I so HEART chocolate. But I think I want my salami to be salami. LOL!
Yummy and sweet photos, VP. Although I'm not a big fan of white chocolate, I would buy up all the little fishies.

It's me again - the statue in Rybnik is John of Nepomuk. Very comman in this part of Europe - often erected by roads and on bridges.

Andreea said...

Wow this look great but I'm glad I wasn't anywhere near this place :) I'm still trying to shed off some winter holiday extra pounds and I don't think my strong will would help in this case. The chocolate citron is the one that caught my eye in particular :)
