Back in our pre-Fayetteville days, the Mr. and I briefly lived in Vienna for a few months--it was wonderful in so many different ways...we were newly married, living in a new place, and the whole world felt like a giant adventure. Food and travel were at the center of that adventure--and I spent whole days walking around the city eating and checking out gourmet shops. Among other things, I discovered an amazing chocolate that I've never been able to find stateside. (Hopefully, someone out there in internet-land will hear this cry and set up shop nearby!)
Zotter Chocolate is AMAZING: it combines incredible and unusual ingredients together in the most amazing and surprising ways: goiji berries and sesame nougat, rose petals, styrian pumpkin seeds....yum.
