Mmmm… Chocolate

Pinterest

Tanya happily walked in the front door a few days ago after a short getaway. “Hey, roomie! I brought you back some delicious treats from my trip to Lviv!”

“Noooooooooooo!” I screamed. What was she trying to do to me? I’ve already shared my concerns on how I need to cut back on sweets after the holidays, but there she was, all smiles and holding chocolates in her hand. I had to resist.

“Wait, what’s going on here?” I began to think as I was watcing my hand quickly snatch up a piece, then proceed to unwrap and pop it in my mouth. It all happened too quickly, and there I was, all smiles and munching on some decadent sweets.

The chocolates were made by a company called Svitoch, which is indigenous to Lviv in western Ukraine. Svitoch has actually been around since 1882 in one form or another, according to this in depth history found here, and even though it was acquired by the Nestle company in the mid 90s, it is still ranted and raved about by the locals.

I immediately stopped thinking about how festively plump I had become over the holidays and just enjoyed the serotonin being released in my brain. Man, I love chocolate! Thanks, roomie, for a great present!

*p.s. Malena, if you are going to Ukraine, you should check these out!

    If these are what I think they are, then you should know that a few years ago I checked a HUGE bag of them on my flight out of Kyiev! That candy didn’t last too long.

    Haha, nice. Chocolate never seems to last long, does it? 😉
