From La Vieille Europe (which may be spelled wrong), a shop on St-Laurent in Montreal, I brought back to Lime some chocolates of the most unusual sort. They are made with really good-quality chocolate, but also with something unusual, whether spicy of just flavourful, ground up and mixed in.
The company that makes them is a Belgian one called Dolfin and let me tell you, they spared no imagination when coming up with these flavours to mix in with their chocolate: Pink Pepper, Hot Masala, Early Grey, Aniseed, and Fresh Ginger are just a few of the flavours.
The only reason I know about these chocolates are because Jean-Louis and Christine, two of my friends now living in Quebedc City, told me about them. I tried to bring them to Korea last year, too, but I was foolish enough to leave them in my bag, and Marvin’s dog Bailey enjoyed them all. But this year I succeeded, only to find that Lime really isn’t all that crazy about chocolates. Well, anyway, she took home the Early Grey-flavoured one, but told me to finish the Hot Masala flavour on my own.
Which I did.
