Dear Kid,

You have such a good Daddy.

As we were leaving Niagara on the Lake on Sunday, Daddy said, “Would you like to stop at the chocolate place?”

On the way to Niagara on the Lake, we’d passed Chocolate F/X but we didn’t have time to stop. I’d forgotten about it, but your papa remembered.

Of course, we stopped. (Did I mention that we ate our way from one end of Niagara to the other?)

“If you can’t dip it in chocolate, it’s not worth eating” – Chocolate F/X

We met the owners, Art and Wilma, who happily told us all about Chocolate F/X while we sampled chocolate at their chocolate sampling bar. One of us sampled more than the other (I’ll leave it to you to guess which of us).

Happy at Chocolate F/X in Niagara on the Lake, Canada DearKidLoveMom.comThey import most of their chocolate from the Ivory Coast and Ghana, and then they proceed to do Amazing Things with it. You can watch some of the Amazing Things through the big glass windows (which we did) or take a tour (which we didn’t do).

If you’re planning a trip in that general direction, you might want to include time for a chocolate class (guess what’s on my agenda the next time we’re in that area?).

From the Unexpected Category, they carry a whole line of diabetic friendly products, cocoa mulch (seriously—mulch as is put down outside around the plants), and ice wine truffles. We tried an ice wine truffle. I may have to try it again to be sure it’s as good as I thought the first time…


Love, Mom
