You can't visit Belgium without digging into chocolate. It's famous for a reason and not-to-be-missed. We enjoyed sampling a few from each of the local chocolateries and determining which ones we liked best. The storefronts were also exquisite and even more spectacular, at times, than the chocolates! I was very impressed with the amount of effort put into excellent presentation.
While all the chocolates were absolutely delicious, I couldn't help but feel like the best chocolates in the world are right here in the U.S of A. at Woodhouse Chocolates. This is the stuff that dreams are made of...if you love chocolate that is (who doesn't?). If you're lucky enough to live in the Bay Area, head up to St. Helena at your earliest convenience. Even if you're not a wine drinker, it's still fun to visit Napa Valley for the scenery, great food, and small-town experience. By the way, Quatres Epices, Mint, and Passion Fruit are my favorites at Woodhouse.
