"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." - Forrest GumpAt the Muzeo in Anaheim yesterday - we knew exactly what we were gonna get - a Chocolate Event! I have heard about this event for quite some time now, but the $40 price was a little too steep for me. So when I found a coupon on Travelzoo, I jumped at the chance to go.
I paid $20 for admission to the exhibit regularly $13 and 15 ChocoTix - tasting tickets. It was like going back to the time when people shopped using cacao beans, you bought these tickets in the shape of candy bars and if you wanted to sample treats from the vendors, you exchanged tickets for the samples. The vendors were awesome - we had fondue, wine, meatballs in chocolate bbq sauce, chocolate covered strawberries, caramel apples, cupcakes, and handfuls of kisses. It was very fun and very crowded!
Hopefully, with all the technology we have today - we are not subjecting others to cruel work conditions for the love of chocolate. So as you enjoy that sweet treat, make up for all the injustices it has caused by sharing it with someone who really needs to smile today! Indulge with a friend - or pass it on as a random act of kindness today.
Make the world a better place - one small treat at a time!
