SPEAKING OF CHOCOLATE
If you are in Redlands, CA visit PARLIAMENT Chocolates. Liz (L) and Amia (R) were very welcoming and knowledgeable. I had a good impression of the company based on their enthusiasm. The bars I sampled were made from Dominican and Guatemalan cacao beans; and they were very good. They use other cacao beans as well. The owners travel to find the ones they want to use. Their bon bons were in several flavors and also were very good (after all of this I had a chocolate buzz! Whee!). I also learned they dry roast and powder vanilla beans to use in some of their products. The owl is their symbol. A group of owls is a "Parliament." You should look up why.
