Chocolate Affaire

Last Saturday, we attended the 15th Annual Chocolate Affaire festival in Glendale, Arizona. Hubby and I went with YD and her BF and, let me tell you, you could actually smell chocolate in the air. We went late in the morning so we could — as hubby said — have lunch, eat a bunch of crap, then have the rest of the day to throw up. While nobody blew, we all consumed our fair share. Between the four of us, we bought fry bread tacos, chicken strips, sweet potato fries, caramel apples, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate dipped pretzels, caramel pecan clusters, peanut clusters and root beer floats. Some of it we took home for later. 😉

Since downtown Glendale is a historic district with tons of antique shops, we did a little browsing.

We had some blue skies, some overcast and a few sprinkles of raindrops here and there. Once we left the festival, we stopped at the Cerreta Candy factory and took the tour. I have never seen so much chocolate in my life! The equipment was amazing. It was a fun little tour to take.

I’m almost embarrassed to say that after this wonderful day of chocolate indulgence, we went out for Mexican food. Yum!

  1. Amazing day – yum. I am stunned (and may require therapy) to learn that candy is, in fact, made in factories, and not by Oompa Loompas. Words fail me…..
