The Land of Chocolate....

I found out that all the local Cost Plus World Markets are going out of business.  I'd been buying weird candy and stuff from them for a while, so I decided to stock up on all the unusual chocolate I'd never be able to buy again without driving to their closest store in Des Moines.  I bought:

Lindt 70% dark chocolate Cherry & Chili
Valor 70% dark chocolate with Banana
Vosges 55% dark chocolate Red Fire Bar (ancho & chipotle chilies and cinnamon)
The Tea Room 58% dark chocolate Green Earl Grey Tea
The Tea Room 30% white chocolate Chamomile & Honey
World Market 64% dark chocolate with Sea Salt
3400 Phinney 40% milk chocolate Coconut Curry
3400 Phinney 65% dark chocolate French Bread & Chocolate
Niederegger 50% dark chocolate-covered marzipan
6 tubes of Smarties (65% milk chocolate)
Bellagio Sipping Chocolate
World Market Mexicocoa Drinking Chocolate (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, allspice)
Three 3-packs of Great Bite mints (like a cross between Altoids and Tic-Tacs)

Oh, poop! I hope that's not the end of the entire chain.. even in the Bay, I used to drop by them on occasion, for the fun little foodstuffs they'd have on offer. True, BevMo's got a much broader range of beers, but CP seemed to be quite a bit more commonplace.

We will, naturally, be expecting reviews as you progress through the list. ^_^

I had already purchased a Vosges Mo's Bacon Bar (41% milk chocolate) and a Lindt Dark Chocolate Chili bar. I suppose I should post my thoughts on those. It generally takes me a week or so to eat one bar of these rich chocolates, so it'll take a while to get through all this stuff.
