Inspired by Sarah Gailey’s Upright Women Wanted (reviewed here), I decided to infuse my birthday this year with some CowGrrl Power. About a month ago, while doing research for a story, I discovered the Cowgirl Chocolates site and ordered myself a package of Dark Chocolates with Lavender, Dark Chocolates with Huckleberry, and a bar of Spicy Mint Truffle.
Rating: Five big and bright stars! The lavender bar definitely feels like I’m eating perfume, and the spicy mint one has a delightful blend of refreshing mint with a slight rattlesnake bite. The huckleberry bar is more subtle, with the dark chocolate shining much brighter than the berries, but it’s totally Oklahoma-OK!
Recommended if you like: unusual flavor combinations, eating essential oils, supporting small businesses.

In other news, the Golden Gate Bridge is apparently singing. Anyone else wondering if the Bay Area mermaids are sending us a message of hope (considering the song isn’t accompanied by a standing wave)?
