Birthday candy

This is my birthday weekend and my best friend sent me what appeared to be a box of Seattle Chocolates truffles. That is, she used them as a kind of packing material around the presents she sent. Aren't they pretty?

The bag the truffles came in says: "What happiness tastes like."

Truth in advertising.

I have long been a fan of Seattle Chocolates, my favorites being their smooooth mint and milk chocolate flavors. When I lived in Seattle, my favorite hostess gift for friends outside Washington State was a collection of truffles in a Celebrate! box or one shaped like a ferry boat. Always a big hit!

But since moving to Montana, I'd forgotten how much I like these truffles. Right now I am luxuriating in flavors like peanut butter, coconut macaroon (they didn't put enough of these in this mix!), strawberry creme, blackberry creme, and rainier cherry. I still have at least 10 flavors to try.

Aren't birthdays wonderful? Aren't friends who send you chocolate to celebrate with even more wonderful!


  1. Happy Birthday! There's no better way to celebrate than with a box of Seattle's best, chocolate that is. Hope you had a wonderful day.

  2. A belated Happy Birthday, Mary!

  3. Have a very happy and extended birthday my friend!

  4. Thank you so much for the birthday greetings!

    I hope you notice I am in fact trying to sell you on Seattle Chocolates, which really do help make a celebration something special and are made in the Pacific Northwest, where life is really worth celebrating! :)
