  2. Nice portrait of two small optimistic flowers. What kind of flower/bush/tree is it?

      • Realy? A chocolate tree sounds too good to be truth…. 🙂 I haven´t seen the flowers before, though chocolate and the process of making it has become a subject that we talk a lot about here, at the moment. There is spotlight at the quality and the process of how the farmers are treated.
        As far as I know, Germany has a lot of good and famous chocolate products. Soon, at christmas time, we will see Lübecker marzipan in the shops again.

  4. Oooh pretty. I’ll have to show this to my 9yo. She is studying chocolate at school. They get to taste test all different kinds of candy bars!

    • I would love to go to school with her on taste-test-day and taste everything before the kids do… you know, to make sure it’s good enough for them 😉
