Today is a sad day. It’s the first day since July 5th I don’t have four hours of the Tour de France to watch. It’s the first day I won’t be checking Tour Tracker to get behind the scenes info on the race and perhaps the worst part is – no more daily Backstage Pass videos from the guys at Orica Green Edge.
What’s the perfect cure for post-TDF depression? Chocolate. And lucky for all of us TDF junkies, today is National Milk Chocolate Day. Not that I (or my fellow cycling enthusiasts) need a holiday to eat chocolate, but you know – today I’ll make a special effort to do my part.
And on this most esteemed food holiday, I’d like to take a moment to give a shout out to French Broad Chocolates in Asheville, NC. Not only is it one of my favorite places to hang out when we’re in town, it has a supporting role in my Immortals novel. Think – First date… Chocolate… Kissing. Uhm yeah. Good stuff. And speaking of good stuff – FBC’s milk chocolate liquid truffle (pictured right) is AMAZING!! It’s seriously like drinking a cup of chocolate heaven, but better. Next time you’re in Asheville, you MUST check them out.
Now it’s your turn. Give a shout out for your favorite milk chocolate.
