Welcome to the Land of Chocolate

According to Roget’s Thesaurus, there are only five synonyms for the verb drool. We, however, can think of others — they’re the names of the more than two dozen vendors participating in the 13th Annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival. Here are just a few teasers from this year’s installment of every chocoholic’s dream fest:

Amore Chocolate Pizza
Boomerang Chocolate Martinis
Ciao Bella Gelato
Napa Valley Fudge Company
Young’s Double Chocolate Stout

We could go on (really, we could!) but we have to wipe the saliva from our lips. You’ll need plenty of napkins, as well a few dollars to enjoy tasting all the deliciousness, when you attend this so-called “free” event — there’s simply no way to walk inside and somehow miraculously leave without paying for a few bites (or, in the case of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, beers). As Homer Simpson so elequently phrased it: “Mmmmmm ... chocolate.” — John Graham
