Yesterday I went shopping at Trader Joe’s – I needed to pick up a few things. While I was diligently shopping checking out the wine demo, I noticed my buddy – HippieT – stocking liquer filled chocolates.
I wandered around shopped more diligently and hit the demo stand a few times. As I was checking out HippieT was at a register so I went to his line. As I was about to get in line, I suddenly realized what it actually meant that he was stocking liquer filled chocolates. OMG self — IT’S HOLIDAY TIME which means that it’s the time of year that some of my favorite products show up in the story. So I asked HippieT if something had appeared yet.

I can’t stand this rushing of the season. WELL I mostly can’t stand the rushing of the season. But when it comes to holiday chocolates, it’s never too early (or too late).
