    mmmm vinegar shrub. I am sure I would like that. But why call it a shrub?

    YUM that toffee + turtle (that word still confuses me) look/sound SO SO good. But I would also live on your raw cauli concoction because that too sounds delicious. You have very smart taste buds.

    swwwwweeeeeeeet indeed 🙂

    Now you know what a turtle is and will have to learn how to make them back at home.

    (so jealous you got to go to Elbow’s store)

    Dear lord, those chocolates are all insane! Pecan toffee… i need to make that! Mmm roasted brussel sprouts are a fave of mine too.

  5. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    I should not read your blog without handy access to a supply of chocolate. Your descriptions always give me the most insane cravings.
    Oh and I would be right next to you in the warloard’s truck asking where the sherbert is.

    Ahahaha. I love this post! You are so silly (in a terribly good way (:). And that’s EXACTLY what I think of too when the word ‘turtle’ pops up!

  7. Ellie@Fit for the Soul

    what a sweet place! And although I’ve been living in the US for 12 years now, I still think of real turtles when people talk about the treat. Silly me. And your intro is too funny! Don’t worry Hannah, I’ll make sure to send you some more chocolate if you’re really kidnapped. 🙂

    HAHAHAHAH I would most definitely be tricked with that sign too! 😀 Right, gotta go eat chocolate now.

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Those signs do manage to be oh-so-enticing. I’m so glad you pursued this one because those chocolate discoveries sound impressive – although, I must say, not quite as impressive as being able to drink a shrub 😉

    DO WANT the pecan toffee and turtles! They look and sound so divine. Also the refreshing shrub, even if you were brought to it by a deceptive sign. (I only learnt what a shrub was in beverage terms earlier this year, incidentally.)

    Love the look of the Pecan Toffee chocolate. Gorgeous looking.

    W>O>W. I’m just gonna come out with random thoughts : pecan toffee! Yes, love how you thought of ring pops – so oldskool yet still so good. I wish I could just walk around wearing it at work – sugar craving will be kept at bay all day long! LOL

  13. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Aaand now you have completely revived my desperate craving for more of that fantasmic toffee. Thanks a lot.

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Ooh my kingdom for the pecan toffee (and are you pronouncing pe-KARN? 😉 ).

    You look so so pretty in that pic, lovely. Happy and pretty. And hydrated. Yay 🙂

    no no no Christopher Elbow should get you to write their marketing blurbs! I loved this post – made me smile – and want those chocolates – they look amazing

    BTW I once worked at a place called Shrub House and was likewise disappointed at the lack of stunted greenery

  17. Catherine

    Is Christopher Elbow married???

  18. Libby

    Oh wow, look at all that beautiful, beautiful toffee!

  19. Caitlin @ livelovenyc

    that toffee turtle looks fab. i’m loving your travels around the US 🙂

  20. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    My friend, I can relate – I don’t think I can turn away from a store that says “sweets” outside 🙂

  21. Emma

    Mmm, girl look at that toffee. Girl look at that toffee. Girl look at that toffee. I work ouuut.

    Couldn’t resist:) I’m seeing shrubs left and right online, but I have yet to try one. The drink that is, not the bush. I’ve already tried chewing on a few relatively low height plants. Not super tasty.

  22. Louise

    Forget vinegary shrubs, those chocolates look fabulous.

  23. Silvia

    Oh these chocolate pieces look great. Super great.

    But I did hear only postive things about Christopher Elbow. Even over here in Switzerland.

    […] with a molten middle, topped with crunchy toffee and almonds. (You all know how I feel about toffee and nuts.) Thank you, Cheryl and Ken, for allowing me to be your guest for the night. It meant so much to […]
