With the celebration of the resurrection of Christ only ten days away I thought I’d highlight for you one of my favourite specialty chocolate shops in Auckland – for glorious, handmade, boutique chocolates it’s hard to go past Devonport Chocolates http://www.devonportchocolates.co.nz/ anytime I’m in the vicinity … it’s worth a trip across the Bridge http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland_Harbour_Bridge I can recommend DC’s Limoncello yachts (dark choc) and their Lavender & Honey morsels (milk choc). They sell them individually or by the boxful – beautifully giftwrapped. My other favourite thing is their chocolate logs in various different flavours … espresso is my current favourite. If you’re after quality look no further – yum!
Not so much Golden Arches as Jaundiced Arches for those who ate a late burger at the Greenlane McDonalds on December 15th. A food handler (not a comforting term in this context) has sparked a public health hepatitis alert after working a late shift while highly infectious.
