What am I celebrating?

The birth of our nation, of course.

The fact that I had the freedom to drive around this beautify land and meet amazing people molding the US chocolate experience, many of whom I got to see last weekend in New York at FCIA’s Elevate Chocolate – Summer 2016 and the Fancy Food Show (more on that soon).

And, my birthday!  Yes, I was born on the 4th of July.

Happy birthday, America! Happy birthday, me! Now, let’s celebrate chocolate!
