Recreating NYC, II

On Thursday, I ate in uptown before comedy bootcamp... and I loved being there. I walked from my car, to a restaurant, to a grocery store (to pick up Lindt's Lindor Truffles) and then to Calhoon Square. Everything was a little more spread out than NYC, but I loved walking from destination to destination.

The supermarket stock guy was really nice. We talked about candy bars and he told me that Ritter bars from Germany are the new big thing. He can't keep them stocked between weekly shipments.

The Lindor Truffles I chose were excellent. They start out with a light coating of oil that softens your fingers and lips. There is a delicate, semi-sweet "skin" (not exoskeleton) that protects the soft, luscious sphere of fudge. As you squeeze the truffle between the roof of your mouth and tongue, you can feel the skin pop as sweet, silky fudge spills everywhere.... saturating your mouth with chocolate.
