It can be said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  For me it’s MUSIC….and CHOCOLATE!

Who’s with me?  Well according to, “40 percent of women report craving chocolate, while only 15 percent of men do.”  There are so many reason why my cravings for a sweet treat consume my thoughts.  That’s a discussion for another day.

This weekend it’s all about the biggest chocolate festival in the country when the Chocolate Expo comes back to New Jersey.  For one day only, chocolate lovers of all kinds will converge onto the New Jersey Expo Center in Edison this Sunday March 13, to see, smell and taste a variety of confection concoctions.

Local and regional vendors will present something for every chocoholic.  Sample and purchase baked goods like cupcakes, unique combinations like chocolate covered bacon, or the standard favorites like chocolate covered apples, fudge and macaroons.

But that’s not all.  The Chocolate Expo will also feature specialty foods, cheeses, and wines, along with entertainment throughout the day including demonstrations.  To purchase tickets click this link.
