Belgian Chocolate in Ankara

Last week, my friend Marlene sent out an email informing fellow expats that The Chocolate Art would have Christmas chocolates available on December 8th.  Marlene is a great friend to have – she knows all you need to know as an expat in town.  Although we have mostly been “virtual friends,” we finally met this year.  And I have to say, sometimes, it’s like we are twins who think the same things at the same time.

The very day Marlene sent the email, I had been to The Chocolate Art.  Having walked by many times, I finally set foot in the door and did not want to leave!  I had also asked about Christmas chocolates, and they also told me December 8th.  But I’m a bit more skeptical in Turkey than I normally would be.  When someone tells me they will have an item for sale on a certain date, I just walk away thinking, “yeah, right.”

Today, I was pleasantly surprised.  I went back for Christmas chocolates and this is what I found:

Yummy, right?  I tasted a few and they were delicious.  So I bought a few.  They also have lovely chocolate and white chocolate Santas and chocolate tree ornaments.

The chocolates are imported from Belgium.  I am told they are organic, are not to be refrigerated, and need to be eaten in 21 days.  I have no problem with that!

The chocolates are pricey, but reasonable for what they are.  I loved the tree shaped advent calendar, built with blocks, photos of dogs on the calendar, and a scrumptious chocolate behind each door.  The price on that has been discounted since we are only 15 days from Christmas.

Get ’em while the gettin’s good.
