Love is a wonderful thing! It’s hard to describe exactly how it feels when you are in love but it’s something the majority of humans, if not all humans, seek! Many factors will contribute to you falling in love but one thing I know is that when chocolate is involved, love is almost inevitable…
Where is she going with this, you ask? Well you see, for a few weeks now I have been realigning my lifestyle! I have been guided by an amazing nutritionist, shoutout to Michelle Vodrazka, and following a new workout and meal plan to reach my goals! In some ways, it represents a significant lifestyle change but it’s easy to embrace when you see results! Now, once a week I am granted a cheat meal and this week I certainly took advantage! Yes, I cheated and it was worth it… My self-control went down the drain and I indulged in a luscious treat until it was all gone! You just can’t fight this type of love!
Week # 22 Challenge: Try an ice cream treat at Chocolats Favoris!
Chocolats Favoris is a chocolate shop that recently opened in Orleans and appears to be a hot spot this summer! Everytime I drive by, countless people surround the shop’s entrance and terrace! I kept thinking: “One day I will try it!” and well that day happened to be last week.
Being a big sister, it seems only natural to want to share this type of treat with my little sister and her boyfriend. Once I had taken the orders, on my way to Chocolats Favoris I went! As I arrive, I see it: “Oh man, why is there such a long line!” It starts outside the building but I decide to wait it out. The line moved pretty quickly and next thing you know you are inside! There you see all the beautiful chocolate displays. They sell chocolate for all occasions: fondues, baking, gift sets, etc. Most people visit Chocolats Favoris for one signature treat however: a chocolate dipped ice cream cone!
Yes, you read that right! Your cone is literally dipped in liquid chocolate… That sentence may sound more erotic than I meant it to! lol Anyhow, it doesn’t stop there. You get to choose your ice cream flavour (ex: vanilla, orange, strawberry, etc.) and for dipping you get to choose from 12 different chocolate varieties:
– Milk chocolate,
– Dark chocolate,
– Hazelnut praline,
– Maple vanilla,
– Salted caramel, etc.
Oh but wait that’s not all! You can get a topping as well. I believe they had chocolate pieces, cookie crumbs and a few more options. In terms of sizes, I took a baby size since I didn’t want to go too wild, while most people ordered a Small. They are pretty filling portions since the chocolate is very rich.
If you don’t plan on eating your ice cream cone on the spot, make sure to ask for it in a cup! As I was in line it dawned on me that I didn’t plan this well! How would I bring back ice cream cones? I asked for cups and they gave me a little tray but it was not very secure! I cautiously drove home as to not tip the ice cream over. It was a success, the ice cream made it home safely!
All three of us went hard at work to eat the ice cream and OMG! It was divine! I opted for vanilla ice cream with dark chocolate and could not resist eating the entire dessert. So creamy, so chocolateyyyy.. Next time you feel like cheating, this is the place I recommend!
