Ok, so here’s the thing.  We’re kind of batting 1000 on having places we mention on here go belly up.  Bella’s?  Gone.  O Mai Vietnamese?  Gone.  Cuba Linda was gone for awhile, but now appears to be back.  So.  Yeah.  Is it just us?  Should we stop visiting?  LOL.  Sadly, it’s probably mostly a sign of the current economy.  Downer.

Anyway – today I wanted to share with you something I had the EXTREME pleasure to buy for The Omaha Critic a couple of weeks ago.  I am a BIG fan of the downtown Farmer’s Market in Omaha.  Yeah, I’ve hit the one out at Village Point a few times (and would love for it to be bigger).  I’ve also hit the one that was in Millard for a while.  But downtown?  It has my heart.  It’s just a whole experience.  SO, we pack up early on Saturday AM and head down there to get good veggies and hang out for a bit.

Anyway.  Where was I?  (Did we mention that The Critical Wife has had a baby and therefore does not always have her shinola together when posting anymore?) 

Oh yeah.  Chocolate.

Zola Chocolates, to be precise. 

Now let me be clear.  I am not a typical woman.  I am not a woman who craves chocolates once a month (or all month), or who hides special chocolates away to enjoy without the clamoring of her children for a bite.  Really? I’m not a chocolate person.  Really.

I know, I know…it’s strange.

Zola Chocolates, however?  I would strongly consider selling off a kid for some of those!  They are absolutely AWESOME.  I bought a small sampler of six truffles, with two extra salted caramel truffles, KNOWING my Hubby would love them. 

Well, here’s news.  My husband is the most generous, sharing, loving man in the world, because he shared every one of those truffles with me, even though they are the most amazing chocolates either of us have ever had!

Each truffle was a special flavor…Dark Velvet, Peruvian Coffee, Sweet Heat, Pecan Praline, Earl Grey,  and Milk and Honey.  Each one a little ball of happiness…a firmer outside, but as you bite into it, sweet, soft, chocolatey, happiness-in-a-ball.

Honestly, I just can’t go on about them enough. 

SO…get thyself to their website to find the location closest to you, or to their spot down in the Old Market on Saturday mornings, and try some.  You will NOT be sorry. 

My favorite at this point is still the salted caramel, but the sweet heat, the milk and honey, and the Peruvian Coffee are all right up there too!  (I think this week I might have to buy all the other flavors, so we can at least say we’ve had them all.  You know.  Purely for the purposes of reporting on this website.  Mmhmm.  :-)  )

    We had wanted to review Stavie’s on 72nd in Ralston the other week, but when we got there, they were “closed for remodeling”. We went once a long while back, but never got around to reviewing it. I thought there were a few more, but I can’t remember at the moment. It must be the economy.
