While we were in San Francisco, we managed to steal away Monday afternoon to do a few little fun things before we drove back home. After all, we didn't want our whole impression of such a neat city to be derived from the inside of the Fort Mason Center and the interior of the SF Marriott!
The only place I suggested insisted we visit was the famous Miette patisserie. It has the same name as my little fur-person, and it seemed just as sweet. I was so happy that they were open on Monday (and we were met at the door by the lovely, gingham-clad manager who happened to know me from the blog!).
It's safe to say that our visit there made me incredibly, dorkily, sweet-things-ecstatic.
The wrappings and foil and boxes and bags were almost too good. There were so many candies there I had never even seen! And then a few that I had, but only once or twice before, like those jewel-colored pansy chocolates on the scale below:
Here's our bag of goods! And a close-up of these beautiful, beautiful bee chocolate bars we brought home.
These are the two candies that we're really hoarding:
Seriously, we're both interested in proposing candy-marriage to them. I found the Napoleon sour candies online, so the hoarding can relax a little as far as those are concerned. But if anyone has a source for those incredible, so-rich-you-can-seriously-eat-one-for-dessert foil wrapped strawberries, feel free to send it on!
They're so beautiful, it's really a little heartbreaking to eat them right now.
