A Picture of Chocolates

Yet another of the tastebud-tingling stops made during our trip to Portland was to Alma Chocolate.
A tiny little shop it was, with a front case crowded with chocolate in various forms. My aunt purchased two of everything for our tasting pleasure. I’ve got my hand on a rosewater caramel in the photo, which was surprisingly non-cloying and super smooth. The thin salted lavender caramel was also delightful, as was the one with bourbon in it. The Thai peanut butter cup boasted ginger, lime, and Thai chiles, and I actually liked it. The lemon-basil and raspberry ones were both highly memorable.
I’m bummed that I didn’t try every single one, but sometimes even the dessert stomach gets full.
