National Chocolate Caramel Day

“Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing.” ― Milton Snavely Hershey

It's National Chocolate Caramel Day!

I used to be everyone's worst nightmare at a coffee shop.

"I have a grande latte with one pump mocha, two pumps cinnamon dolce, soy milk, no whip, no toppings, with an extra sprinkle of love."

Oh, no, really: that's what it sounds like when the baristas call my drink order out.

But I love my local joint and - I'm pretty sure - they love me.

As a matter of fact, they made me a vegan drink in celebration of today's food holiday.

(Although it doesn't say "love" on the cup this time, and it has in the past . . .

. . . I still know it's there.)

Happy National Chocolate Caramel Day!
