The gold box was wrapped in red paper with brown swirly designs and a satin ribbon with "Leonidas" written in gold. It traveled from Belgium to Kansas, a gift to me from Natalie and Ryan. I waited until after the party to open it. Belgium chocolates, made with 100% pure cocoa butter since 1913. The smell inside is to die for, purely intoxicating. I ate one. Then two. Now I'm up to three and a half. Is it wrong to eat an entire box? Maybe, so I'll settle for the smell. Each little bite was pure delight, the creamy centers melting in my mouth. Ryan said I would have to toss the box if I didn't eat them within seven days because they were made fresh. Is he crazy? They'll probably last three days!
