(Note: I started writing this Fri or Sat morn.  I’ve had a very busy weekend and was not able to finish it in one sitting but was determined to share this with you all).

The other day, I think it was Sunday, I placed an online order for a [Link Removed] from a fellow-ett Fab40er, Cynthia.

To my surprise, I received it, from Hawaii, on Wednesday!  I have to say, I was impressed with how fast I received my order.  There are things I’ve ordered from places not all that far from me and rarely received my order that fast!

Okay, Okay, I’ll get to the chocolate!

There has to be 16 pieces of [Link Removed]  I dug into it ASAP so not sure of the exact number, but it was very generous.  NOTE: reading Cynthia's blog, she states 12 but I really think there were more estatic

On the lid there’s a printout of what all of them are.  My first was the butterfly!  Chocolate with caramel inside - lifetime favorite!  OUTSTANDING, rich chocolate with delicious caramel - I always look for the caramel ones first, ha!

Mike tried one today when he got home from work and need to find out what he got and how he liked it. (never did find out, but he said he really enjoyed it).

Later this afternoon I had the white chocolate with some sort of macadamia nut cream.... TO DIE FOR  - melted in my mouth!!  It reminded me of a high class peanut butter cup or mallow cup (remember them?) like piece.  No where near in taste, just the way it's made with 'stuff' inside.  I would take an entire box of them alone!  I think I have a new favorite!

They were my two favorites.  I believe and Cynthia can correct me on this, there were two layers of each of the pieces and again, I believe 7 or 8 different ones.

What a lovely Mother’s day treat for myself and Mike also shared in the tasteful pleasure!

Taking notice of Cynthia’s Fab40 page, I see several Fab40er’s took advantage of her May Special.

If you can too, I highly recommend and you will not be disappointed.  What a nice little special gift (big in flavor) for yourself... shipping’s included, too!  Can’t beat it!

The other day I told Mike that when we have a special occasion, Cynthia is our candy lady heart!

Jean

    • Jean, I just came downstairs and turned on the computer and all I have to say is - THANK YOU! I put my heart and soul into these confections and this kind of feedback sets the tone for my entire week!! That was very considerate of you to take the time to write a review. Thank you doesn’t even cover the way this makes me feel.

      I’m so very grateful!
      Cynthia

    • Cynthia, my pleasure & well deserved!

      Hope some that read it visit your site and take advantage of your special.  I think it’s well worth it and we all deserve to treat ourselves to the good things in life that good people like yourself have to offer.

    • Veggie - this will sound strange but thank you for stealing my blog!  

      I got my box of chocolates on Weds as well.  I have had a rough week emotional and getting a package from HI is a great pick me up.  When I saw the box I felt so special to see the gold and white satin ribbon.  

      I have one request - can the box come with a time sensitive lock and only get 2 pieces at a time then it locks down?  LOL!  I wanted to try them all but I have limited myself to 2 pieces a day.  

      I have to say I wasn’t excited to try the chipolte but I figured to try then decide.  It was so amazing!  The heat was good and not over the top.  Very wonderful and I will be trying Cynthia’s mole recipe now.  

      the Caramel butterfly was fun and so tasty.  The salty then sweet was delicious.  I had this once before but it was too salty. Not this time.  

      I totally agree with Veggie on the white chocolate/macademia square was silky and smooth.  The flavors were a good partnership.  

      Every other was just the same but I am running out of room and don’t want to leave out my triple thumbs up!!! thank you Cynthia for sharing your passion.  heartheartheart
