confetti

Yesterday I visited Said, the uber famous and super delicious chocolate shop/factory in San Lorenzo. The weather in Rome has been heating up, so I knew it was my last chance to eat some fine chocolate before it becomes impractical/unnatural to do so. Fortunately, the end of dark chocolate season does not mean I have to give up on Said altogether. They also make another favorite of mine, albeit a less popular confection than chocolate. I’m speaking of confetti, sugar covered almonds that are included in every wedding goodie bag in Italy and Italian-America. I must admit, they are fairly gross, but I like eating a lot of gross things (skittles, gummy bears, sour patch kids). To be fair, Said’s confetti isn’t the stale junk you find most places. It’s high quality gross.
