I bought the March 2012 issue of the Food Network Magazine this week. I usually buy a copy of this magazine from time to time, mainly if what's on the cover interests me. I have to tell you this issue captured my attention quickly. It's deemed "The Chocolate Issue." I not a real die hard chocoholic if you will, but I do love to indulge occasionally.
Low and behold I found an article titled "United States of Chocolate." This article mentioned America's best spots for chocolate lovers, from coast to coast. How awesome is that? I'm going to list a few of my favorites from each region. Although I've never eaten at any of this places, it's definitely on my to do list.

Chocolate Moose, Len Libby , Scarborough, ME
I had the pleasure to live in Caribou, Maine for 3 years. I was always afraid of the big moose. It's a good thing I never had the pleasure to actually come into close encounters with one. But, this moose is a 1,700 pound life sized moose named Lenny that's made of real milk chocolate. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on these antlers. Luckily, you can't take a big bite out of Lenny, but you can buy smaller one pound versions to enjoy. Check out their website here.
