I would like to wish all TE members a very Happy Valentine's Day, and offer you some NYC chocolates. :-)
In souvenir shops and large department stores, you can find a variety of chocolates and candies with NYC themes. This display in Macy's caught my eye.
If you are a chocolate lover - like I am - there are plenty of delicious ways to get your chocolate fix here in NYC. There are tours dedicated solely to chocolate shops. There are restaurants where the main ingredient in all of the courses is chocolate. There is an annual Chocolate Show that even includes a fashion show with models wearing chocolate clothes and accessories!
Of course, you can always pick up a simple piece or two at a local shop. :-)
Be good to yourself this Valentine's Day, and please enjoy the NYC chocolate bar of your choice. :-)

I'll take all the plain milk chocolate bards, although, if they had filbert nuts or pistachios in them, I would prefer those. You can have the dark chocolate. What a clever composition!
Warm regards, and Happy Valentine's Day.

Pour ma part, je prends le chocolat noir, meilleur pour la santé! Lorsque j'ai visité New York, j'étais avec deux copines, dont une adore le chocolat. Je vais lui faire suivre ta photo avec la description, et comme elle y retourne prochainement, elle saura quoi faire lors de son prochain séjour!
Belle photo colorée et très attrayante. Joyeuse St-Valentin à toi aussi.

All these flavors are great. My favorite pick is almond milk chocolate. Brenda, a creative composition showing these colorful wrappers with delicious candy in them . I like the way the icons of NYC are shown. Sharpness and colors are superb and the best gift to chocolate lovers.

Cute photos of this a nice day.
Do you have the right to chocolate, and those who are not currently in love. :)
Beautiful and original photos.

yummy..I spoil myself with some chocolate also from time to time. I go for Almond chocolate from this collection or perhaps a small piece of dark chocolate together with Cognac after a Saturday dinner. Beautiful wrapping, perhaps a good opportunity to be a chocolate wrapping collector from all the world?(but i already collect beach sand from all over the world) Anyhow, nice presentation and note of genuine NYC products, Tfs!
Have a nice weekend.

Very original shot for Valentine's day. In the thumbnail I was thinking it was tourist map of NYC. The close-up framing was good to focus on the colors and the pattern.

A-ha ! Chocolate - a panacea for nearly all ills !!
but chocolate clothes - well I've heard it all now !
A strong image here, wonderful colours, and flavours, on display, and a delightful pride in your city, as evidenced by the large initials and images - lovely !
( Thanks for stopping off at the various WS I have had tried of late, nice to know someone is watching !! )

I was really attracted to the colors and the pile up effect of the chocolates. IMHO, this could've been more stunning with a tighter frame emphasizing more on the patterns and lines. A lovely post regardless, send some over here! =)

Hello my dear Brenda
I overlooked this impressive image.
Clear and sharp presentation is as usual. Vivid fresh color touch is also marvelous. Thanks for your sharing with your good work and have a good day,
Takero in Tokyo

Having just posted that picture from the shopping cart rolling down the snack aisle, this one of yours had the same appeal. :) Not only do we have that in common, but yes...I love chocolate! :)) This may have been a Valentines Day shot, but it holds interest all year long if you ask me. Love the repeating patterns and stacked display, full of color and sweet, chocolatey goodness...and a that specific NYC advertising. A 'can't miss' on every level. Have a wonderful week ahead. Take good care.
