Show me state

We just had really old and dear friends visit us in L.A. We met about 18 years ago when we all lived in NYC. Back then the four of us were young and unmarried. Today we’re married, have kids and I think we look pretty good for our age. Our friends have been living in Columbia, Missouri for several years.

The new Missourians came baring wonderful chocolates from The Candy Factory in Columbia, MO. They brought the shop’s signature katys (which are like turtles) as well as some adorable chocolates in the shape of Missouri. Too bad they got gobbled up before I could take a photo.

In honor of our Missourians, here are some fun things available from the Show Me state. You don’t even have to get in the car.

Tonight I also read about a Missouri Chocolate maker named Patric Chocolates. David Leibovitz describes Patric Chocolates, which is based in Columbia Missouri.

Thank you friends. Sad to see you go. Hope to see you soon.
