Easter Chocolate in France and Spain

It's Easter and the chocolate shop windows in Europe are full of great sights.  We see a few in Paris and San Sebastian and they're enough to delight and entice us.  We start in Paris, looking in the shops and windows of some famous chocolate makers that we pass as we walk through the city.

After the first few, we turn on our chocolate radar and spot more and more chocolate shops done up for Easter.  In one shop, La Maison du Chocolat, we are told that the large chocolate egg weighs 6 kg. (13.2 pounds).

Even the department stores are getting into the chocolate-for-Easter spirit.  The new food section at Printemps is full of delightful options in their various shops and departments.

Moving on from Paris to San Sebastian, Spain, we see even more great chocolate in celebration of the holiday.

 We're truly enjoying our chocolate tour and look forward to sharing more of this trip in later blogs.
