Senryu : captivating jelly jars


it’s the jelly jars
I have no chance to be slim
captivating sweets

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

In Tucson, Chocolate Iguana has been around for 27 years with chocolate, candies and espresso.  Recently someone has bought their building to put in a coffee shop they’ve invested in and Chocolate Iguana finds themselves suddenly without a home.  They will be moving out on March 31, 2018.

Their chocolate truffles are to die for!  If you haven’t been, go now.  Who knows if or how long before they can find a place and reopen.

  1. They can move here, but the iguana would freeze their tush off. Seriously, our town lacks a business like this.


    1. You can start one! Make delicious chocolates! I found Joann’s carries chocolate molds so I’m actually thinking of making my own chocolates too — it might not be as good as chocolate iguana’s but it might be fun to do.


  2. Oh yummy. We have a favorite candy store here too. I was in there way too much when I was working. Now I can’t eat much of anything that’s good.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥


    1. I’m sorry, it sounds like you’re on a strict diet. Candy stores are fun even if it’s just for a look-see — I love how colorful some candies can be.


  3. We had this place called KRANDS CANDY CASTLE that was a house. But the house was a candy store where every room had a candy theme. The chocolate room, the hard candy room, the fancy schmantz room, whatever! And you would fill up your basket and ring it up where maybe the kitchen used to be. And behind the cashier was a big glass window where you could see em pouring white chocolate into rabbit molds for Easter candy. Yah, everything was made IN HOUSE. Epic goods. I guess the family who owned the place just kinda aged out and the kids didnt feel like continuing the family business so it folded. Damned shame cus it was most awesome.


    1. Wow, that place sounds terrific. It’s too bad that they closed. I would have loved to have visited. Do you have any pics of them or were you just a kid when you used to go?
