Here are a few photos from this week's adventures:

This is Jacque Genin's chocolate shop, where we picked up a bar of Madagascar 71 percent. Mmmm, that was good!

Here’s Patrick Roger’s artsy chocolate boutique. You can look at the chocolate in the glass counters, but ne touchez pas.

That's a work of art (and it tastes divine, too).

We'll discover what makes French chocolate so amazing without getting political. (Well, we’ll try.) And we'll eat way too much sugar in the podcast. We’re doing it for journalism. My hands are still shaking as I type these words. Please tune in now.
