    That would be fun. Then when some of us non-Seattle folks make the pilgrimage to the Tom Bihn factory, we're know where to find those yummies.

    I just checked Theo's web site and realize that Whole Foods in the Boston area only sells three flavors of the bars. I feel deprived.

    Could Seattle residents make a little maps of "Yummies in Seattle"?

    Much appreciated!

    NEVER TRIED THEO? I like going to their Fremont factory on weekends. You get to sample all of the different types of bars they have. A couple weeks ago I bought the "Chef Sessions" confection sampler, it was AMAZING. Sadly it seems to have disappeared from their website . I guess it was a valentines day special. My absolute favorite regular item is the Grey Salted Vanilla Caramels.

    ^ Yeah, that ^

    I've never tried Theo... I might have to go get one of theirs today and do a comparison.






    If anyone is thinking we've strayed from the OP's original post, we are still posting about things to OBSESS over!

    A couple of my favorite new bars are: Hawaiian Black Salt Caramel and Blood Orange Caramel (with Campari).

    Outside of the market - Georgio's makes good deli sandwiches, Specialties Cafe and Bakery makes these insanely delicious mini-quiches for breakfast as well as having standard bakery fare, and there's places I go to every once in awhile I can't remember the names of that cater to the East Indian, Chinese, Thai, and French foodie in me.

    LOTS of options!
    Is Vosges better than Theo? I've seen their bacon bar around and usually just chuckle and walk past it.

    Our wallets are much happier about that aspect of the move. Their food is so delicious we could eat there every day!

    Keeping on topic.. we're obsessed with Veraci Pizza in Ballard, Trophy Cupcakes, Theo Chocolate and Molly Moon's Ice Cream.

    I work downtown actually, within bussing distance of your new pad. I could tell you about some good places up here, but I don't know the area you're in at all.

    Sorry!

    Eric,

    Thank you for the mental assist but aren't we a little early in our relationship to be co-dependent already?

    ...of course don't think that angle didn't slip into a devious little corner of my mind!

    (happy birthday to me...happy birthday to me! dear, just ignore me, I will be out front stalking the UPS man!)

    Well, if she doesn't now you have the perfect excuse! It would be a waste otherwise, now wouldn't it?
