Exuberantly Fruity / Exuberantemente Afrutado

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

Our friends' son and daughter-in-law are visiting Fuengirola from England. They brought us a very elegant box of chocolates made by Hotel Chocolat. The selection is called "Exuberantly Fruity."

The description on the label: "17 tangs of real fruit balanced with luscious chocolate." The menu displays luscious-looking chocolates and mouth-watering descriptions.

The box arrived just three days ago, but I can't find any chocolates. How could that have happened?!?

To paraphrase Winston Churchill:
"It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an empty box of chocolates."


El hijo y nuera de nuestros amigos estan visitando Fuengirola de Inglatera. Nos dieron una caja de chocolates muy elegante. La empressa es Hotel Chocolats. La colección en la caja se llama "Exuberantly Fruity" (Exuberantemente Afrutado).

La descripción en la etiqueta: "17 sabores de frutas reales equilibrada con el chocolate delicioso." El menú muestra deliciosos chocolates y descripciones.

La caja llegó hace sólo tres días, pero no puedo encontrar chocolates. ¿¡¿Cómo pudo haber ocurrido eso?!?

Parafraseando a Winston Churchill:
"Es una acertijo envuelto en un misterio dentro de una caja vacía de chocolates."

      These are excellent chocolates... I have a vague memory of them; they passed by so quickly.

      I don't usually like fruity chocolates. These are exceptional.

  3. If I had a nickel for every time I've been called Exuberantly Fruity.

      I do, too... I'd call you Exuberantly Fruity right now, but then I'd have to send you a nickel.

  4. Chocolates evaporate when after the box is open, you must consume them quickly, or they will be gone before you know it.

      I agree. My friend Lidia, a wine lover, says "Fruit Forward." I'll have to change that to "Exuberantly Fruit-ily(?) Forward"!

      And since these were all fruit-infused, they counted as 17 servings of fruit!

  7. Glad folks know how to treat you right! That was great gift. Probably a good thing that it is not automatically refilled, eh?

      I wonder if I should have given them the empty box.

      Well, I think we're probably the most exuberantly fruity people they've ever met.
