If you are the type of person who is not giddy at the sight of a wall like this, then we can no longer be friends. A candy shop with floor to ceiling glass jars filled with candies of all shapes and sizes - what could be better?  Miette, in Hayes Valley in San Francisco has become one of our new favorite places in the city, and it's easy to see why.  

The specialized treats get their own pedestals, and rightly so.

It should go without saying that I wanted basically one of everything.  (Maybe even more than one.)

While I didn't take one of everything, I did take a pack of these chocolate wafers that are dark, rich, and a little bit salty.

I stayed far away from this disgusting corner, however.  Licorice.  Blech City, USA.

Along with the chocolate wafers, we picked up some lemon shortbread cookies, lavender drops, and nonpareils.

After I paid someone happened upon this sign for ice cream sandwiches and the wallet was broken out for the second time.

Valhrona chocolate sandwiched between two chocolate wafers met John's seal of approval.  Rather, he wolfed down the "best ice cream sandwich ever" in record time.  We made slightly bastardized versions the next two nights with Trader Joe's chocolate ice cream and the chocolate wafers from the store.  We're all out of cookies though, so it's back to Miette we go!  Shucks!
