    Last weekend, mom and I finally visited the last chocolate shop that was mentioned in the New York Times article last year.  We drove up the the west side of Lake Winnebago this time and then cut east to Manitowoc.  Can’t tell you if the town itself is cute or not since it was so cold and a frigid wind was blowing off the lake that we didn’t want to explore much.  We found Beernsten’s chocolate shop which is a gorgeous old store with an old fashioned lunch/ice cream parlor in the back and cases of chocolate and candy up front.  Mom had a toasty sandwich on rye and I had a mini can of cambpell’s alphabet soup which we followed up with vanilla ice cream topped with marshmallow and maple syrup.  It’s about a 2.5 hour drive from Madison, but there isn’t much else to do on a cold january day than enjoy a long drive in a warm car.
