chocolates and canelles at clear flour

i haven't been to clear flour in quite a while, but i noticed some chocolates in little red boxes. they've got two flavors: a rocher-style (crushed almonds, i'm guessing) and coconut. has anyone tried these yet?

tried a canelle -- at 75 cents a pop they're expensive (they're the size of a 35mm film canister), but they're also quite tasty. never had one before, but i liked the caramelized exterior and moist, almost creamy interior (very eggy).

i also tried their chocolate chunk cookie. it's quite large with huge chunks/slabs of chocolate (tasted like milk chocolate to me). soft and slightly chewy but doesn't fall victim to gravity if you hold it on its edge. one of the happier cookies i've had in a while.

also tried their sour cherry brownie. how can anyone go wrong with that flavor combination; it's fine and very comforting.

their vollkornbrot is quite tasty -- encased in sunflower seeds with an extremely dense interior. it's a bit lighter in color that what i was expecting and with a looser crumb, but i liked it -- it's a lot easier to eat than the ones they sell mass-produced (at least i think it's a vollkornbrot that they sell at grocery stores). this looks like the kind of bread an extremist health-nut would eat; it tastes better than one would imagine.
