We love to put cocoa mulch in our garden. It degrades fast, looks pretty and smells divine (although be careful if you have dogs - if they eat it they can get quite ill). The local garden centers run out of this in springtime, so the only way to get it now is by going to the factory to pick it up (call first to be sure they have it). It is near downtown Chicago, and Paul and I went one day when he was off work. The first thing we noticed was the heavenly, chocolate smell emanating from the air vents of the building. It was literally like walking past Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. We didn't know until we got there that they have a little chocolate shop on the premises. Yum!
