AS PART OF THIS YEAR’S Whidbey Island Farm Tour, I stopped by Marie Lincoln’s Chocolate Flower Farm. This nursery started out specializing in dark-colored flowers and soon expanded to include all sorts of chocolatey goodness, like lotions, soaps, and jams. At a table near the entrance, I tried out a chocolate mint herbal tea, then moved on to check out the chocolate-vanilla swirl and Neapolitan gardens.
The place smells as amazing as you might imagine. But inside the gift shop the scent intensifies tenfold, thanks to Marie’s homemade chocolate candles.
