This week, Missouri's two bean-to-bar chocolate makers each made news with some fantastic recognition: Patric Chocolate won a Good Food Award from Slow Food Nation, while Askinosie Chocolate traveled to Tanzania and put itself on Oprah's radar. Check out both of Aimee Levitt's posts, but be prepared to add "purchase chocolate" as a necessary item on today's to-do list.

What else did we do this week?

Flavor Flav plans to spice up the fried chicken business.

Drink of the Week took a look back at the year 2010.

Fight Club Sandwich took to the streets, with a food truck battle for the ages.

While the Pi Pizza Truck hit a bureaucratic bump in Edwardsville.

Happy Hour Handbook hit up Cyrano's.

That's it for this week. Have a great weekend. Eat something good.
