Souvenir from Chicago-Fannie May Chocolate

My first taste of a Fannie May mint meltaway happened this past Christmas while visiting my boyfriend’s family in Chicago. I’ve always been fond of the combination of mint and chocolate together so when my BF showed me the box of chocolates his mom had given him, I was more than eager to give it a try. And oh my, those bite-size chocolates sure were good! I mean, I thought a Peppermint Patty was already something pretty special but after one bite of a mint meltaway, well, let's just say, I melted. I must have achieved some sort of mint-chocolatey-nirvana because I haven't picked up a Peppermint Patty ever since. To put it bluntly, a Peppermint Patty simply does not compare to a meltaway. The meltaways really are just that...melt-in-your-mouth-delectable-creaminess without being overly sweet.
If you’re in the Chicago area, then lucky you because there are several Fannie May retail shops in the vicinity. If you’re like me however, and live out on the West Coast where there are no Fannie May locations, then plan a trip out to Chicago and stop by one of the shops (something I did just last month!). If that's not possible though, you can always order some minty goodness from their website:

Hello all

"What does Islam say about war?"

Like Christianity, Islam permits fighting in self-defence, in defince of religion, or on the part of those who have been expelled forcibly from their homes. It lays down strict rules of combat which include prohibitions against harming civilians and against destroying crops, trees and livestock. As Muslims see it, injustice would be triumphant in the world if good men were not prepared to risk their lives in a righteous cause. The Quran says:

'Fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but do not transgress limits. God does not love transgressors.' (2.190)

'If they seek peace, then seek you peace. And trust in God for He is the One that heareth and knoweth all things.' (8.61)

War, therefore, is the last resort, and is subject to the rigorous conditions laid down by the sacred law. The term jihad literally means 'struggle', and Muslims believe that there are two kinds of jihad. The other jihad is the inner struggle which everyone wages against egotistic desires, for the sake of attaining inner peace.
