How do you eat an $8 chocolate bar?
I shared this with Kris the other day as he’s the biggest choc-a-holic I know, but it was too amusing an anecdote not to revisit. We’re pretty used to amusing and informative scribblings on the back of our food packaging by now, but Gena over at Big City, Little Kitchen (I can relate to that title) wins with this one:
A few days ago I was able to take a close look at some of Vosges’s exotic chocolate offerings. I liked them so much that I bought another, the Barcelona bar, at my local Whole Foods. On the back, I had expected to see an ingredients list, and possibly health information, but I was surprised when I found instructions. Yes, how to eat chocolate!
Kris’ response to the above question was the best, however… I’ll tell you how I would enjoy an $8 chocolate bar: while running, because I must have stolen it. Considering the chocolate works out to $42/pound, that sounds about right!
Eek! I ate two of these this past week alone. Turns out, I’m not a fan of “ordinary” chocolate. But the organic/exotic/over-priced stuff? Bring it on!
