I came home from work one day and found all my scarves tied up in knots. I still don’t have a clear answer as to why, and the culprit still has to be dealt with. (Is withholding chocolate an appropriate punishment, or is that too harsh?)
The silver lining: I’m always on the lookout for new props and backgrounds for chocolate photos, and colorful knotted scarves were too good to pass up. Off I went to my chocolate drawer and back I came with Chocolove Coffee Crunch in Dark Chocolate:
(To anyone I may have shared this chocolate with afterwards: No. The chocolate is not resting directly on the scarves that have been, to quote my mother, “who knows where” since they’ve last been washed. Very clean hands and a very clean paper towel were involved with the making of this photo.)
But let’s backtrack. First, the wrapper:
I saw a quote posted on a friend’s Facebook timeline recently:
It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of a recreational activity.
After I finished laughing, the realization hit me that I would always be at the back of the line. My family doesn’t even own a coffee pot. However, that doesn’t mean I dislike coffee. In fact, I rather like it…when paired with chocolate.
Chocolove Coffee Crunch is definitely being added to my list of chocolates to (if possible) buy again. And again. I like the fact that it isn’t too dark, as I like my coffee with milk and sugar. The coffee bits are big enough to give the chocolate a fun texture but small enough that I can easily break the bar into perfect little square shapes, each with a little heart on top.
Bonus: Each Chocolove wrapper has a love poem on the inside.
Another Bonus: Chocolove makes mini bars, which are a great addition to giftsets or an excellent way to sample new flavors.
Final verdict: Highly recommended!
Until next time,
