Our weekly roundup of chocolate related news, politics and products. See what’s happened every Sunday.
Happy Macaron Day
Just Add Diamonds
How do you make a $49,000 Easter bunny? Skill and a nuanced palate, that’s how. Oh and diamonds. You’ll need diamonds.
No Girls Allowed
Yorkie bars used to say “it’s not for girls” right on the packaging. Now they say “man fuel for man stuff”. This wasn’t always the case though and here you can see how the bar developed from mere ideation to confrontational marketing. XX chromosomes need not apply. Go eat a girls chocolate bar. Something light and crispy like a Mr.Big.
Some monster has made Twix into spreadable Twix. It’s not a recipe: it’s a product. It’s probably an oil product and will give you diabetes but, on the other hand, it’s got biscuit chunks in it. I’m sure eating just one cup is fine.
the $100 Chocolate Bar
What constitutes a $100 chocolate bar? Read this article on Woodblock Chocolate to find out. Actually, I got a hot tip that’ll net you another $49,000 on top of that. Meet me at the clubhouse after school and I’ll fill you in.
That’s all the news for this week! See you next Sunday.
