At the checkout counter of Fry's yesterday, I noticed that the cost of the "Intense Dark" Ghirardelli chocolate bar that I bought was more than the cost of the power strip that I bought at the same time. Some people might say that this means the chocolate bar wasn't worth the outrageous sum that I paid for it. Those people clearly are heathen who have never practically passed out from sensory overload upon tasting the luscious goodness of fine chocolate, yo.

  1. But it's still Ghiradelli chocolate in the end. Anything from the Fisherman's Wharf factory is less than six degrees of separation from their touristic milk chocolate, IMHO. You're not truly mainlining chocolate until you buy Valrhona and melt it into baked goods. Too bad Joseph Schmitt's candies are no more. He was the guy behind Scharffenberger chocolate bars, which are about as 85% intense as anything you'd want to put directly into your mouth.

  2. there is no drug like Chocolate, lol, i dare say. well almost... glad to hear there are other chocoholics who worship the wonders of Chocolate.

  3. Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered blueberries.



  4. Perhaps it only suggests what crap the power strip was?

  5. The power strip is doing its job quite well, thank you, and will be doing its job quite well for the next few decades. The chocolate, on the other hand... err, what chocolate? A few minutes of utter pleasure, and then gone, forever. SIIIIIiiiiigh!
