Does it get up and dance?
I'm not into chocolate for its own sake, but I do like to visit a locally-owned cafe called Moonstruck: A Chocolate Cafe. I like cocoa and I like other desserts.*
Now, I've written about Moonstruck before when they tried to get all corporate and hoity toity. They listened to customer feedback and went back to normal - for awhile.
Now, my little bro and other members of my family, including Mr. RK, adore the chocolate bars from this cafe. They're not cheap ($3.50) but sometimes I send them down to California or bring them home.
Darth Weasel was nice enough to take me and Mr. RK there for my birthday, and gave me a gift card. When we went, I noticed a new chocolate bar for $7.
You read that correctly.
I went last night for a sundae and low and behold, they are replacing the $3.50 bars with a $7 bar.
Now, mind you, I know you get what you pay for, and dessert is no exception. But $7?
That's more than a dollar per inch.
At that price, I have to ask: what does this chocolate bar do for me? Instant orgasm? Make me happier, shinier, and nicer? Does it get up and dance?
PS A tip for the uninitiated: don't do a Google image search for "dancing chocolate" without expecting some, um, surprises.
