I laughed with incredulity when I spied this packet in a German store. What the deuce?
Leaves of chocolate to place between bread. As in a sandwich. So you eat bread and chocolate. Could anything be more unappetizing? I like my chocolate unadulterated, thank you.
Except when it’s in a chocolate mousse. Or a hot chocolate. Of course, I have been known to dip strawberries and marshmallows in warm chocolate and I’ve been girding up to try chocolate-coated ants, more as a dare to myself than anything. Mud cake. Obviously. Then there’s chocolate croissants…mmm.
Actually, I suppose bread is quite similar to croissant.
But, still there’s something not quite right. Embededness? Integration? I don’t want a hard slab of chocolate perched on my bread any more than I want one in my croissant. No, count me out. I’ll take the leaves and the bread but I’ll keep them separate – as habit demands.
