"Friday Night Frolic" - Chocolate Is As Chocolate Does


It melts in your mouth, a smooth and silky texture. It rolls along your tongue and awakens your senses. It makes you giddy with its seratonin-like feel-good molecules. It can be both sweet and bitter. Hershey, Godiva, Lindt, Valrhona. USA, Belgian, Swiss, French. But a chocolatier is not a chocolatier is not a chocolatier.

And pure chocolate is to mousse as stringband is to symphony. The deconstruction of a whipped, velvety articulation that defies definition. Nuanced enough to delight varied palates.

To wit: Carolina Chocolate Drops.

Ingredients: Beat box, fiddle and banjo. Simple, no?

And what they can do with a jug and kazoo:

Sweet and bitter, yet comfort food.

Keep wrapped tightly and store in cool, dry place. Allow to slowly melt on tongue. Relish the lingering finish. Warning: may cause addiction.
