So, I’m sitting here at my favorite lounge drinking Tanqueray 10 and eating a brownie the size of my skull, reminiscing about childhood (must be the heady combo of booze and baked goods) and thinking about my love affair with chocolate.
Just like there is a vast difference between lovin’ and good lovin’, there is also a vast difference between chocolate and good chocolate and –not unlike the aforementioned good lovin’– it is readily available on the open market from the talented and enterprising French…if you’ve got the cash.
Case in point: this beyond delicious “luxury box” of French chocolates. My friends, this is the cocoa buttery equivalent of being trapped on a desert island with the entire heterosexual contingency of the Oxford AND Cambridge rowing teams (and really, two guys on a desert island ought to be plenty for anybody) and an endless supply of hypoallergenic baby oil.
The holiday pack from Zchocolat is possibly the most luxe take on the traditional box-o-chocolates I’ve ever had the good fortune to stumble across.
Check out their chocolate list here but beware…you’ll probably need a cigarette afterwards, or at least a shower.
