Recently my friend Chris over at The Peche hooked up with the nice people at Scharffen Berger and a bunch of folks were supposed to get coupons for money off chocolate, which of course would’ve been swell. Instead, though, the Scharffen Berger folks sent out a bunch of actual chocolate, because they are nice. And I’d been hearing from all over the place about how this is the best chocolate, and totally worth $5/bar (the regular price).
You know how I feel about chocolate. I was not convinced I’d find anything worth $5/bar, though.
But I got my box from them and I’ve gotta say, it was… pretty stupendous. I began to understand the fuss. Not that my wallet (not to mention my hips…) are going to support regular purchase of chocolate at that price point, but… yeah. I get it now.
But check out Amazon: Right now you can get a 24-pack of Scharffen Berger Nibby Dark, Extra Dark, or Semisweet bars for under $20 each. That’s less than a buck a bar! I don’t know if this is a price mistake or what, but at this price point, I’m darn near powerless.
