Chocolate Witchery

Made the mistake of walking down the snack aisle on a recent trip to the grocery store while hungry. I think there’s a name for this…Hunger Game of Carts? No, too long. How about Hunger-mongering? No, too ominous…never mind, I digress. Back to the blasted candy aisle:

I took a wrong turn and there I was hungry, alone, candy everywhere I turned. Sunk a little deeper into regret by making eye contact with this little beauty:

Chocolate 2

Moonstruck indeed! The packaging bewitched me. Seriously, the marketing team must be a gang of witches who craft these mind control spells and hex people into making purchases they never intended. I transformed into some kind of famished chocolate-bot and before I knew what I was doing the candy bar was nestled gently between the bread and the cheddar cheese in my shopping cart. No, I’m not kidding. The last thing I remember before I came to in my car with a stomach ache and chocolate wrappers strewn about was reading this on the packaging:

Moonstruck

It’s only natural to desire that which is irresistible. Namely Moonstruck Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Almond. It’s an idyllic combination of the sweet, the salty, and the very dark. Follow your dark thoughts. They know where they’re going.

Give in to your cravings.

Apparently my dark thoughts are drunk driving aimlessly at speeds of 100 mph because if a chocolate hangover is a *thing* that might explain what I’m experiencing. Dear buyer, do beware. Ridiculously delicious dark chocolate sorcery lurking about the shelves on aisle 6.

  1. Is it wicked to shop chocolate aisles? Because then I am very wicked. Here is a store in a nearby city in which I’ve found your very brand of Moonstruck. http://www.drchocolate.com/ It’s a castle (well, a castle in the sense that it’s on a busy city block) devoted to all things chocolate. Four floors of chocolate.

    Am all over artisan chocolate, so bring on the witchery. Great find, Sandra. Have enjoyed “meeting” (maybe stalking is a better word, haha) over at Kerbey’s. It is you we have to thank for her Tender Loving post? 😉

  2. I love the design on the wrapping – it’s bewitching! (Ha, I’ll stop now.)

    My husband recently went through the Easter clearance aisle at the market and came home with three bags of candy and chocolate… I gave him dirty glares as I stuffed them in my face.
    Chocolate hangovers? Definitely a thing.
