You know Terry’s Chocolate Orange?
The first time I ever had one I was so enamored with it. Why? Well, because I thought the chocolate actually burst threw the foil, completely intact, and I thought that was wicked awesome. I totally missed the tagline “Whack and unwrap.” You could say I was disappointed with this revelation…and I’ve secretly wanted to invent such a product since my dreams were dashed. However, without some sort of explosive I can’t figure out how. I’m welcome to suggestions.
Anyway, I opened up my chocolate orange from xmas today, courtesy of Ali (they come in mint now, which is great because I hate orange flavoured chocolate) and as I marveled at how neatly the slices unfolded, I wished that could be the case when we hit ourselves against things, or when things explode (metaphorically speaking). Sadly, that is not the case. Nothing is ever neat, and I guess no one would buy a product that held crushed pieces of chocolate.
Just been one of those days.
