Hip Hop Chocolate
I just received a set of turntable lollipops from Marcus Gray CEO/Cultural Engineer of LA based The Original Hip Hop Chocolates. Here's his deal: he molds chocolate out of everything Hip Hop: Adidas, Boom Boxes etc. His operation is all handmade and totally guerrilla. It wouldn't be hardcore otherwise now would it? I love the photos of Pos from De La Soul, Crazy Legs, and other Legendary Hip Hop heads "Representing" with the candy. Word.

Mother Knows Best

Since gaining membership into the International Sorority of Motherhood 2.5 years ago, my respect for mothers, as well as for chocolate, has grown exponentially. I wish I could deliver a box of The Sucre Mother's Day Collection to each and every mom as it will remind our dear mothers of the important things in life: to stop and smell the rose petal infused milk chocolate ganache; that if life gives us lemons, to indulge in sweet milk chocolate blended with fresh lemon zest! And most importantly, that life, like red raspberry encased in rich dark chocolate, can be bitter sweet. And at the end of the day, or box, it's all about love. Happy Mother's Day!

A Box Full of Easter Joy
I'd love to meet the bunny responsible for such an artful collection of gorgeous chocolate eggs, I bet he's quite the sophisticate! This year's Easter selection from Norman Love features limited edition flavors such as coconut cream, malted milk and vanilla cream and come handsomely packaged in a gorgeous green box as baskets of course are child's play.

Sweetly Demented
So, this young chocolate maker named "Sivonne Imnottelling" contacted me today about their brand new confectionary line called Sweetly Demented, ranging from the "morbid, shabby chic & just plain rude." There are chocolate bird skulls, brains, hypno pops and...well, you'll have to see for yourself. I find it creative, dark and charming in a raw, art school kind of way.
