I am in New York right now, where I am supposed to be writing. I haven't done any work though and I'm actually a little worried about it.
Luckily I stopped by Chocolate Bar on 8th Avenue earlier today and bought this chocolate bonbon called an Atomic. Isn't it pretty? It's huge too. It's half the size of my palm. Anyway it's good and rich and sweet and is totally calming me down.
"PBJ: Leave the bread behind! Crunchy peanutbutter & grape jelly enrobed in dark chocolate." I have been nibbling at it all day. The peanut butter is that oaty freshly ground kind and luckily there's only a hint of jelly, because otherwise the whole thing would be too sweet.
Chocolate Bar is this mod little chocolate shop with not entirely friendly Amanda Hesser-ish chocolatier hipsters. I have been meaning to do a report on a chocolate crawl (Jacques Torres, Dylan's Candy bar, Li-Lac, Chocolate Bar) but I haven't had time because of my stupid work.
I can't believe the amount of work I have to accomplish so I can continue to buy things I love. I'm kind of in a terrible mood.
Price: an Atomic is $5.75. You can get good stuff for less though.
