Sure, I Like Chocolate

It's so funny to me when I ask people if they like fancy chocolate, and they tell me, "Sure, I like chocolate."  Which is not an answer to the question I asked.

My favorite candy bar is back!  Some time ago they took my favorite candy bar, changed the size, the shape, the recipe, and increased its price.  In a shocking twist, customers didn't like that.  Or at least I'm assuming that, because they brought it back.

The price is still higher, but at least I can get it again.  Which I did while visiting a fancy shopping center in Las Vegas.  $4 is pricy for a candy bar, but I was on vacation.  It tasted exactly like I remembered.  It's about 33% bigger than a normal candy bar, and costs about 5 times as much.  But I was on vacation.

I promptly tried to share my joy with others, which is where I ran into the usual trouble.  I'm starting to think I should be asking, "Do you enjoy fine chocolate more than say, a Hershey's bar?"

Going forward, I'll probably only buy a couple a year.  It's my favorite fancy chocolate, but I only know that because it was cheap enough to buy once in a while.  There are a lot of fine chocolates in that price range, so I might as well try a few.
