White chocolate doesn't help, cause it's not really chocolate.
But milk and dark chocolate does the thing and makes the migraines a little less painful.
A year or so ago I noticed some commercials about Brookside Chocolates and was intrigued.
And was appalled.
At CVS, three months ago I stopped, literally, in the middle of the store and said. "No fucking way." The damn tiny bags were $5.99. EACH! Granted it's 7 ounces of chocolate in there, but $5.99 + tax for a small bag of chocolate that I didn't even know if I liked was out of the question. I bitched to Hubby (who was in the store with me) about the price the entire time.
Pretty pissed and I started to disdane this company for their apparent stingy-ness.
Well then, last week while I was grocery shopping for the second time (all by myself, go me!) I saw the little over-priced bags of taunting chocolates.
And they were on sale!
2 bags for $4!
$2 a bag, yeah I can do that. $2 is not too much to try something new and might not like.
To make it even better there were 2 different flavours.
Welp, I plopped one bag of pomegranate and another of acai into my cart and finished up grocery shopping.
Will I spend $6 on a single bag? No fucking way, but I might pick up a bag in 6 months if I see it in a 2 for $4 sale again.
Will I spend $6 on a single bag? No, but again if it's in the 2 for $4 deal I'll pick it up.
Overall it's not bad chocolate, but for a "high end" chocolate as it markets itself to be, it's all fluff and bull.
I'd love to have all 3 chocolates in 3 separate bowls, sharing while I play D&D, sharing some sparkling fruit juices, in a foreign land. Kinda a scene setter. But I won't cry if it doesn't ever happen.
I would like to try the Gogi one, maybe that holds the "wow" factor I'm missing in these 2.
I wasn't compensated by Brookside, or even approached to review their products. It was all done cause I was curious.
