    Unless there are $2,000 in gold coins in that chocolate...NO.

    Like the old saying goes "A fool and their money are soon parted."

    If I say my chocolate is worth $2000 a pound, how much can I sell before people stop buying it for the novelty?

    What I like about the story is that they sent a reporter who doesn't like chocolate to comment on the taste. Their next story will involve sending a beer drinker to comment on the wines of Napa.

    For 2000 dollars a pound it better listen to my girlfriend complain, rub my back, and cook me dinner!

    What killed me is the part where they show normal homestyle candy making and call it "labor intense" and claims it justifies the cost. BUWAHAHA. I do not pity the morons that pay for this stuff.

    Man is that stuff delicious. Every time I do something wrong, I get a pound for my wife to make up for it. Lately she's been very picky so I had to hock the yacht. But it's worth it, every time I get her a pound, she lets me have a piece.

    Want a nice chocolate fix for cheap? My wife picked up a tub of Harry London Cookie Joys (mint chocolate flavor). They are milk chocolate and dark chocolate with crunchy cookie pieces. Addictive! The mint flavoring is not as overwhelming as a Junior Mint, the chocolate flavor is richer, and the crunchy parts are great.

    She paid $1.50 for a 7 oz box and they are well worth it. Of course, she bought them at a store known for offering over-stocks at deep discounts, including food, candies, condiments, etc.

    As far as Tsu and I are concerned, chocolate doesn't get any better than Nirvana Belgian Chocolate. It sells for about $44 a pound.

    We sampled every chocolate that we could get in Europe before landing on Nirvana.
