There is a prosaic-ism which states, “What goes around comes around”. I believe that it is the best of things that having gone around at least once comes around by design again. When something becomes so imbedded into the cultural psyche, it becomes part of our heritage. I looked up the word heritage. Wikipedia defined it thus: ‘heritage’ refers to historical events or processes that have a special meaning in group memory. Many things have passed into our cultural heritage; and foods occupy much of that heritage. I would wager that if a person went on a crowded street and asked random persons their feelings on chocolate, most of the answers would be personal and passionate. If I were asked, my answer would be fervent bordering on zealous psychosis. I am a chocoholic. I will confess that again, “My name is Amanda and I am a chocoholic.”
Recently, I have found a new method of indulging my delicious passion. I almost hesitate to tell everyone about my find, because generally speaking, the more others eat the less there will be for me! Since the product is only for a limited time, my moral conscience makes me spread the joy. What I am speaking of is AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Bites. They are marvelous bites of creamy deliciousness with a hint of spice. I let a bite melt in my mouth, and I felt like I was transported to the time of our Founding Fathers and Martha Washington. It was the pure simplicity of homemade ancestral goodness infused into true-blue chocolate candy. These chocolate bites are to live for and can be easily obtained at one of the Cracker Barrel’s 630 stores in 42 states! I think I would expire from grief if I were in one of the eight states without a Cracker Barrel. Can you say ‘road trip’?
If what I was speaking about was just another chocolate or even a gourmet chocolate, the matter at hand would not be so important. This is not your mainstream chocolate. What I am talking about is magnificent, dangerously delicious, old-fashioned chocolate that is American Heritage Chocolate’s unique recipe. This amazing delicacy is crafted using ingredients that include rich spices and touches of orange and red pepper. It is melt in your mouth, tantalizingly tasteful, stand-on-end taste bud profound goodness!
Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores should be applauded for bringing this exceptional product to the consumers (me). I would encourage everyone to go out and try the chocolate
before it is gone. I would especially encourage all chocolate lovers in the Saint Louis area to try some quickly, before I eat it all! If one has never had old-fashioned chocolate that is so creamy that chewing is optional, that is splashed with unique and fragrant flavors, then that person has lived chocolate experience deprivation. Thank-you, Cracker Barrel! My name is Amanda and I am a chocoholic!
