We have several months to go before we actually get to vote. But with the Democratic National Convention headed to town in just a few weeks, you can declare your allegiance in chocolate.
Moonstruck Chocolate Co.'s Election Collection goes on sale this week at Fresh Market stores in Charlotte. Each four-piece box features either elephants or donkeys whimsically rendered in chocolate and filled with dark chocolate ganache.
In our office, people thought they had a distinctly Seussian look, although the donkey looks a bit like a cow, while the elephant can be mistaken for a hippo. Still, for some of us, there are starting to be charms in the notion of biting the head off either totem.
Moonstruck rep Theresa Ford says they tried doing a mixed box with elephants and donkeys, but it didn't fly: "Nobody liked that."
The four-piece box is $15 SRP. If you want to watch videos of them being made, you can go to You Tube.
