Merry Christmas! I hope your day is full of giftwrap-tearing fun, excellent food and A-grade company (and, if it’s enforced company, I hope it’s of the likeable and non-judgmental sort, the kind that don’t ask questions about marital status/career direction/house-buying likelihood/baby forecasts).
I’m not sure how sugar got so highly linked with Christmas but, in any case – historical fogginess aside – it’s a good excuse to enjoy treats like this Chocolate Snowman ($15) from Boon. This scarf-wearer’s tubbiness is not just some zeitgeisty social comment on obesity, though; it’s just a handy way to disguise the fact there is:
1) a reindeer
2) a praline
3) and a sprinkle of chocolate crackles
enveloped inside that tummy. I’m kinda impressed by such efficient stomach-storage.
Oh and spatial capacity aside, the snowman is a tasty little Christmas memento, too. Merry Crimbo everyone.
