Sliced Chocolate Is Now a Thing — and We’re All In
Are you into Nutella, but find it too labor-intensive?
Have we got a pitch for you!
Bourbon, a Japanese brand that, confusingly, specializes in chocolate and other sweets, is releasing sliced chocolate. To be clear, this is not a chocolate-flavored spread or topping. These are two-millimeter-thick slices of chocolate that are sold five to a pack.
And this ain’t your chalky-tasting American chocolate, either: Bourbon used “nama chocolate” for their slices, which is basically high-quality cacao and cream. It’s essentially solidified ganache.
The company sells the slices in bulk bundles of one dozen five-slice packs on their site (which is Japanese, so good luck) for about $27. At that price, it’s a little expensive to go on Homer Simpson-style “64 slices of American cheese” binges, but we have faith in you.
You can do it.
You just have to believe in yourself.
