I am a mom. I have celiac disease. I eat chocolate. I’m trying to figure out how to slide my kids the hint that Scharffen Berger Raspberry and Almond Chocolate would be a perfect Mother’s Day gift without being too obvious.
In my experience, my kids are usually stumped for an idea for what to do for Mother’s Day, and they don’t seem to believe me when I say I just want a nice handmade card and a day without bickering. That, apparently, is a tall order. So they buy me stuff. Usually with my money.
Enter Scharffen Berger Raspberry and Almond Chocolate. Why this chocolate? Raspberry and Almond Chocolate? Or should I say: framboise chocolat avec amande? Because it’s tres délicieux! It tastes fancy without being inaccessible. They can even get it at our usual grocery store (Giant) so it’d be so easy for them to get it without a special trip to the mall (Heaven help me).
It’s a gift I want, easy to find, won’t break the bank, and I can still probably get my kids to make a card to go with it. Win-win-win! Not to mention, it’s sweet, a little salty, and full of raspberry deliciousness. Now if only I can convince them it’s ok for me to not share!
