The Political (Chocolate) CollectionMADE BY HARPERMACAW IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
What’s divisive, shady and often full of nuts?
Turns out that politics and chocolate have more in common than just not knowing what you’re going to get. It’s a minefield out there, so the clever folks at Harper Macaw Chocolate in our nation’s capital teamed up with award-winning graphic design firm Design Army to shine a spotlight on the seldom seen creative and collaborative side of politics. Meet their “proudly partisan,” “very political collection” of chocolate bars.
There’s something for everyone in here, so take a set to a debate viewing party and come in peace. Start on neutral territory, then test the waters by expressing your opinions on what each chocolate bar is bringing to the table before making the fur fly.
Here’s to hoping that chocolate’s feel-good effects extend to presidential candidates too. #VoteChocolate
6 Bipartisinal Bars
Flip-Flopper - Sweet or salty? Feel free to change your mind mid-bar! Dark(ish) milk chocolate mingles indecisively with toffee and sea salt.
Filibuster - Keep up your patience and stamina with protein-packed peanuts and carb-heavy pretzels in chocolate.
Left Wing - There is a liberal and equal distribution of hazelnuts in every bite of this dark chocolate bar. Naturally.
Red State - Dip your toe into conservative waters—a restrained sprinkling of dried red berries lightens up stoic chocolate.
Tea Party - The tea in this 74% dark chocolate bar might be English, but the taste is honest-to-goodness American patriotism.
Taxation Without Representation - Go ahead and be bitter. This 85% dark chocolate bar with cacao nibs (single estate Vale do Juliana) will show you up.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
You’re going to need something stronger than chocolate to get through this election year. Consider double-fisting with this Navy-strength, made-in-the-USA rum. Or real chocoholics might prefer a shot of chocolate whiskey with their bars.
