That’s right. You heard me. This suite is made from chocolate. 100% cocoa my friends. (Well, almost.) Can you imagine a room entirely of chocolate? I know it sounds like something out of Charlie and the Choloate Factory, but it’s true. Besides the necessary structural elements Godiva has mastered the ingenious art of building a room from chocolate. In what I’d call their “sweetest” Valentine’s day stunt yet they’ve constructed chocolate chairs, a chocolate fireplace with chocolate logs and ambient twinkling of fire. There is chocolate art, tables, books, bookshelves, chandeliers and more. To a chocolate connoisseur it’s a dream come true. Of course you have to be careful about what you touch and where you sit and you have to take care not to aiming the lights at the carefully sculpted items or turn up the heat to high as there is a tendency for thing to melt. But it remains a feat. And it is a sight and, mmmm, a scent to behold! In short: it’s divine.
Last week I was fortunate to explore this very special chocolate “suite” made as part of Godiva’s annual Valentine’s day giveaway. Not everyone can see this room but one lucky winner will win the Godiva giveaway and get flown to New York city for a rich weekend at the Bryant Park hotel where this suite will be put together again for their pleasure. And yes, the winning couple can feel free to eat everything that’s not structural.
Hurry Valentine’s day is approaching and it’s time to remember your sweetie. Well that and the fact that your buying power starts at Godiva with boxes $23 and up. There’s a chance to win in every box. Yum!
