M & Ms and Chocolate Ice Cream

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha

Subject: The Girls Eat More Chocolate

Hey Ladies, Look what I found!” Sara says, to Tabitha and Ann who are hanging out in the living room.

M & M premiums? Mint Chocolate sounds interesting. Are they like the Indiana Jones ones?”

I don’t know. I haven’t tried them yet.”

Well, what are we waiting for!”

I’ve got some new ice cream in the freezer too as long as we’re taste testing things.”

Can’t hurt.” Sara says, opening up the M & Ms.

They all grab a couple and look at them.

They look like rocks.”

They do a little bit. And they don’t have their signature crispy shell.”

Does that mean they disprove the whole ‘melts in your mouth, not in your hand.’ theory?”

Probably. They’re kind of chewy. But good.”

What’s the description say?”

Ann picks up the box. It’s white chocolate mint wrapped in dark chocolate.”

I don’t think I care for them. The chewiness is throwing me off. I think they’re a little too sweet.”

They are a little sweet, but I really like them. They don’t feel like I’m eating M & Ms though. It lacks that satisfying crunch when you bite into them.”

I could live without the candy shell I guess. I do like these though.” Sara says, reaching for another handful.

Someone should pick up some of the other types and try ’em out.”

I’d like to try the mocha.”

Coffee flavored? Of course you would.”

Okay, break out the ice cream. What flavor?”

.“Costa Rica Rainforest Vanilla and Chocolate. It’s made by Choctal. Actually, I looked up their website, and it turns out they’re environmentally friendly and eating ice cream supports the rain forest and all that.”

All well and good…but does it taste yummy?”

Let’s find out shall we?” Ann grabs three spoons and the pint of ice cream out of the freezer.

Oooh. It’s all swirly.” Sara takes the first spoonful. “Mmm…It is very good.”

The others dig in.

Excellent ice cream. Rich and creamy. They make other flavors?”

Yeah, I love the flavor, and I like the vanilla and chocolate mixed too. Much better than your average vanilla/chocolate supermarket brand.”

They have just chocolates and vanillas. They have single origin chocolate or vanilla though.”

Single-origin? I guess this one is Costa Rica. They’ve been doing that single origin thing with chocolate more lately.”

It does make sense. Cacao beans, vanilla beans, coffee beans…What’s the difference?”

Very true. Wow..I guess we’re just going to finish the pint?” Sara asks, looking at the rapidly disappearing ice cream.

Might as well. You know Billy or Scott would finish it off on us anyway if we left it.”

In that case, dig in!”

6th Floor Blog Reviews Chocolate

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: 6th Floor Blog Reviews Chocolate and M & Ms

So I love reading those chocolate review blogs we have linked on the blog, and Billy gave me an idea.”

Does it have anything to do with all those M & Ms he brought home yesterday?”

Yup, you got it. I’ve never tried either of those flavors.”

Wildly Cherry? Are they really that wild?”

Guess we’ll have to find out. Were you guys really going to scarf down all these M & Ms without waking me?”

Figured you needed your beauty sleep.”

Beauty sleep? He’d have to sleep for a month.”

Frank punches Scott. “You got these at M & M world I assume Billy? Why are they differently shaped?”

Well, the Mint green ones are crisps. They’re promoting the new Indiana Jones movie. What is it about the green ones anyway?”

I guess that’s why the green ones have what look like images from the movie on them. Green ones are the sexiest M & M.”

Have you ever seen the Crispy Orange one? He looks…well, Crispy.”

Yeah, he’s a little jumpy. Paranoid.”

Damn, he needs to lay off the drugs.”

Hey, just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean someone’s not out to get you.”

Maybe the purple M & M is gunning for his job or something.”

The purple one probably wants a promotion or something. He or she is the equivalent of an M & M intern.”

Okay, everyone is here so I’m going to taste these things.”

Wow, this cherry is surprisingly good. I like it.”

Yeah, a nice warm cherry feel to it.”

The mint crisps are okay. I think the mint is a little strong.”

I like mint, so I like these, but you may be right. I wonder why they decided to make them crispy anyway.”

Maybe crispy is back in style? I like the cherry ones too. I hope they keep these around.”

It’s got a cherry flavor without erasing the chocolate flavor, which is nice. I don’t know why some seem thicker than the others, they all seem to be the same solid chocolate inside.”

Beats me, I almost thought they were crispy at first, but they don’t seem to be.”

You should’ve stopped into the Hershey store and gotten those New York Cheesecake Hershey Kisses. I’ve been wanting to try them.”

Actually, I did! They didn’t have them.”

The Times Square Hershey store didn’t have New York Cheesecake Kisses? How ironic”
