Choclolates, have bits of hazel nuts, (finely chopped…but NOT finely chopped enough for me), embedded in a chocolate coating, the whole surrounding a whole hazelnut. I’m one of those people who likes FILETS….boneless fish filets, boneless chicken filets, etc. I, (and I know I’m NOT alone here), like my chocolate mixtures to be complete MIXTURES….like Nutella spread, (or “figaro” hazelnut chocolate pieces…also called “chocolate truffles”). Biting through
hard, embedded “pieces” of things — even such tiny pieces of hazelnut as the chocolate-hazelnut coating has here — is NOT for me, or others like me. In this, I have discovered, I, (or make that, “we”), have true “preppy” tastes, (even though I did attend plain old Queens College in NYC — part of the very public
City University of New York where, it seems, (to me, at least), egalitarian has gone from good to exremes — and even fraternities and sororities are officially outlawed! To some, this may seem only “fair” and “equitable”. But to status-seeking me, it seems SO unglamourous! I guess I’m not the typical Queens College of the City University of New York student, though I do sincerely laud them for making eduction more available for everyone. I only wish they had more of what private universities have. To me, “equality” is equal luxuries for all, not equal utilitarianism for all. Same goal, different methods, I guess….) In “The Official Preppy Handbook”, it states that preppies like filets…no bones to slice through, or fat to trim away. (Why waste the time, why spend the effort?) The same has to go, (at least for me –and others with “preppy” tastes), for these otherwise “gourmet” quality confections. Those little bits of chopped hazelnuts in the coating — not to mention the BIG hazelnut in the centre — make eating DIFFICULT, and spoil the pleasure of eating. Rather than have a (fancy) chocolate that I must chew through, I would prefer a plain old Hershey choclate bar. It, like the more expensive Nutella, IS a chocolate “filet”. I suppose this liking of the “ordinary” Hershey bar, (and a plain one please — not one with almonds), proves I am NOT a snob — I, (and others like me), simply have TASTE!
I thought I was alone in this. But since reading “The Official Preppy Handbook”, I know that others — far richer than myself — also have these tastes. This, of course, vindicates me, and I feel glad of it.
Enjoy “Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Chocolates 48 Count Gift Box” if you wish…and give it to friends, if that is your desire. But this sort of chocolate, because of the way it is formed, is NOT my choice for either myself or my friends. And, no matter how excellent the chocolate itself is, it will NEVER be of “gourmet” quality, to me!
One hell of a gift!
First I thought that she won’t like it as she is one of those girls who are obsessed with fats and carbohydrates and balanced diet shiat.
…. and I was surprised.
Give this to your girls and “You will be loved”.
and Oh, my girlfriend thinks that Ferrero Rocher Chocolate makes her sexually excited (cough cough horny cough cough). God bless these people, they put 48 of these in that box 🙂
They are decently good, but I really just don’t get it….
Someone: hey I’ve got some of these ferrero rochers, these things are sooooo good
Me: (pretending to be excited for them), oh that’s great!
Someone: I’m having one I frickin love these!
Me: Yeah, they’re pretty good
Someone: Want one?
Me: ehhhhhh, I don’t know I just ate
Someone: How can you not eat one? Come on you know you want one, here just take it
Me: (reluctantly) Ok I guess I’ll have one
I take a bite and yeah I pretty much enjoy it, but the whole time I’m wishing i was eating something better…even a twix bar would be better, but i guess this is good. I start thinking is it really worth the fat intake for the mediocre amount of enjoyment I’m getting? Answer is “no” but hey I’m eating it so I might as well make the most of it….
Someone: See aren’t you glad you took one?
Me: (politely) Yeah totally, thanks
Someone: I’m having one more, come on cheers (hands me another one)!
