It must be the paper, because I have never tasted the chocolate. Above are chocolate bars from the Mast Brothers -leaders of the chocolate revolution and pretty packaging with Italian papers. From all the articles I have read, it sounds like people would give their left arm for a tiny morsel of this goodness. I am completely charmed by their process. The brothers clean, sort, roast, and refine the cacao beans in small batches themselves and develop the flavors, like almond + sea salt. They also hand-wrap and tape each bar closed themselves {my favorite part}.

In the brief and fleeting moments I have thought about our wedding favors, I think an edible one is the way to go, especially when they are this pretty. Many people will be traveling to our wedding and to give them something such as a small plant or flowers {our first choices} will only be appreciated for a day or two, then left behind. Plus, who does not want to nibble on a bit of chocolate before their dinner comes?

But back to the paper. I actually own some sheets of the same paper. Which makes me think -maybe I should do this myself. If I did it myself I could:
1. Customize the paper as well as the label; 2. Buy chocolate bars from local shops {such as my favorite, Haven’s, in Maine}; 3. Then I would not have to travel to Brooklyn to get these chocolate bars; and 4. Not spend $7 - 8 per bar {well, I will have to crunch some numbers and get back to you on that part}, even though I am quite sure they are worth it.

Now I want some chocolate. :grin:
