Brussels and Chocolate

Yesterday – even with having to contend with a workload that is threatening to drown us in a tsunami of exam scripts – the six of us went out for lunch, taking the opportunity to celebrate Jessica Ho’s birthday on Wednesday. A short but well-deserved break at Sunway Pyramid.

For those who really, really hate eating their veggies – here’s an idea! Coat your vegetables in chocolate. That’s what Andy Simpson – he has a store at the Elsecar Heritage Centre, near Barnsley, South Yorks – did. He produced his new delicacy of Brussels covered in the finest Belgian chocolate and sure enough, they are selling like hot cakes at just 25p each (Webpage, posted December 22, 2011).

The chocolatier explains: "I know Brussels sprouts are a bit like Marmite, you either love them or loathe them. I like them, they are a nice chocolatey shape but I must admit they are an acquired taste."
