This holiday season, cocoa treats are going complex and upscale. $120 per pound for Godiva:

At Bergdorf Goodman, huh? They might have to push aside all those MarieBelle products to make room! And it’s not surprising to see Godiva’s marketing ploys towards women, since the ages of 25-44 consume about 2/3 of “chocolate” worldwide. But honestly, Joseph Schmidt is not exactly gourmet as far as flavor and ingredients are concerned, and even Godiva’s G line has questionable ingredients. Hardly worth the money. But it’s a start!
