ChocolateBet: March 3, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:
4 pieces
Gamesformotion (distributed in the U.S. by Ferrara Pan Candy Company)
Chocolate Monopoly
4 pieces (Park Avenue $350; Reading Railroad $200; Pacific Avenue $300, Chance (?))
Very Good - surprisingly good for novelty chocolates
Wt.: ~ .65 oz. (18.4 grams)/5.1 oz. (144 grams) total pkg./box
Calories: ~ 97.5 calories for 4 pieces
Cost: $9.99 for total package (~ 33 pieces of chocolate?)
Purchased from: Walgreens, in Palo Alto, CA

This week I'm focusing on chocolate high finance. Given the state of our economy, it's possible that chocolate is worth more (pound for pound) than certain real estate properties.

Today I ate Park Avenue -- and Reading Railroad, Pacific Avenue and a Chance (?) -- properties valued at ~ $950. Gamesformotion in the Netherlands makes a chocolate edition or version of the famous board game, Monopoly. This Chocolate Monopoly box/set also comes with a game "board" and spinner, so you can play a game with the chocolate pieces (provided it's not a very hot day). Also, property and chance cards tend to disappear before you are half-way through the game.
