Time is running out on 2010. And, some would say, given hard economic times this past year for many, that is a good thing. However, the end of the year is also a time to review all the theme weeks that might have been on Chocolate Banquet (this blog) -- themes that were just a little bit too "different." This week's theme week tackles a different imaginary theme every day.
Today is Day #1 of Chocolate and Something Different Theme Week, and today we explore chocolate and zombies, with a few Albanese Gummi Army Guys thrown in for fun.
Palmer makes lots of fun novelty chocolates, and their Milk Chocolate Flavored Solid Zombies offering is in tune with the recent resurgence in popularity of zombies (e.g. local San Jose Metro cover above right). The fruit-flavored (green apple-ish) Gummi Army Guys were made by the Albanese Confectionery Co., based in Merrillville, Indiana. Poor chocolate zombie never had a chance.
