I think I can write about chocoloate all day and have plenty of posts here on Extraordinique to prove it. There's my favorites, like Mariebelle, Vosges, TCHO Beta, and the tasty cacao nibs by sweetriot. Now, to add to my addiction, I've found Alice Chocolate. In their own words, Alice is the "definitive Swiss chocolate experience."
Inspired by Lewis Carroll's famous tale, Alice in Wonderland, Alice is seeking to become a classic brand icon reknown in the world of distinguished and luxury chocolates.
Alice chocolate has a sleek and distinct, sliding case that makes the presentation rich and sexy. The chocolate itself comes from fair and sustainable sourcing from unique ingredients like wild-growing, Criollo, which is harvested manually, deep in the Amazon rainforest. Each bar of Alice chocolate has 68 percent dark Wild Amazonian Criollo.
OK, so right up front, this cool contraption stopped me in my tracks. I want one or at least want to take one for a ride... and soon! I just came across this totally radical scooter / sports "vehicle." Called the Easyglider, this "vehicle" brings a whole new meaning to "people mover." Whether you want to take a leisurely cruise down a parkway or get x-games with inline skates or a skateboard, it seems like the creative minds at Easyglider wanted to design an innovative way to get people from here to there - you apply your own style.
I've got to believe these will become increasingly popular among the "cool kids." Now available in 50 countries, including the U.S., I can't wait to see these around town!
Check out this segment on TV's Beyond Tomorrow to view the Easyglide in action! It kind of puts it all in perspective.
