Healthy food policy at school jumpstarts chocolate syrup trade

NEW BEDFORD — A new product has popped up on the city's black market and it's selling in an unexpected place: Greater New Bedford Vocational-Technical High School, which has become ground zero for a new underground economy based on trade in chocolate syrup.

 

Students said some of their peers are buying the contraband liquid for 50 cents and squeezing it into cartons of white milk to give it flavor. It's their way of coping with a ban on flavored milk — and a long list of other items — that took effect Aug. 1.

These little chocolate smugglers, give me hope for the future of America. 

 

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

I could build a new empire

I could build a new empire off of this policing of health !

10 bucks for a hit of that Kit Kat Bar. Cheapest deal that you will find anywhere.

5 bucks for  an Oreo cookie.

2 bucks for a Chocolate Chip, granted, these prices may seem high, but this is REAL Kit Kats and not some synthetic chocolate that all of the other dealers are out there pushing.

Start saving chocolate now.

Start saving chocolate now. I've read a couple studies suggesting cocoa may be either extinct or significantly endangered (rare & expensive) in the next 20-40 years. No more Toblerone's. Sad

Perhaps DoD wants to corner the market on Cocoa. The government teliing us they care about our health more than they care about their power. That's a good one.

 

Time to buy cocoa futures. I think it is a good bet because the more prices rise, the more war and violence there is in Ivory coast, which only disrupts supply. If the government tries to keep youi from having something it only drives the price up.

I can guarantee you that if

I can guarantee you that if the world goes to shit, but there are still adequate numbers of people for a currency system, chocolate will be the most valuable food product per gram in North America and Europe.

Beyoned is going to sqeeze one off over what I am about to say.

 

DONT FUCK WITH THE TOBLERONE! I would become a Toblerone smuggler if it went on the black market. Toblerone is the shit!

My mom introduced me to that when I was a kid, and it was not widely famous in America like it is today. To me it was forgein and exotic and it tasted damned fucking good. I liked it back then because it didn't have that nasty Hershy aftertaste.

An aside question to anyone? Was anyone as repelled by the horrid overwheming smell of Hershey Park? It is one thing to like something because of it's smell, ANY FOOD. But I damned sure don't want to walk through it like it is fucking cheap cologne and gag on it like I did when I went there. I litterally had a headache when I left. 

Yes Beyond, I do like the open market. But I certainly don't want Toblerone using bleach in it's recipe or allowing ecoli to get through. So while I love the product, I certainly wouldn't want it made in a fucking sweat shop where the workers piss in the batter.

You still owe this commie a beer, and now a Toblerone!
