Miscellany – Issue 32

‘I’ CANDY (or technology and other sweeties)

A box of Philosophical chocolates wherein you know pretty much what you are going to get (a bit like listening to a Tory talk like a socialist suddenly, on the eve of an election)

Single Layer edition:

  1. Pantheist Cluster – A blend of wholly believable tastes that leave a sharp afterburn on the tongue.
  2. Too Busy Whirl – An apparently sweet rush that can make you dizzy with pleasure or pain, depending on your palate.
  3. Stoical Vanilla – An even and understated flavour sensation that can deliver a definite sense of pleasure without the paraphernalia of excitement and disappointment.
  4. Instant Gratification Cup – Offers an instant sugar rush and its flavour disappears faster than a wad of chewing gum’s on the bedpost.
  5. Nihilist Log – A puzzling blend of something and nothing. You should cocoa!
  6. Bermuda Triangle – Yes, everyone’s favourite that has everyone wondering where the chocolate disappeared. Still in its iconic green wrapper.
