Fifty Shades of Grey is an international phenomenon. Author E.L. James created a perfect guilty secret in the form of the titular Christian Grey and his sex-mate Anastasia Steele. Hollywood scooped up the book trilogy and created a neo-erotic “9½ Weeks” starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian and Anastasia. Frenetic fans will have to wait until mid-2015 for the film’s official cinematic release, but at least they’ll have some chocolate to tide them over.
Fans will get a taste of what’s to come (stupid Freud!) in December of 2014. Swiss company “Blague Chocolat” created the heavenly cocoa bar earlier this year. According to lead chocolatier Jacques Mensonge, “Chocolate is one of the most profitable aphrodisiacs in human existence. Like we say in Switzerland, ‘A touch of chocolate can change your life’. We combined chocolate with Fifty Shades of Grey and discovered one of the most beautiful recipes in Blague Chocolat’s 40-year history. The dark chocolate interior, which symbolises Christian and Anastasia’s contrasting personalities, is wrapped in a blanket of aerated white chocolate. Like we say in Switzerland, ‘Don’t make war, make chocolate.’
The international “A-Loof Ads” marketing firm is currently on working on a “Fifty Shades of Chocolate” teaser trailer. The tagline reads, “Fifty Shades of Chocolate – Tie up your taste buds”. According to founder and CEO Linda Elsaf, “The Fifty Shades PR team asked us to develop a specific brand for a mainstream market. ‘Fifty Shades of Chocolate’ will sell like hotcakes. Blague Chocolat’s creation is unique, interesting and unorthodox. It’s an ‘orgasmic’ combination!”
Did she just say ‘orgasmic’? What- I don’t even know- Where am I? Would you pay $5.00 for a six-piece “Fifty Shades of Chocolate” slab? Remember, it’s chocolate. C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E! What do you think? Is this a clever idea? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
