Making Me Smile: Talking about chocolate!
For my November Desire, I had to create more than just a hero and heroine and the world they live in. I had to invent a chocolate bar. (Hard work, but someone's got to do it!) Macy Ashley works for Chocolate Diva, an international company that's looking to expand into Australia. She's investigating the possibilities and reporting back to her boss, Ryder Bramson.
So, the company, Chocolate Diva, needed to have some products. I started with chocolate coated fruit pieces. I called them Diva Drops and, for the Australian market, the company was looking at adding dried mango. I love dried mango, but it's pretty hard to find. (I had heaps of fun writing the scene where Macy shows Ryder what they'll taste like using a chocolate fountain and the dried fruit!)
Then I wanted a chocolate bar. I called it the Diva Truffle Bar - crushed almond and honeycomb in a chocolate truffle, coated in their own brand Diva chocolate. Lots of discussion with the other chocolate addict in the house over the ingredients for this one - we ended up just adding in all our favourite things. =) Lastly, there was a sampler tray - one of those trays with a few different flavours to experiment with.
So tell me, if you could invent your own chocolate bar or chocolate product (or if you're not a chocolate fan - any snack) what would it be? I have a copy of At The Billionaire's Beck & Call? (which is known as The Chocolate Book in my house) to give away to one commenter!
