After we left SDC in 2016, I was given a bar of chocolate. It had a white paper wrapper with a bluish violet ink. When I bit into it, there was a kind of sugar-grainy feel 🤤 and it was decadently devine! All I know is that it was purchased in one of the shops. Been trying to find it online, ever since. The photo I posted may just well be the exact brand but...do any of you know of any other chocolate bar sold in a shop or shops that fit my memory's selective description?
If not, feel free to share your chocolate! :p Story, that is!

Always happy to learn unfamiliar terms.

What does ‘Jones’ing’ mean? Do you know how it was derived?

That's the one I've been given - you're supposed to melt it into hot milk and "drink" it. Trouble is I can't find a recipe for how much milk against how much chocolate!
They told me the same label with red print was for cooking and the blue for eating. Heck Jeff, just keep adding "to taste"! 😋

I know of it from a movie line. Usually used as similar to craving. Others might have different ideas. 😉

Hmmm ... I thought it had something to do with, ‘Keeping up with the Joneses.’ But I couldn’t really connect it with what the OP was saying.
