Taster’s Cherce


The Wife is a cheap date in some respects. For Valentine’s Day all she wants is a small box of Russell Stover chocolates. Last year I couldn’t find any so I bought her a box of chocolates from Jacques Torres. She appreciated the gesture, of course, but not the chocolate. Russell Stover it is–but not Whittman’s, she says. “I won’t eat that crap.”

Over at Serious Eats, here’s a taste test: Russell Stover vs. Whittman’s. 

Taster’s Cherce

The Wife doesn’t like for me to make a fuss on Valentine’s Day. She thinks it’s a lame commercial holiday and hates the idea of me buying her marked-up flowers or expensive Jacques Torres chocolates. However, if I want to get her some budget Russell Stover budget chocolates, she’s cool with that.  She’s a cheap date, what can I say?

Whatever the Wife wants…am I right?
