Americans can cast their vote at www.PresidentialPoll2012.com and follow the voting progress of their favorite candidates during the Presidential Election. The poll also tracks which party will control the House of Representatives, Senate and even the Supreme Court. These poll results are 'easy to swallow' and practically foolproof, with a "fudge" factor of + 2% as people who eat chocolate "never" lie. Choclatique has also unveiled its Capitol Collection, a new line of truffles, each piece representing either Democrats (blue donkeys) or Republicans (red elephants). Each individual piece of chocolate is a hand-decorated white chocolate truffle filled with soft, creamy, dark chocolate ganache.

    “So cute.” That was my first reaction to the latest arrival in the office. It was a package of candies from Choclatique that are shaped like three-tiered wedding cakes and cake slices. After taking one out of the two-pack box, I planned my strategy. Start at the top. Taking a first bite of the top layer, I was rewarded with a strawberry-and-cream filling, very much like what you’d find in a wedding cake.

    Many protein bars have a lot more protein in them compared to the ratio of calories, so I was skeptical of how this bar would hold me. However, the combination of fat-carbs-protein was in fact VERY satisfying. They were really dense and thick as well. Conclusion? Awesome, filling snack, and they are especially great for people who are running around/have hectic schedules/etc.
