The other night on the way back from work (in Coquitlam. woot.) we stopped in at Ikea so a friend could grab some shelves. Needing to warm up, we got in line for a coffee. What the hell kind of cafe are they running at Ikea? 50¢ hotdogs, $1 pop, $1 cinnamon buns, $1 coffee (no variation). Super crappy cafeteria styles.
However, in the line up I spotted this little number: Choklad Ljus. $1 for 100g of milk chocolate in the most perfectly simple, clean and attractive packaging. Who was I to resist?
You may wonder what sort of quality one may expect from such cheap chocolate, and given the such inferior quality of everything else there*, I was wondering too. However, I was quite pleasantly surprised to tast a very rich, creamy milk chocolate. I usually choose the dark chocolate, but this wonderful bar reminded me why milk chocolate can be so good.
Thank you, Ikea Food. You make wonderful Choklad Ljus.
* The coffee was quite hot, which was nice. The cinnamon bun was dreadful, not at all worth it. I resisted the hotdogs.
