Well the chocolate at least sounds like a bargain compared to the rest! Thanks madame!

Yipes stripes! I love good food and drink - but I confess to being a bargain hunter! Even in US$ it's astonishing!

I always wonder if I won the lottery (because I will not be inheriting millions:lol: ), if I would do something like a $1000 tasting menu or the $280 bottle of Balsmic vinegar. Could I even taste the difference? Rolling Eyes
