October, Sisters and Brothers, is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You've problably started to see the pink packaged candies in the stores but you can also find items honoring this month long educational effort in bakeries as well especially in but not limited to big chain stores.
I recommend that you do the same if you decide to get this treat or better yet try something else with less frosting. Supporting charities are great but when bakers and candy makers think that means they can give us inferior products, they are mistaken. Give you money to causes you believe in but do not spend it on items that do not give what you'd want if the charity part of the equation was removed.
Of equal importance is how much of the price of an item goes to support that charity. Is that company actually giving part of their profits to breast cancer research or have they increased the prices of these "pink" items so they donate really excess money? The only way to determine that is to compare regular and "pink" items. With this huge cupcake, there was nothing to compare except with the regular cake slices I found elsewhere in the bakery section; the prices were the same so I felt good buying this in terms of the money to charity measurement.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
