This Little Wayne Chocolate Bar  by Artist Tahir Hemphill of Staple Crops/ Rap Research Lab is a statement on the commodification and consumption of Hip-Hop music and African-American creativity and culture. At $75 for a pack of three 2oz. chocolate bars, I'm not sure if you're supposed to actually consume them but I would. I couldn't resist adding myself to the list of people taking a bite out of Little Wayne. For more on Hemphill and his work check him out here.

A Kiss Or Two
Valentines Day is supposed to be an amorous holiday but if the thought of spending more on your loved ones so soon after the holidays creates cold chills rather than warm fuzzies than I may have a solution. While you may still have to dig into your pockets, you could go quality, not quantity.  Voila Chocolat of Manhattan offers quaint little bags of delightful truffles in thoughtful sets of two. And if you're looking to go big, than for $75 per person, you can book a creative chocolate making experience and walk away with a box of 16 custom truffles. Voila uses quality ingredients such as Guittard and offers custom chocolate making experiences year round.
