205: John Calvin chocolates
john calvin chocs
Yes, next year is the 500th anniversary of the joyous birth of the man who gave the world Calvinism. John Calvin is 500! And what better way to celebrate the birth of the dour, ascetic Reformer than by getting a Swiss chocolatier to create a luxury box of chocs? In other inappropriate news, the new John Knox lingerie range is being launched in the new year.

The Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches gave Genevan chocolate man Blaise Poyet the unenviable job of finding a way to represent the person and work of Calvin. "It was an interesting challenge," said Poyet, graciously. "It's not easy to represent theological ideas using taste buds. The first layer of the sweet was based on a smooth, runny praline mix. But we have reformed it."

What’s in the box? Sadly, we haven’t sampled them yet, but we’re looking forward to: Orange Delight, Papal Finger, Caramelised Heretic Crunch, Religious Nut Whirl, Chocolate Heaven Surprise (the surprise being that you can’t get into it), and No Liberal Fudge.

Is it total depravity? Or irresistible grace? Buy a box and let us know. Just CHF (Swiss Francs) 21.50.
