If you haven't tried one of these yet you're seriously missing out. Not only are these
just awesome looking but they taste great
as well. The price isn't the same as maybe one of the more popular brands but I can assure you the craftsmanship alone is
worthy of support.
That's why I reached out to Marcus (founder/owner of Original Hip Hop Chocolates) a few months ago to talk
about some ideas I had to introduce the chocolates to people in my area.
I think they're great for any event, not just special events because the chocolates alone can make an event special. I mean seriously, who doesn't like chocolate?
Through his website each piece goes for $15 and up to $25 which also comes in a nicely wrapped box. At Wreck Shop events and ciphers each piece goes for $5 to $7.
Just consider the craftsmanship that goes into creating something like this.
Designer, cultural engineer and fellow activist Marcus Gray receives the cosign from many of Hip Hops greats like Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Q-Bert, Crazy Legs and Mos Def as well as many more whom can be seen on his website:
_Before making the decision to purchase about 30 of these it wasn't for the purpose of maximizing profits. I know in an economy like this a lot of people are more likely to buy a chocolate bar in a store for $1. It was our decision to introduce a product like this to add some more authenticity to the scene.
I don't know if it's something in the chocolate or if its the art aspect of it but something about it sparked some awesome conversations and inspired creativity as well as innovative thinking among many.
We hope to continue carrying such an awesome product and provide the fans and artists with some original Hip Hip chocolate that they can take home with them after a show or a cipher so we need you to support by coming out to our events.
We have samples of the chocolate at our events for you to try also!
