Science has solved the problem of how to make a chocolate teapot that can withstand boiling water long enough to let the tea brew for two minutes before pouring. And if you don't stir the water in the pot (that's the key — don't stir the water!) the tea comes out with only a slight hint of chocolate. [telegraph]
This idea started with a common search engine misspelling, chocolate suite verses chocolate sweet. Now you can actually buy the whole sweet suite for just $133,000. The calorie count is available at the link, but who wants to know that?
