Now here is a political party that I can really support wholeheartedly! Washington, D.C. chocolate maker Harper Macaw has teamed up with Design Army to create a “wildly delectable, highly electable” line of political party chocolate. The six varieties in the Election Year collection each display a patriotic red, white, and blue design, intended to put a positive spin on the world of politics and shine a spotlight on D.C.’s lesser-known creative side.
RED STATERED STATE A BLEND OF RED BERRIES, CONSERVATIVE DARK CHOCOLATE, AND FREE MARKET CAPITALISM. (UN) OFFICIAL FAVORITE OF THE GOP.
Inspired by old family money and old family portraits, Red State design features an increasingly rare and endangered species – a capitalist white elephant attired in a raspberry-studded smoking jacket.
LEFT WINGA DEFIANTLY DEMOCRATIC MIX OF DIVERSE DARK CHOCOLATE COMBINED WITH LIBERAL AMOUNTS OF SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS HAZELNUTS.Save the Gay Whales! Free Cocoa Beans! Equal rights for nuts! Left Wing packaging proclaims its liberal leanings with stridently outspoken hazelnuts. This is chocolate worth protesting for.
TEA PARTYROCK THE BOAT WITH A GRASS ROOTS MOVEMENT FOR PATRIOTIC CHOCOLATE INFUSED WITH ENGLISH TEA.Flying sharks. Historical whaling ships. Tea chests afloat in a red and white striped sea. Tea Party represents the movement’s revolutionary point of view with an equally revolutionary mash up of sci fi and surrealist design.
TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONTHE SENTIMENTS OF DC DWELLERS, EXPRESSED IN BITTER CHOCOLATE.Made especially for (still) unrepresented DC tax payers, Taxation Without Representation features dueling images of the prime culprit, Uncle Sam. Vent your frustration by biting his head off.
FLIP-FLOPPERSWEET ONE MOMENT, SALTY THE NEXT. CHANGE YOUR OPINION WITH EVERY BITE.A favorite of politicians on both sides of the aisle, Flip Flopper mimics tarot card design with a donkey and elephant divided by an impenetrable party line. Want to switch sides? Just turn Flip Flopper upside down.
FILIBUSTERSPEND HOURS OF UNINTERRUPTED BLISS WITH TACTICAL PRETZELS AND PROCRASTINATING PEANUTS.Arguably DC’s most verbose chocolate, Filibuster features short snippets from long-winded speeches in comic strip balloons. Green Eggs and Ham, anyone?
