What we've been up to...

Screw Chocolate 1

Christmas With Bite

It’s barely December, and already Christmas music is pouring out of stores everywhere. Shopping malls have put up their gaudy Santas, crowds of shoppers are getting heavier, and with just a few short weeks to go, the pressure is on to buy the perfect gift to show people in your life you care about them…for the right price. Who doesn’t love a little festive spirit?

Let’s be honest, despite what all the heart-warming stories in movies say, Christmas isn’t really about giving. It’s about receiving. If I give you a gift, I want something in return. Think I’m being too cynical? Check out the latest episode of our web series Midnight Bites, and see if you can resist the Biter’s cool logic.

And for the first time in the shows history, we’ve made one of his darkly delicious creations available for purchase. Screw Chocolate is despicably seductive, so good that you might just owe me something in return. Click here to purchase…it’s the perfect Anti-Claus for your Santa Claus.

Merry Christmas? Bah humbug!
