Chocolate, only better


by Andrea Mulder-Slater

I grew up in the 1990s.

Ok, I also grew up in the 1980s.

The thing is — when I was a kid in the 1970s, money was tight and we didn't have a ton of extra cash available for buying store-bought treats. Cakes were reserved for birthdays (and were always homemade), ice cream was a once or twice a year delicacy and the closest I came to Popsicles were the delicious frozen chunks of apple juice nestled in our ice cube trays.
