The First Ever Humanist Chocolate Bar

Sandra Colamartino is a friend of mine who until recently edited Scottish Homes & Interiors Magazine, but after a long career as an art director on newspapers and magazines has abandoned the inky world of print to become a Chocolatier, and set up The Chocolate Library.

She's designed a whole range of wonderfully packaged chocolate bars and she's currently on a mission to create 100 in 100 days.

When I bumped into her last Friday, she was looking for a good quotation for that day's label. I suggested one of my favourite humanist ones, from Robert Ingersoll, that goes like this.

"Happiness is the only good. The place to be happy is here. The time to be happy is now. The way to be happy is to make others so."

Within the hour, she'd designed the bar you see above. But then it struck me that she'd be the ideal person to use to design a very tasty wedding invitation. You can see some more of her personalised designs here and contact her here.

Maybe you can give her a good idea for tomorrow's design?

If I was the sort of person that did 'favours 'at weddings I would be tempted to use something like this at mine- indeed I might even become a favour person!

I love the quote and I love chocolate- a winning combination- lovely.
