It?s almost Valentine?s Day, and we all know what that means: chocolate. Lots of chocolate. But what if that chocolate carried another message besides ?I love you?? What if you could celebrate Black History Month while celebrating that love? In this “Saturday Night Live” clip, Russell Stover is just another misguided brand trying to stand out with their ?Black History Heart Shaped Box.?
Inside the box, you?ll find 28 ?scrumptious African-American heroes,? one for ?each delicious day of this important month.? And each of the ?delectable Black Americans? is identified on the box top, both with flavor and by flavor. Peanut butter? George Washington Carver, obviously. While Al Sharpton gets coffee cream, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gets a custom flavor: ?I have a cream.?
?From the fiery cayenne-infused caramel of Malcolm X to the airy marshmallow of Dizzy Gillespie,? these are some of the most absurd, perfectly-done comedy chocolates in history. And the kicker, all the more perfect: ?Russell Stover. Are we doing this right??
