I love to read newspapers. Their restricted randomness lets me discover all sorts of unexpected things without the time-sink of Internet searches.

Like this morning’s article in my local paper about chocolate Seders. It seems some synagogues are upscaling traditional Seder ingredients to a coordinated chocolate theme. I’ve never attended a Seder, but I hate horseradish, so I gotta say hooray! Out with the bitter herbs, in with decent dark chocolate. I especially love the mention of replacing the traditional (real) egg with a Cadbury’s mini-egg.

The article goes on to mention the historical connection of Jews and chocolate that is being explored by Rabbi Deborah Prinz in her blog, Jews on the Chocolate Trail, which I found a worthwhile time-sink for someone interested in travel, chocolate and history.
