There are a few things that we, as Washingtonians, have to have done at least once, for our claim to residency to be taken seriously. Things like visiting the monuments at night, downing a half-smoke at Ben's Chilli Bowl, and taking in the cherry blossoms. Also in that mix? Slurping up the famed toasted marshmallow shake at Good Stuff Eatery (or any of their dangerously addictive shakes, for that matter).
The creative flavor combos of these crazy-decadent drinks (malted chocolate Milky Way shake, nomnomnom) are an overwhelming taste-gasm — we've actually considered moving a little closer to Good Stuff, they're that good. We couldn't have dreamed a way for them to up the ante in the delish department, but the folks at Good Stuff and Penn Quarter chocolatier Co Co. Sala have proven otherwise.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, they teamed up to turn Good Stuff's three most popular handspun milkshakes into — you guessed it — chocolate bars. We're talking dark chocolate toasted marshmallow, milk chocolate Milky Way malt, and soursop hop strawberry white chocolate. After hearing those names, we feel sorry for store-bought chocolate, which we can't envision ever eating again. The bars are available at Good Stuff Eatery on Capitol Hill today, and we wouldn't be surprised if someone buys out the stock to re-sell on eBay. Jason Wu, who?
