As soon as we got back to the hotel, we changed into workout clothes before the doughnut coma could set in. We were off to Rock City! If you’ve ever driven from Atlanta to Chattanooga, surely you’ve been bombarded with the billboards for Rock City and Ruby Falls.
I’m not sure how to explain exactly what Rock City is. A rock garden? A natural attraction enhanced by carved gnomes and terrifying suspended bridges? Either way, it was a fabulously fun tourist trap with beautiful views.
You know what’s a great cure for a flat tire? Brownies. Specifically, rich, moist dark chocolate brownies. They’ll cure anything, really.
Yesterday, in an effort to eat my sadness, I sauntered to the pantry only to discover that I was out of my faithful Ghirardelli boxed brownie mix. CUE THE MELTDOWN. Brownies were delayed until I could make it to the grocery store, but instead of picking up a box of brownie mix when I was there, a box of Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa caught my eye. A note to marketers out there: if you want me to buy your product, put “Dark Chocolate” on the packaging and I’m sold.
