Full Power Cacao

Post by Grumble » Mon Jun 24, 2024 6:39 pm

Saw this being advertised on a banner attached to a traffic light railing. It’s not just cacao, it’s vibrationally enhance cacao.

All those alleged benefits and enhancements that result from a mug of FPC (do you drink it? Maybe you smoke it) are much the same as those that follow a pint of Guinness and a large bl..dy Mary. Makes me wonder which is made from which.

I suspect that they are much the same as those that result from any other brand of 100% dark chocolate. Multiple are available at around £2 per 100g. I found a 100% Guatemala at £4.50 per 100g.

I agree that making 100% chocolate pleasant to consume involves mixing it with other things.

My sister-in-law used to repeatedly send us raw chocolate. "Raw food" enthusiasts swear by it. But unroasted chocolate doesn't taste of chocolate. Or even nice. It's just silly.

I do actually routinely buy raw green coffee beans. But that's because I roast it myself.

this Cacao is of the highest vibration and perfect for Ceremonial use. It’s also like drinking a golden elixir of love and powerful energy. I can feel my heart burst open and it always connects me to the divine.

You could send that in to Pseuds Corner.

All that stuff about the Mayas and shamans and Lake Atitlan is somewhat misleading, well it misled me, the chocolate they are selling is actually from Venezuela.

Multidimensional healer?

There was a SF story I recall not well enough to know who wrote it, about a guy who was briefly abducted by multidimensional aliens. They studied and returned him before f.cking off, but accidentally put him back into 3 dimensions the wrong way around, so he was left as a mirror image of himself. He began to starve because he couldn't digest normal food and needed mirror-image molecules.

It seems perhaps overcautious to have healers for this eventuality but I guess you can't be too careful.

There are so many gifts for Pseuds Corner in there. E.g.

"FULL POWER CACAO is here to change the vibration of the planet to one of heart centred empowerment and wisdom."


"The truth about chocolate has been hidden from us for so long. It is time that truth came out of the darkness and into the light."


"Ethically sourced in Venezuela, divinely blessed in Manchester with the highest vibrational energy."

And yet, if Brian Cox reported from CERN at the launch of a major new experiment to change the vibration of the planet (w'ch w'd be a fab April Fool's gag by the way), I can't help feeling that these same people w'd be almost litrally Ohmygodohmygodohmygodding all over their facebook page.

Well I haven't checked if these morons are all "despite what science will tell you..." or more like "modern science is actually non-linear and quantum not linear and Newtonian like literally all scientists think"

I’ve not dug deep, but I don’t think science comes into it from what I’ve seen.

... these morons ...
Are they really morons? I think they might be people who are willing to put on an act to prey on morons.

If you can find a way to sell chocolate at £11.00 for 100g in sufficient quantity to make a living out of it, perhaps that's not moronic. To me it is somewhat discreditable, but for many that's just business. And some people are effective in doing it, and it seems the "Dragons" judged that to be the case here.

To me they aren't much different from the people who sell many other luxury goods that have a price disproportionate to the cost of production. And you get away with it because people want to pay for the mystique, prestige, etc of buying that one rather than an identical one made in a knock-off factory. I'm not saying all luxury goods are sold at a price disproportionate to their cost of production, many are expensive because they are in fact costly to make, and in such cases attempts to copy them are not the same thing. But there are many that are not so costly to produce, can be imitated accurately at much lower cost, and the price represents marketing, exclusivity, etc. Many designer cosmetics and perfumes, for example, are in that category.

He orders hot chocolate while being furiously whipped? That sounds like a hedonistic overload.
I’ve decided I should be on the pardon list if that’s still in the works

I like dark chocolate at about 70% cocoa solids.
