Fancy chocolates at CVS

Looks like CVS is getting fancier, they have lots of gourmet chocolate now. Is this a sign of the average income in the hood going up? Or just people with a sweet tooth.

  1. Um, CVS still locks up deodorant so that you have to ask an employee to get the deodorant out for you. This CVS is just ghetto.

  2. I think there's two issues here: 1) the crappy economy - which apparently affects candy sales

  3. Interesting Times article. I thought about Easter too, but this candy is not your usual jelly beans and Cadbury eggs Easter stuff. Who knows though.
