"Metal chocolate"? My teeth ache just thinking about that one.
Listen to my albums free on BandCamp. Or visit my main website for links to photography, etc.

Red is mentioned as one of the earlier colour choices. Are people actually buying these weird colours? I suppose they must be as the range is being extended.
