Switzerland is famous for the Alps, precision clocks, army knives, neutrality, banking, and chocolate. Guess which one I was most excited about?
We stopped into a sweet shop to buy the bear confection below because it was so darn cute. It was a chocolate covered cookie that cost DR something outrageous like $6. We decided it was worth its value in novelty and photogenic quality. Wouldn’t you agree?
While we were in the confection shop, I saw some cute yellow colored cakes. Upon closer inspection, I realized that they had slitty eyes and a fu man chu mustache. Nice! I never knew pastries could be racist or objectionable. Then, someone pointed out that the chocolate pastries next to the Chinese ones had a peculiar resemblance to a black man with an afro. Unbelievable. At this point, I am regretting that we even patronized this establishment. Also, I wondered why they stopped at two races — they could’ve had a whole collection of delicious yet distasteful and bigoted confections.
