I meant to do a giant review of all the British candies I ate while working abroad last summer...and there's a draft of it somewhere but I felt like Flake needed its own post--mostly b/c I like the pictures better, and u can bite my sh*ny metal @$$.
What is flake u say? It looks like somebody who was really into food porn decided to drizzle ribbons and ribbons of chocolates on a cold marble slab and blew cold, brisk air as it cascaded down to let it temper as it fell into some wrinkly, convoluted mess. Sensual? or accidental?
The product was first developed in 1920 and was founded by an employee of Cadburys. When the excess from the moulds was drained off, it fell off in a stream and created folded chocolate with flaking properties. 
When we were chillin' at the Tate Modern lawn, Albee bought a "99p" or whatever it was called (I swear b/c it cost 99pence but anyway), which consisted of soft serve in cone with a giant Flake jammed in the middle. Violent, graceful...*shrug*.
Do you enjoy the sexy side to flake and ice cream? Other people obviously agree with me. That one's borrowed from flickr (@ brighton beach courtesy of Ben Lawson's photostream.
I miss my natural light and my flake in natural light--maybe I'll reshoot soon, but I'm too busy during lunch what with the eating and walking the dog and you know, going back to work and all to really catch the light. Plus it's been dreadfully gloomy and drizzling these past couple days and you depress me.
