We didn't realize that there was an up side to contaminated produce until we tasted the chocolated-covered grapes at Lammes. Introduced for Father's Day as a last minute substitute for their traditional chocolate covered strawberries (the summer fruit was thought to be the carrier of the bacteria) the unusual candies were an instant hit, tasting a bit like a chocolate raisin, but with a burst of tangy juice. All boxes brought back to the office disappeared within moments; everyone who tried one wanted more, more, more, please. We fervently hope that the succulent grapes are a regular addition to the Lammes line.
