Or spend $1,800 on a 30-pound chocolate sculpture with dark chocolate truffles lined with edible gold flakes.
You gotta love American overindulgence, and our country’s strong belief in quantity over quality.
That’s the only way to explain the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa’s “Eat Your Heart Out” room package for Valentine’s Day. For $1,800, room service will deliver a 30-pound chocolate sculpture with dark chocolate truffles lined with edible gold flakes as well as your typical chocolate-covered almonds, pastries, wine, and chocolate-dipped strawberries. The package also includes blasé amenities like a gourmet picnic basket and a hot chocolate stone massage, but when you’re trying to gnaw down the last five pounds of that massive sculpture a la Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids, nothing else can really compare.
Except, I guess, the hotel's other offering. The "DoNut Disturb" package starts at $219 and includes a 10-pound Tahitian vanilla donut covered in pink icing and special sprinkles (no edible gold though, harumph).
