Best Scientific-ish Reason to Eat Chocolate

Wei of Chocolate

Organic, vegan, fair-trade dark chocolate is old news by now. But infused with vibrational floral essences and customized to our moods? Keep talking. The six varieties of bite-size bliss are plain (Wei Pure for joy, strength, and inspiration; Wei Relaxed to encourage restful sleep) or flavored with tea, spices, citrus, herbs, cayenne, or espresso. They're available at several local farmers markets, spas, and boutiques — or online. If you read about the proprietors and their philosophical positions, it may all seem a bit woo-woo, but if it takes being one with everything to make something so pure and tasty, more power to them.

Best Place to Stock Up for the End of the World as We Know It

Honeyville Farms

Honeyville Farms Chandler Local Store

If the end came tomorrow, chances are the only people who'd last through the day after would fall into two groups: preppers and members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Fortunately, the keys to post-apocalyptic survival can, for the most part, be found in one convenient location. The Honeyville Farms retail store in Chandler offers all you'd need to survive alien attack, zombie invasion, or just about any other apocalyptic happening. From freeze-dried scrambled eggs and bacon to hygiene kits and portable toilets, this emergency preparedness store has it all. With 50-pound bags of harder-to-find whole grains like buckwheat and rye, Honeyville draws customers from home bakers to ardent Arizona survivalists. And this doomsday cloud has a (sunny) silver lining: Honeyville's sun-oven demos have us thinking there might be an upside to global warming after all.
