on July 4, 2012 by Tim Comments

Sweet idea made in Denmark: a store where you can purchase chocolate not with cash or credit cards, but just with the promise of a generous deed toward a person you care for. The Anthon Berg Generous Store, a chocolate pop-up store in the center of Copenhagen opened its doors last month to remind people how sweet and meaningful it is to give chocolate to the people we love.
