Friend 1: I have to find a hostess gift.
Friend 2: How about some Hooker’s?
F1: Um, I wasn’t exactly thinking sexual favors.
F2: I mean Hooker’s Sweet Treats, silly. It’s a line of sea-salted, dark chocolate-covered caramels. They’re handmade with fair trade sugar and organic ingredients by a local graphic designer who perfected his very own recipe. Plus, they come in an ecofriendly cardboard box tied with a string, which gives them an old-fashioned spin.
F1: How come I’ve never seen ’em?
F2: They’re available only at a couple of places around the city. Or you can contact David Williams, The Caramel King, directly.
F1: What a pimpin’ idea.
Available at Sightglass Coffee, 270 Seventh Street, at Folsom Street (sightglasscoffee.com); The Perish Trust, 728 Divisadero Street, at Grove Street (theperishtrust.com). For more information, go to hookerssweettreats.com.
