Dyeing For Chocolate: Chocolate Dyed Shirts

You know how heavenly chocolate smells when it's melted? Buy a shirt that's been dyed with chocolate, and you can enjoy that smell all day.

If you're a chocoholic (and admit it, you are), then you're missing out if you don't treat yourself to a chocolate dyed shirt. Yes, you read that right. And we're not just talking about a shirt that's been dyed chocolate-brown, here. Oh, it's that, sure enough -- but it got that way by being dyed in melted chocolate.

Can I get an Amen on that?

A Shirt that Smells Good Enough to Eat

While a chocolate dyed shirt is never going to be a taste sensation (there's the problem of all that fiber), it'll certainly delight your sense of smell. You know that lovely scent you get from an article of clothing that's been recently laundered, and then left to dry au naturel in the fresh air and morning sun?

Well, this is better. This is chocolate.

As far as we can tell, the concept of chocolate dyed shirts can be traced to a T-shirt outfit in Honolulu called CrazyShirts, which advertises apparel "made with aloha." Including chocolate aloha, the very best kind.

Among other things, CrazyShirts is also known for dying shirts in beer, key limes, chiles, money, and volcanic soil, . As far as we're concerned, though, their chocolate dyed clothing is the peak of their genius.

At the moment they're sticking to chocolate dyed shirts only (they're called CrazyShirts, after all), but who knows -- maybe if we complain enough, they'll start selling chocolate dyed boxers too. That would be awesome!

Time to start putting that petition together, guys.

A Gimmick? Not Hardly!

You know, chocolate dyed shirts are ideal gifts for birthdays, Christmas, Hanukah, Ramadan, Confirmation -- well, anytime, if you're an extreme chocoholic. And what’s keeping you from buying some for yourself? Why, nothing. Nothing at all.

The one sad reality about these shirts is that the scent will fade after four or five washings, until eventually the only chocolate left is in the color. Oh, sure, you could try to stretch it out by washing the shirt less often, but, well, that eventually undermines the whole concept of a chocolate-smelling shirt, now doesn't it?

But fear not: if we agitate enough, some smart person somewhere will invent a way to make the scent last forever, and we will shower them with adoration and large sums of money. Until then, you'll have to make do with what chocolate dyed shirts are available, by means of the CrazyShirts website.
