Girl, 9, is ‘run to death’ by gran for eating chocolate bar

29 Feb

A NINE-YEAR-OLD girl died after she was allegedly forced to “run to death” when she was punished for eating a chocolate bar.

The stepmother and grandmother of the child were last night charged with her murder in Alabama, US.

It was alleged Savannah Hardin – who had a bladder condition – was forced to run around the house for THREE hours.

She died in hospital around noon on Monday, with preliminary reports showing she was severely dehydrated.

Later that night, Savannah’s stepmother Jessica Hardin, 27, rang 911 when her stepdaughter started having seizures.

She was airlifted to hospital where she later died.

Hardin was being guarded at a Gadsden hospital – where she gave birth to another child on Wednesday afternoon.

It is believed she already has a toddler son.

Savannah’s father – who works overseas – raced home after hearing his daughter was in hospital and arrived just hours before she was declared dead.

Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin alleged that the child’s grandmother Joyce Hardin Garrard, 46 handed her the punishment – which could have made her condition worse.

Etowah County District Attorney Jimmie Harp said: “Basically she was caused to undergo physical exertion to the point in time where she just got dehydrated and her electrolyte levels got to the point where she couldn’t survive.”

A medical examiner later ruled her death a homicide.

Who doesn’t love having cereal for breakfast? All you have to do it open the box, pour it into a bowl and add milk. Not to mention the elaborate boxes and the toy at the bottom! You’ve probably even thought of a few cereal names too, but did you ever think Kellogg’s would turn your idea into a real cereal?

Tim Burgess of the band The Charlatans to Kellogg’s that he thought “Tote Amazeballs” would be an awesome idea for a cereal name. “Tote Amazeballs” translates to “totally amazing.”

Kellogg’s was intrigued by the musicians idea and made the cereal specially just for him, as in they will never be sold in stores.

Burgess explained to The Huffington Post, “I was thinking it’d be cool to come up with a breakfast cereal, I heard someone use the expression Totes Amazeballs and it sounded like something from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I sent a cheeky tweet saying I’d invented a new cereal.”

Totes Amazeballs cereal is delicious mix of Rocky Road cake, Coco Pops Rocks, marshmallows, shortbread pieces and raisins.

On the front of the box is a picture of Burgess saying, “They’re schhhweet!”

Even though Kellogg only created this cereal as a one time deal, people have flooded their Twitter asking for Totes Amazeballs, reports the Manchester Evening News.

Who could blame them? It’s a cereal with a cool name that was invented by a rock star and consists of chocolate, marshmallows and raisins!

Anyone who would be interested in trying Totes Amazeballs would have to fly over to Britain, Burgess will be selling samples from a cafe at the Kendal Calling Festival, proceeds will be donated to the David Lynch Foundation.

Maybe after the festival Kellogg will become inundated with requests for the cereal and make Totes Amazeballs available to the masses.

A chocolate lover’s dream at Bristol Public Library

27 Feb

Chocolate Lovers DreamFrom chocolate bonbons to chocolate-dipped strawberries, the smell of chocolate was enough to take your breath away Friday morning at Bristol Public Library.

It was a chocolate lover’s dream.

For the past six years, the library has partnered with the Southeast Culinary and Hospitality College on the annual Candy Contest. The event is put on by the Bristol Public Library Foundation, and is sponsored by a number of local businesses.

“This event started out as a staff event nearly six years ago, and then we branched out into the community to bring visitors a unique look at chocolate,” said Sarah Hutchinson, marketing director for the library.

Participants from the community were asked to submit their favorite chocolate recipe and judges assessed them on overall taste and presentation. In the 13- to 17- year-old division, Brianna Fleenor won with her crispy delight fudge.

In the adult category, third place went to Joan Hutton for her faux berries. Second place was awarded to Milani Saieh-Gomez for her chocolate coconut bonbons. Coming out on top with first place and best in show was Judy Gass with her decadent caramel, chocolate-covered pretzels.

“The chocolate contest is always a fun event. This is my third year of attendance. It’s always a good educational experience as well,” said, visitor Charlotte Carter.

In addition to the chocolate sampling, Chef Norman Brilliant from the Southeast Culinary and Hospitality College did several demonstrations, including chocolate truffles, marshmallows and even chocolate bowls made from water balloons.

“The chocolate contest has been a staple here at the library for quite some time. We really wanted to get the community involved, and promote what good events we have here at the Bristol Public Library,” said Foundation Executive Director Anita Foster-Machado.

The winning recipes will be posted on the library’s website, for those who want to indulge their sweet tooth with their own creations.
