THE ROCK FATHERThere has never been another time when I could say that I've been "excited about chocolate." Sure, I like my peanut butter cups on occasion, but it wasn't until a couple of months ago when I discovered Wild Ophelia that I really became interested in the chocolate that I was about to eat or share with my children. Created right here in Chicago by noted Chocolatier Katrina Markoff of Vosges Haut-Chocolat, Wild Ophelia is "an American roadtrip through chocolate" that connects the American farmers' movement with chocolate through the sourcing of all natural, often organic ingredients. Their new line of extraordinary flavors and a surprising connection to THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE lands Wild Ophelia firmly in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide here on The Rock Father.

Who is Sponsoring THE STARVING GAMES?

There is no disputing that THE HUNGER GAMES is a huge deal right now, and nothing solidifies that more than when a property becomes so much a part of popular culture that is warrants it's own parody. On November 8, Ketchup Entertainment will release THE STARVING GAMES, a new send-up from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the dastardly duo behind EPIC MOVIE, DATE MOVIE, DISASTER MOVIE, MEET THE SPARTANS, VAMPIRES SUCK, and the forthcoming FAST AND THE FURIOUS parody, SUPERFAST. With Halloween happening tomorrow (and THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE out November 22), a special feature just landed here at Rock Father HQ, and it's prime for inclusion right here in the "For Grownups" section of the site. When Candy Corn is involved, all bets are off. So who is sponsoring THE STARVING GAMES? Scroll through the gallery below to find out...
