We love chocolate. We love pizza. We do not love chocolate pizza.
Aaron Sanchez said that the chocolate pizza at Max Brenner’s was the best PIZZA he ever ate. Aaron Sanchez no longer has taste that we trust completely.
We arrive at Max Brenner still raving about the Toasted Marshmallow Shake at Stand, ready to further indulge our sweet tooth with a slice of chocolate pizza. Upon walking in the door, we are greeted by a complete and total mob of insanity. Clearly, we are missing out on the Max Brenner chocolate train: the place is packed.
Maneuvering to the counter, we manage, with a bit of confusion and struggle, to order a slice of chocolate pizza. “Do you want marshmallows on that?” the salesgirl asks. Why yes, if they’re anything like those found in the Toasted Marshmallow Shake, we’d like a heaping of marshmallows.
It seems obvious that our inept fondue waiter has been fired from Artisanal Bistro and taken up employment at Max Brenner in the span of one hour.
Finally, our pizza slice arrives: pizza crust, gooey layer of warm melted chocolate, and a topping of slightly browned sticky marshmallows. What could be wrong?

The whole thing is a hot (literally) mess.

The concept behind the chocolate pizza could be genius, but only if the taste lives up to the hype. So sorry, Max Brenner -- we guess we come from a land where we don't like to play with our food.
