ABC is doing a series of videos that they call Coffee Break where they ask one of the stars of their series a question. In the video below they asked Elizabeth Henstridge, who plays Jemma Simmons on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, if her family has any favorite holiday traditions… and she pulled out an odd one.
Seems every year the family get a tray of chocolates… a box of assorted chocolates for folks this side of the pond… and they take a bite out of the candy. They don't eat the whole candy, just a bit… and then they discuss what they taste like. Except… no one take the coffee candy. Seems that even when new people are brought over, they are forced into this tradition.
This leads to so many questions…. How did this start? Why only a bite? What happens to the rest of the chocolate? Why are you skipping the coffee one? Do you people have nothing else to talk about during the holidays or is this just to avoid talking about politics and religion? One the chocolate is bit, is it off limits or does someone else get to take a bite and share there thoughts… and the big question, if no one sends you a box of chocolate, do you go buy one to keep this tradition going?
If I ever get a chance to interview Henstridge, I'll probably just ask those questions.
