I heart the Madina

OK I looked it up on their Italian homepage, and these cost at least 88 euros which is $114!!!

In an homage to the yearly Islamic month of fasting, Armani has designed chocolate pralines named Ramadan. They are alcohol-free, covered in milk chocolate, filled with dried fruits and honey and decorated in emerald green sugar.

Inspired by the refinements of Islamic art, the chocolates are incised with a stylized open lotus flower and come wrapped in gold paper that feels like silk. The box is sealed with a silk ribbon and an emerald-green gem in the center.

Giorgio Armani introduces luxury chocolates for the month-long Muslim festival – Ramadan. The neatly packed box has been decorated for the occasion, wrapped in silky smooth gold paper adorned with an open lotus flower design and an emerald green gem at the center. The contents are chocolates free of alcohol, made in milk chocolate and filled with dried fruits and honey, infused with saffron and cardamom. To make the sweets more alluring, Armani has decorated the chocolates with different designs, the most being in emerald green sugar.

The chocolates have been named as Ramadan by Armani, and will be available until the end of August in all Armani/Dolci stores in Kuwait City, Dubai, Bahrain, Doha, Malaysia, and European countries like New York and Milan. Ramadan starts from July 9 and goes on until August 8.

Traditionally, the day long fast is broken by sunset with Iftar foods such as dried fruits like dates, hard-boiled eggs and sweets, now opulent Muslims can break their fast with a box of Ramadan. Greetings!

In homage  to?

More like to get in on the profit making, lots of retailers have woken up to the fact that Ramadan & the two eids are in fact an untapped potential of hugely lucrative market.

Buy non Israeli dates, give excess money in charity and take every opportunity to invest in your akhirah.

Don't let these people hijack & commercialise Islamic celebrations the way they have their own.

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186
