Item: Zaro's Chocolate Babka

Droooooool. This is the greatest pastry known to creation, and is courtesy your friends, the Jews. You should read the whole description of the food from Zaro's. Actually, I'm going to steal a little bit of their description just so I can quiver in anticipation of the next time I get to eat one:
We still make Chocolate Babka the same way we did way back when. The dough is made from butter, milk, eggs, sugar, orange paste, and other all natural ingredients. Folded into the dough are chocolate chips, liquid chocolate marble, chocolate cake crumbs and some nuts. Each Chocolate Babka weighs about two pounds
You know where this is going. DELICIOUS. Also notable is their cinammon-raisin babka. The secret ingredient they can't give away is the one last ancient semitic secret dating back to biblical times [it is the revelation of this secret not the conversion of the Jews that signals the end times, will probably be discussed in the next 12 Left Behind books-ed.]. It's an arc of the covenant kind of secret, which is only known by the highest of the high priests and is muttered only once a year [and if you use its power for evil, your face will melt off- ed.].

Hmmm...I'm reserving judgement on this one. Your description is appetizing, but the product itself looks like a steamy pantload dumped into a cardboard tray.

Putative girlfriend is trying to convince me that Zabar's babka is supposed to be better, but I'm not biting. I want the babka with the old-testament sh*t going on.

Item: Kupel's chocolate babka

This appeared in our lunch room this afternoon, which I thought a fine omen, given the state of arousal I was in thinking about Zaro's babka. It looks great and cuts soft, but it is terrible. Yeasty, not rich, and uninspired. I want to make sure the baker was cut down at 8 days because I'm starting to develop concerns. Verdict: Not delicious. This is as close as I come to disgusting.

Or, translating from the Pig Latin above, the PUPPY is peeing on your computer.

I like Green's, in Brooklyn. No fancy ingredients, just chocolaty goodness. I almost ate the whole one first time I tried it.
