Real question: What kind of chocolate does Angelina Jolie keep in her purse?

We’ve got some more fun stuff from Angelina Jolie, some of it involving her excellent March cover for British Vogue. The magazine has been releasing more photos from the shoot at Jolie’s LA home, including this great photo of Angelina and three of her kids, Vivienne, Knox and Zahara. Angelina also did an ‘In My Bag’ feature for the magazine:

The most important question is: what kind of chocolate is that? It didn’t look like Lindt or Ferrero Rocher. What is individually wrapped in gold foil? Godiva? I MUST KNOW! I also like how clean her purse was, I aspire to that. I have twenty crumpled receipts at the bottom of my purse. And mints. And a pink pen for some reason. Angelina also gave some quotes – new quotes, I believe – in support of her Guerlain contract. She name-checked Guerlain several times in her British Vogue piece (and again in this video), and now she says that Zahara is also into Guerlain:

“Guerlain is really a favorite of mine. Z [Zahara] and I share the perfume products, such as the lotion and the body wash. I love that she and I will remember each other by a smell. Especially as my first memory of Guerlain was the scent of my mother’s powder.”

[From The Daily Mail]

So Zahara is the one who uses her mom’s Guerlain products, just like Angelina used to grab her mom’s Guerlain products. *hums “The Circle of Life” and cries*

Last thing: Warner Bros will release Angelina’s new film, Those Who Wish Me Dead, on HBO Max in May. It’s supposed to be a lady-Western. Directed by Taylor Sheridan, who is a great director.

    So so adorable!

    • lascivious chicken says:

      yes def a See’s lollipop

    • Esmom says:

      I’m intrigued. Is it just a piece of chocolate on a stick? Or is it a lollipop that’s just chocolate flavored? I know nothing about See’s except that my husband has spoken of them nostalgically. He grew up on the west coast, which is where I assume they are based?

      • MM2 says:

        When I was a little girl (grew up on west coast) there were See’s Candy shops in every shopping area. They were gold, looked like a sweet Charlie’s Chocolate Factory, but with a grandma twist, & had the best candies. My grandma used to always take me & we’d pick out a few really great pieces to enjoy at home. I’m with your hubby on the nostalgia.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        It’s a lollipop that is chocolate flavored. Tastes a little burnt. I just placed an order for See’s for valentine’s day and ordered a box of the chocolate lollipops. Our mall has a See’s kiosk during the holidays and they give away lollipops and individually wrapped chocolates. They are super generous with the samples.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        their chocolate covered toffee is amazing. I house sat for some people who had it and had to restrain myself so I didn’t eat all of it. I wound up ordering some.

        I think they (used to) sell it at Lord and Taylor.

      • Esmom says:

        Not sure about a chocolate lolly. But I could get on board with chocolate covered toffee, lol, as long as the chocolate is nice and dark.

        Here in Chicago we have Fannie May, which also has a grandma vibe. My father-in-law, who transplanted to the west coast from Chicago, remembered them nostalgically so we sent him a box every year on his birthday.

        Now I need chocolate in some form.

  2. Jules says:

    I love how over it she is in this video, like who cares?

  3. Soni says:

    She is so stunning it hurts to look at her!

  4. LOL says:

    Adorable ❤

  5. tlady drake says:

    See’s lolly. they are perfecto for long lasting chocolate fix on the go. I have repainted almost my whole house during Covid, and those got me through the tedious parts.

  6. Myra says:

    That was adorable. I’ve got crumpled receipts in mine, as well. I’ve also got headphones for when I want to be anti-social in public.

    • Golly Gee says:

      I have at least a year’s worth of crumpled receipts in mine. I had to pull them all out to find my keys once and ended up with a pile that was about 8 inches high! (Hangs head in shame.) I’ve stopped accepting receipts at the grocery store —they are the most prolific and take up the most room.

      • Lady D says:

        Rushed into Canadian Tire because I was in a real hurry and needed a tire gauge. The receipt was literally 18″ long. Disgusting waste of paper and trees. I should mention that I almost never shop for a single item, I consider it a waste of time, money, and gas plus it’s hard on the environment. I just needed a tire gauge on that particular trip. It came with a foot and a half of paper. Even if I refuse the receipt they still print the damn thing.

      • Myra says:

        Lmao. That’s what I’ve had to do, as well. I don’t accept anymore receipts, unless I have a shopping bag.

      • Grace says:

        We need to be friends! I am a receipt hoarder too!

  7. Nina Simone says:

    Such a timeless woman 🧡

    Her kids are always smiling and happy. Props to Angelina for being such a generous and great mother. Glad they’ve been removed from the toxicity their dad brought.

  8. Yoyo says:

    There is also a picture of her with Maddox, can’t believe that he is twenty.

    • Nina says:

      Gosh, same. I vividly remember when the first picture of them together surfaced. He was so tiny! But I think she was mid twenties when she adopted him?

  9. Lively says:

    Always carry not more than 4 item in my bag.
    Full bags of rubbish or unnecessary things give me hives, lol I hv issues.

    I think what was going through angies head this entire video is; who gives a shit what’s in my bag 😂😂😂

    • Sof says:

      I got that impression too, it’s as if she felt stupid for showing us what’s in her bag. Tbh, who wouldn’t feel the same way.

    • Nina says:

      I personally looove seeing what others have in their bag. But I’m a sociologist with all my heart things like this fascinate me to no end. I personally have more than 4 things in my bag at all times (and probably a lot more) but not a single one would I consider “rubbish”. Every item has its puporse and I like to be prepared. I commuted a lot pre-pandemic and that’s why I have a little case with a small towel from Japan, small cutlery and chopsticks and foldable scissors. That alone is more than 4 items…

    • Lady D says:

      Apparently I have control issues because I don’t carry a purse. I need my hands unencumbered. I need/require keys, ID and a bank card and they all fit in one pocket. It’s how I’ve traveled for years. I’ve probably used a purse 10 times so far in the 21st century.

  10. Celebitchy says:

    It looks like Merci chocolate! We used to get it in Germany a lot.

  11. GuestwithCat says:

    Yeah, it may be designer and cost more than my car, but that’s a mom bag all right. Hers is relatively empty like mine is now. But her youngest are now old enough to have their own bags and backpacks, so what happens is she’s still used to carrying a bag large enough to cram an entire article of clothing into it if necessary, but it’s largely just now holding her own things. And they’re very nice things. She has everything very designer. I have the same categories of stuff, but bargain basement.

    I did not own a designer handbag until I was about 44. And I wore my prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses until they literally fell off my face and could not be mended anymore. I could afford better even as early as 37, but my perception of what I could afford took a long time to catch up to the upward changes in my financial means.

    Even now, if an appliance breaks, I panic for a moment before I remember we can afford to have it repaired or replaced now. This is ludicrous given that I don’t need to panic about money anymore. Yet I still ration my doctors visits with an instinctive fear of accruing copayments and bills. I still get upset if I failed to finish all the leftovers in the fridge before they go bad. I don’t know when that panic ever leaves. I don’t know if it ever will. Maybe it’s a good thing it doesn’t. I think our environment could do with some more frugal panicking.

    But the one thing I upgraded as soon as my financial means allowed me to was my chocolate supply and I never get pangs about splurging on that! I went from Brachs and Hershey’s kisses to Godiva and Lindt and Fannie Mae. I also went from milk chocolate to chocolate as dark as my eyes. Priorities! 😆

    She didn’t turn her bag completely upside down so I suspect the less glamorous junk is in there or stuffed into an inner pocket. Everyone has hand sanitizer and wipes and tissue these days. Moms always used to have gum, too, but I’ve noticed not many people chew gum anymore. I don’t know why that is. A lot of schools have rules against it. I just realized I don’t chew it anymore either so it’s no longer in my bag.

    Well anyway it’s funny to know that the glamorous and sexy Angelina Jolie also knows what it means to be that most noble beast of burden: a mom with a giant handbag.

  12. SpankyB says:

    She’s gorgeous AND charming. Not fair to us mere mortals.

  13. Mireille says:

    LOL on she and Zahara sharing the same Guerlain products! They also share the same purple maxi dress and white Valentino purse. Mother and eldest daughter twinning!!!! I wonder how Angie’s going to take it when her eldest daughter leaves the nest? She was pretty sad when Maddox went off to college.

    I also want to add…can’t wait for Those Who Wish Me Dead!!!!

    • Samanthalous says:

      The a special product, it supposed to encourage women to be bee keepers. It’s about $125

      • Mireille says:

        Really? I used to be a beekeeper for a semester in college. LOVED THE EXPERIENCE. Love bees. Was never afraid of them. Bees contribute a lot to the food industry — and they’re so cute, but have such a hard life. Especially the bumble bee.

  14. Samanthalous says:

    It’s vintage Celine, I usually or have seen her many times with an LV cabas which made me want one. As for the chocolate?

  15. Bibi says:

    We dont get to see her all the time, and not often thi sside of her, so i’m happy to see her and she is very charming. Very weird to be showing people what’s in your bag. but it’s funny. I like angelina.

    • Mle428 says:

      It’s 100% See’s. My mother in law gives them to us for every holiday.

      • Guest with Cat says:

        My mother-in-law gave us See’s for every holiday and special occasion, too. Sigh. She passed away in 2019 and we haven’t had any See’s since then.

  16. Tilewa says:

    She looks stunning.. and I love how totally relaxed she is in the video. Also love the picture with Shiloh and Zee where they’re laughing. Can’t believe how big the kids all are now.

  17. Singhsong says:

    I love the Guerlain memories. My grandma wore Shalimar by Guerlain, and I wear it because it smelled like her. My daughter always hugs me and says “oh, you have the mama smell”.

    • Shannon says:

      My mom wears Shalimar, too! It’s the most gorgeous smell. I used to wear it when I was young, too, to be like my mama. Then I decided I needed my own scent – but shalimar is still my favorite

  18. SM says:

    Hahaha. Maybe that’s a mom thing. When you have a child with a sweet tooth, you gradually start adding candy you enjoy yourself. Before you notice it, you carry one in your purse even when you carry your own rather than “mom” bag.

  19. Inhalemovieslikecandy says:

    Not too sure what those chocolates are but, hmmm, always down for a female-led action flick. I guiltily enjoyed Peppermint, which I understand was racist. Sorry!

    Sicario was very pretentious but liked Emily Blunt in the first one, though Benicio likening her as his daughter was too much. The sequel was all swaggering machismo energy, where Josh Brolin’s character, a CIA guy, takes pretty much all law into his own hands and delivers “justice” as he likes. The 15-year-old kidnap victim was fetishised in a semi-pedo way. Very male-gazey.

    Taylor Sheridan might technically be awesome but he was problematic also through Wind River, a film centred on two white law enforcement people (Jeremy Renner and Liz Olsen’s characters) coming to the rescue of hapless, dysfunctional First Nations community. None of the FN characters had any agency. Hell or High Water might be his best work so far, probably partly thanks to Chris Pine.

  20. Blerg says:

    Guerlain and UNESCO have a partnership Angelina is involved with to train women in different countries (Ethiopia, Rwanda, Cambodia, and China) to be beekeepers.

  21. Franklymydear... says:

    Of course she staged her bag before the video. Her actual bag probably looks nothing like that or at least not that perfect.

    • Gummy says:

      Think all of these celebrity handbags, politicians’ favourite books and music playlists, etc, are all staged. Some of them might be completely created by marketing researchers, who target given demographics with selections, and then finally signed off by the person in question. Gotta tick all the boxes for your audience.

  22. MsGnomer says:

    The See’s lollipops (like the chocolate one in her bag) are such wonderful treats. I highly recommend.
