…WHITE CHOCOLATE! Duh!
Yesterday, we saw a photo (above) of Vanessa Hudgens sampling a white substance while at Coachella, and we figured it MUST BE vanilla pudding or pixy stick sugar or something along those lines!
As shocking as this may sound, some people have been speculating that Vanessa was experimenting with illegal substances whilst enjoying her Coachella experience, but a rep for Hudgens says that the substance was melted white chocolate.
Of course it was! What better way to fully appreciate the subtle nuances of Animal Collective's musical stylings than under the influence of Hershey's! LOLz.
Do U think Vanessa Hudgens was actually sampling melted white chocolate? Or do U think it was actually….dark chocolate? Ha!
