A very serious discussion about chocolate...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So, Whole foods has brought a new world of chocolate to my door and I'd like to share some of my finds with you:

1. Chocolate from Iceland is an amazing thing: http://www.snerra.is/enter.html?targ...tml&lang=en-us

2. Local Ohio chocolate makers RULE: http://search.cityguide.aol.com/colu...er/v-116485845

3. These are so good that it makes my mouth water: http://www.jobyandmartys.com/pearliesbags.php

Please feel free to add any chocolate sites that you've found and your favorite kinds... I love chocolate and I am willing to try anything.

Oh, and I was recently sent this: http://www.greenandblacks.com/uk/pro...27&cid=6&pid=8

From the UK, it was amazing!

I love chocolate. Stopped by at Picard Peanuts this weekend on the way to my mom's and not only do they sell peanuts, chip nuts, etc, but the most wonderful chocolate. They make the best peanut butter cups I have ever had, and I have had many different peanut butter cups.

YUM!

Well living only an hr away from Hershey Park...Hershey is the only way to go for me. Thats the only chocolate I will eat in the form of candy bars. Im picky about chocolate I even have Dave trained during that "special wk" to get me a giant bag of mixed Hersheys bars and ice cream snickers...That way he never has to worry about going to the store all the time just to get me chocolate...LOL...

Godiva!!!

Godiva Chocolate Martini (<--- for chocolate lovers who also want a buzzzz)

1 1/2 shots of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1 1/2 shots of Creme de Cacao
1/2 shot Stoli vodka (or something lesser if you have to)
2 1/2 shots of half-n-half (fat free half-n-half works lovely)

Mix it all up in a shaker with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass.

For extra chocolate kick; dip the moistened rim of the glass into a plate of cocoa mixed with sugar.

p.s. this is a great drink for before Auntie Flo arrives in town! Makes PMS go by so much easier...

If it starts in Chocolate and ends with an "oooooooo" I'm there!!

Virtual chocolate does not make you fat (unless it forces you to buy real chocolate).

All these chocolates look absolutely great! I keep all of my chocolate in a cupboard that there is no way that the cats can get to. Back when I was even dumber than I am now, I had a dog that got into some chocolates I had carelessly left laying around because I was ignorant of what chocolate could do to a dog or cat. My dog got very sick and had to have his stomach pumped. Funny thing, Persi somehow knows every time I have chocolate, and he is right there trying to get some. I don't know why, he has never had any. And, he is never going to get any.
