    Okay....this is the time of year most of us consume chocolate or more chocolate. More chocolate for me!!!

    I love milk chocolate however Im also partial to white chocolate. Especially at Easter and its a white chocolate bunny.

    But if you were given one choice, what would it be?

    Oh yes, I discriminate. It must be Hershey, Ghirradelli or a quality European import. None of that cheap off-brand imitation stuff that fills the shelves on holidays.

    Sorry, I can't vote in the poll. I've never been a big chocolate fan. But my sister loves Orange Chocolate. That's not on the poll.

    Well...if I get any this year I'll send them to you. :)

    Oh Charlene I forgot about those orange chocolates. They could go under Other.
    Hershey has Kisses that are candy cane now. Those are okay, but I don't exactly go crazy over them.

    Dark chocolate. Toss in the nuts as an option. Like milk chocolate, too. Can't stand white chocolate. I have yet to taste a chocolate better than the Australian brand 'Cadbury's'. And I've tasted a few!

    Chocolate loves me, too. You can tell just by looking at how it has clung to the place where my waist-line used to be.

    What are M&M's? Dark chocolate?

    When I want chocolate I don't want nuts, ice cream, any variation of chocolate....I want CHOCOLATE!!! Nothing to interfere.

    I'm feeling rather pudgy the last few days.

    I just noticed no one picked white chocolate.

    From Chololate: The Consuming Passion -

    Some would argue that the lack of chocolate liquor means that white chocolate is not "real" chocolate. They are quibbling. The same purists would probably argue that fructose and water is not "real" orange juice.

    Oooh. Milk chocolate. Smooth, creamy, delicious. YUM!!! Peters (Nestle) is ok, but the good stuff is Callebaut from France. Ghirradelli makes a decent one, too.

    Dark Chocolate.....it's the real deal. Anything else is like drinking Decaf coffee or smoking light cigs...what's the point?
