..sounds good...even though it's early a.m. for me...dark chocolate with lots of cocoa content...and sometimes melted down with delicious fresh cherries dipped into it...when cooled off...they are so good....i make them once a year during cherry season which is now!...mmmmmm...haven't even had breakfast and you have me craving chocolate covered cherries!
I used to be a complete chocolate freak - loved it anytime, anywhere - especially dark chocolate - but now . . . not so much. And I don't know why, but I seldom even think of it anymore. Once a week or so I have half a chocolate croissant, but even that doesn't appeal to me like it used to. I think its cuz I've been trying to stop eating fryed foods and sweets in an effort to reduce. and rich desserts went along with that. Chocolate doesn't even smell so good to me anymore! I should be a little sad, but I'm not, I think it means I'm growing up! woohoo!
Chinese chocolate is not the same as 'ours' for a while it was not impossible to find but you had to go across town for it. I tried Hersheys which just tastes like the cheap chocolate christmas decorations of years ago, then cadburys appeared in more places - but now I have lost my taste for any of it This is good news for my diet but I sometimes feel as though I am in mourning for it, and cigarettes that I gave up two years ago and only crack up about once a week and have one in desperation, but even that tastes disgusting! Lucky I have other vices to fall back on
Cadbury's changed to using Palm Oil that's why the taste changed and they didn't advise the public We refused to buy it here until they changed back... which they did... but then sent they Palm Oil stocks to Asia.
Sorry to hear that you are abit Wobbly on your pins there CM Do you fall over alot?
As I am on the opposite side of the clock to you all - it is 10 in the morning here and around 3 in the morning with you - it is hard to chat
However - I have most vices known to man except drugs, I have given up smoking and chocolate, most of my vices revolve around Sukie, my partner in 'crime'. And I get beer delivered by the crate and stay up late and sleep in late.
All you chocolate addicts - what other vices go with your addiction - except almonds of course as they don't count !!
also, am slightly concerned that I may have a brain tumor or other brain affliction and that is why chocolate no longer smells good to me - however, oatmeal raisin cookies smell scrumptious! If I lose my taste for those, then I will know I have not much longer to live!
i cannot believe this has been brought up from 4 months ago..... MMMMMM chocolate..... I was in England looking after my dad, and the very night i had to dial 999 as my dad seriously could not get his breath at all, and i think it was the almonds, i gave him...... i forgot i had recorded it here.
Had weight watcher chocolate bar tonight, with low fat custard. yummy
