Are you a chocoholic? do you love eating chocolate?
Do you love to indulge in chocolate and hide it from other people in the house? or do you share it? Can you stop at just a few pieces or do you devour a whole block or a whole box and destroy the evidence?
Interesting question...I was just mentioning to a friend on FB how much I love this chocolate cheesecake...; however, I don't consider myself a "chocoholic." True, I enjoy chocolate - perhaps I should say it's somewhere between like and love, but not quite love. All said, there are a few desserts I enjoy more than chocolate - e.g., pies and pastries.
that chocolate cheesecake sounds devine! !
I guarantee you, Aussie, if you're a chocolate lover, there's nothing like it on earth. Godiva, as it stands makes the best tasting chocolates, period.
Um....YES!!! I LOVE CHOCOLATE. I'll sing it from the rooftops! From street corners! on YouTube!!!
Chocolate should be part of the food pyramid. Besides the fact that it is so delicious, relaxing and satisfying...it has health benefits too! Okay, maybe I'm a little biased.
I do, after all, have chocolate running through my veins!
And, yes, I have been know to hide chocolate from family members. Oh, come on, wouldn't you?
Yes definately - my dream snack is a lovely bar of chocolate with a hot cup of steaming coffee. This is a great way to get the creative juices flowing when stuck for topics to write about - well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!! LOL!
This is, as John says, an interesting question.
I enjoying eating chocolate and have come to appreciate good chocolate. Here in my little piece of Brazil, There is the , national brand, Hershey's or Nestle.
I lived in Europe for many years and the chocolate is far superior. Swiss and Belgian chocolate are excellent and it isn't only expensive brands. When people visit, this is one thing we request they bring.
With good chocolate I am happy to have just a small piece. If you eat too much the enjoyment value is lessened I believe. Plus that saves more for the next time to be savoured.
It has returned to being a luxury because it isn't readily available.
I still enjoy Hershey's occasionally but this is more a trip down memory lane than actual chocolate enjoyment.
I'm a chocoholic and proud of it! I eat chocolate every day. Because I live alone, I don't have to share my chocolate or hide it.
YES! I just love the stuff. I don't have to hide it, though. My husband and kids prefer salty snacks. If it is in my house, I will eat it all day long. And if I don't have any in my house, I will drink a couple of cups of hot cocoa just to tide me over.
I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate and I don't hide it from anyone! It's good and I like to treat myself and love when I get it as a gift!
I used to consider myself a chocoholic, but I only have it once in awhile now. I'm not sure what happened - I still love it, it's just not a food-obsession the way it used to be!
Absolutely! A little bit of chocolate every single day is just perfect in my book. I'm not picky, either. Milk and white are my fans, but I'll eat almost any variety.
Some days, eating just a few pieces is doable. On other days, the whole bar or block is devoured. I never hide the evidence, however. I actually enjoy it with my husband, who is also a chocoholic.
I don't got to the point of hiding the chocolate, the evidence etc. but I am definitely a big chocolate fan! i especially like dark chocolate.
No, I don't know why. It's not like I HATE chocolate but rather that I seem to have no desire for it. My wife on the other hand LOVES chocolate
A friend of mine used to work seasonally on the packing line at See's Candies. They were not allowed to remove any from the plant, but were allowed to sample all they wanted; she became sick of chocolate; even the smell of it. Chocoholic cure! LOL
Devout chocoholic, here. The darker, the better. Not so crazy about milk chocolate--it's not chocolaty enough to be worthy. Likewise so-called "white chocolate. That's just plain yucky, in my opinion; it has virtually no chocolate flavor, and tastes and feels more like a mouthful of vegetable shortening. Blah!
Chocolate does, indeed, have some health benefits, but as with everything else, moderation is the key. I have been known to scarf up half a box of Junior Mints at one sitting--or a whole box at the movies--but that's rare. The darker chocolate is more satisfying, and you need less. I have a stash of 80% dark...and I keep it well-sealed so it won't go stale..but I'll be happy with one square, and won't feel the need to eat the whole bar, whereas a bar of 'regular' dark chocolate, such as Hershey's "Special Dark," I have no problem or qualms about chomping down the whole thing.
And yes, when my kids were little, I hid my stash. ;-) Now that I'm an "empty-nester," I don't need to.
I very well could be a chocoholic. I am very drawn to most chocolate bars and dare not keep them around the house or I am known to devour them. I will share if they get there before they are gone.
I love love love chocolate and have learned to not eat tons of it at the same time! It's taken me years but I can now enjoy eating a few pieces of it at a time. Well, say 4 pieces:
I can binge though! And when I do, I can eat one whole Mars bar. Usually when I'm starving and driving somewhere and I feel lonely. And the paper in the car reminds me because I hate to clean my car.
Since my companion is worse than me at eating chocolates, I don't have to hide my wrappings but I would certainly hide them round people who are careful of their diets, who look great and are trim.
I'd say I'm a chocoholic that's controlling my intake (most of the time!!!).
Chocolate is so wonderful.
I am a chocoholic..LOVE LOVE LOVE chocolate..can't get enough of the sweet goodness..
Although I don't hide it and I do share it..
As far as devouring the whole thing, I try hard to use some restraint and hold back saving some for later..I never hide the evidence..It is quite visible on my hips and other areas, unfortunately for me.
chocoholic? i need counseling. when we make a trip back to the u.k we come back to peru with kilos of chocolate and i mean kilos.
We visit chocolate museums, chocolate factories dream about chocolate.
so i guess the answer to your question is ...errr yes.
Not by any means. Though I most definitely have a sweet tooth, chocolate has never been something that I crave, indulge or "just gotta have". In fact, a few months ago, I bought a chocolate bar - that's how seldom I eat chocolate. I ate about a third of it and put the refrigerator. (It was late summer/early fall, and I didn't want it to melt.) Funny thing is this, I totally forgot about it until I rummaged through the fridge a week later and came across it. I thought, "Hey! I remember this." I ate a couple more little squares then and finished it off the next week.
Me, no. Of course not.
*sees a bar of chocolate*
*chases after the bar of chocolate*
No one saw anything.
(Seriously though, yes I am. I take after my mom in that respect.)
I definitely love chocolate - it's one of my favorite food groups!
I used to be a secret chocolate eater, and always felt bad about it. But an intrenched habit is really hard to break, and truthfully for a long time I didn't want to. I've tried to tame my indulgences more recently, though - partly for me, and partly so I set a good example for my kids.
I like having little tastes at a time, so it seems more special. And I put whatever goodies I make or buy out for everyone to enjoy now.
I am not a chocoholic. I am just as happy with some fruit-flavored candy or caramels. I like chocolate and sometimes Mr. B, the family chocoholic, shares some of his with me. Once in a while I will get a .letch for a Hershey Bar. If it is a small one, I eat the whole thing. I can't resist those chocolate covered cherries at Christmastime, but I limit myself to no more than 3 a day.
I love eating chocolate but I'm not sure if I'm a chocoholic.
I love chocs since young but my hubby restrict my addiction because he fear i may contract diabetic as my family members have diabetic history. Hence, i eat a bar of 400g per month, only dark chocs.
I love eating chocolate, though not in excess so I would share it with others in the house other than hiding it... Or maybe I'd just sneak a piece of their block of chocolate... But a packet of buscuits is a whole different story!
Yes, I guess I qualify as a chocoholic. I eat a square most days and I do have my secret stash which I only share with those who truly appreciate it. I only eat dark chocolate, at least 65% cacao, and when my friends who travel abroad and ask what I'd like them to bring back for me, the answer is always dark chocolate. I love European brands like Lindt. A friend recently brought some 72% dark chocolate bars from Trader Joe's "Nirvana organic belgian chocolate". It's to die for! I wanted to eat some today but I'm trying to reign in my chocolate cravings so I can make it last for at least a month. : )
I LIKE chocolate, mostly the ones with added stuff like nuts and crackers and yogurt and nougart. Mhhmmmmmm!
I would prefer licorice most days though. Or icecream. Licorice icecream.

If you had the power to change one thing in our world what would that be?Think carefully before answering as any inane, pathetic and lame answers will be ridiculed and laughed at appropriately. If you could make one change in the world what would that change be. Would it be to make all food free...

So, I'm a pretty healthy eater (mostly), and I try to keep full with fiber-rich foods (whole grains, beans, etc), drinking water, and trying to eat lots of veggies, but I feel hungry all the time. I'm also trying to eat smaller meals more often, which I know is good, but sometimes is harder....
