PostSubject: "American Chocolate Week"   Wed Mar 17, 2010 1:12 pm

All over the States, chocolate stores are having sales and giveaways; many factories that are usually closed to the public will open their doors during this week to give free tours and samples.

Bliss

In honor of Chocolate Week, let's talk about .... chocolate!

Which is your favorite?

I think my favorite chocolate candy bar is the Snickers. But I also love dark chocolate. I will be heading over to See's Candy Store and buying some delicious chocolate today. Cheer

Also... check out these shoes! What do they remind you of hmmm?? greenS

Nothing really beats a good ol' Hershey chocolate bar for me!




Of course, there are others too that I like, and I am trying to eat more dark chocolate since it's actually healthy (the 70% and up anyway, AND in moderation Wink ).


When I really want to splurge, I go for a Lindt truffle:

AHHH chocolate! I chose to give up chocolate for lent...and it isn't easy reading this delicious thread! LOL. I am a big chocolate lover - I love mostly milk chocolate but sometime dark is great too Thumbsup My favorite for chocolate candy is probably most things from Gertrude Hawks - they're a local chocolate company in northeastern PA and I've grown up with it. But unfortunately I can't celebrate chocolate week...I'll make up for it in a few weeks for Easter though grinsmiley

I like pretty much any kind of candy bar. Hey, Carol, I'm pretty sure I have tried See's Candy. I'm sure that is what my brother brought back from his trip to California. I ate several pieces of it, but think that Anthony-Thomas chocolate is better. So if you are ever in the Columbus area you should try some.

Oh, I forgot to say that real Belgium chocolate (actually from Belgium) is probably the best chocolate I've had. I got to try that courtesy of my brother, too.

Ohhhh, this is my kind of celebration! I love dark chocolate. Particularly Dove, Ghirardelli and Lindt.

Amy, the Lindt dark chocolate truffles are amazing. I don't buy them very often, because I try to keep my chocolate consumption to a moderate level . . . . but those are truly a taste-pleasing experience.

Those are my three favorites too Savannah (in the 'elite' category, anyway). Thumbsup My friend took a trip with her family to Hershey PA last year and visited the chocolate factory. Now there is a trip I could get into! Applause

I can keep dark chocolate in the house (the REALLY dark stuff) and won't be tempted to eat more than a couple of squares at the most. But I can't have milk chocolate here....I'll mow on it. greenS I'm incapable of eating milk chocolate 'in moderation'. Whistle

I agree! I have actually tried some chocolate from Belgium as well, when my boss brought some back. Really good! Thumbsup
