    Not that anyone has ever said that but it seems to be implied. I can destroy a large Caramello Bar in seconds flat. My father in law devours chocolate and my Dad could too.


    Any guys here like chocolate?

    I like chocolate also. Preferably dark chocolate. My favorite was the chocolate I had while visiting Japan. Their's is not quite as sweet and has more of a coco flavor.

    I'm a milk chocolate guy myself. Let's make Hershey, PA the nation's capitol.

    But the underlying theme of this thread escapes me, too.

    Although I am always being told that the bandwidth is just about all used up and the internet is is going to have to go away for awhile.

    Dark is great, I get Lindt 70% cocoa. 80% is a little to bitter, any lower and way to sweet. And forget the flavored ones, just plain old chocolate.

    Not a major chocaholic, I just have a few pieces once in a while. Standard bar lasts about a week for me.

    Chocolate a cure for cancer? "Dark chocolate, as well as other forms of cocoa, contains "flavonoids" (aka bioflavonoids), substances that act as anti-oxidants in the human body. Like many other anti-oxidants, they prevent cell damage that can lead to organ damage and even cancer" [gasps] Thats all I needed to know [grabs coat, slams door, dog barks, engine starts, wheels screech]

    She looks delicious!

    Unfortunately, my liver doesn't like chocolate all that much anymore. The most I can handle is the chocolate coating on soft vanilla ice cream cones. The place I buy them from uses dark Belgian chocolate with 57% cocoa content.

    I hate (love) the Godiva store. Dark chocolate is my favorite. I even prefer the "Dark" versions of some of the candy bars out there.

    What happens when you eat it? Headache? Nausea?

    I love it, but only the really dark stuff, 65% or higher. None of that milk chocolate crap.
