    Re peanut butter cups- which do you prefer? The standard kind that comes 2/pack or the mini ones which statistically speaking contain MORE chocolate percentage wise, or so it seems. (minis for me. )
    Also re just plain chocolate - milk or dark? I have always preferred the dark, which seems to act more quickly when I've just got to have a fix.

    I love chocolate. I love to put it together with super saturated fat (butter), super refined white sugar, whole milk, vanilla and then put that on top of the chocolate I bake together with sugar and flour. I adore chocolate cake I make myself.
    But there are two sides to my psyhie...the part that knows there is chocolate cake, and the part that knows there is chocolate cake.
    Thats why I march into the kitchen at 0230 and eat several pieces of that fresh cake, because, if I ain't had none all day, my body will wake me up from a dead sleep to get some.

    I don't care what people say. I spent years of my life undernourished and eating disordered. I kick myself now, because I missed out on all that good chocolate! It's not unusual for me to eat some form of chocolate in report everyday (7am, mind you). Breakfast of champions, I say. And I'll skip any meal, for dessert. Nothing holds a candle to my beloved chocolate (although spaghetti with lots of mushrooms and peppers comes close).

    Cookies, cake, candies... I love them all. I love them so much I sell them now. Got myself a little side business. Not gonna be a nurse forever. I'm gonna open a bakery. Then, I will finally eat, sleep, and WORK chocolate!

    Gotta go... hungry now

    Chocolate-food of the Gods. My dentist says that the wax in chocolate will coat the newly cleaned teeth and prevent cavities! another benefit of CHOCOLATE! (I think my dentist is a chocolate addict just like the rest of us)
