Blogfest: What's Your Chocolate?


Today I am participating in the What's Your Chocolate?" Blogfest hosted by the wonderful people you see listed on this picture above. lol.

Check out their wonderful blogs (and books!).

Okay, so for this blogfest, we are supposed to:

Post about your favorite chocolate – what it means to you, where and when you indulge, a favorite memory – anything chocolate-related."

So...

1. My favorite Chocolate:

Hershey's Dark Chocolate.


Many people don't like dark chocolate, but I swear when I eat it, I feel loads better! AND diabetics can eat it! I am not a diabetic, but my Daddy is and I tell him as a treat, he can have a square of dark chocolate now and then to satisfy his sweet tooth. Because of this, eating dark chocolate doesn't make me feel like I cheated on my healthiness. Yay antioxidants! lol. 

Now, I don't eat chocolate often, but when I do, I probably had a particularly off-day, or maybe I don't feel good. My favorite thing to do is freeze and entire bar and then break pieces off and eat them like that--for some reason, it's just better! I definitely remember days during my undergrad where I'd be studying and just stop, sigh and say, "I need some dark chocolate." Aladdin would run to the gas station near us and get a bar, and he'd get something like a Dr. Pepper (his caffeine) and it definitely made studying easier--it must have magical focusing abilities or something. :) 

What's your favorite chocolate? Or do you even like chocolate? lol.

  1. I love all forms of chocolate, but eating dark chocolate,for some reason, never makes me feel as guity.

    And I have to agree, Dr. Pepper must have magical focusing abilities- I'm totally addicted to drinking it while writing!

  5. Dark chocolate is my fav, too. And I put it in the fridge...but am with my mother in law in Florida right now and we have a bag of Hershey's dark in the freezer. I guess your way is more popular. :)

  7. I adore great chocolate, but I've never really been a fan of it frozen. I love to have it room temp so I can revel in the flavors and the way it melts in my mouth.

  8. Chocolate is my life.

    Okay, not really, but I enjoy it greatly and like you, I find it motivational. My absolute favorite kind of chocolate is dark with violet extract, though I have yet to find that in the US. :( I also settle for dark with sea salt, or just plain dark if I'm feeling traditional.

  17. Of course you feel better after chocolate! The doctor says it's good for you and it's still over the counter medication. How sweet is that?

    I'm all over hot fudge sundaes in my Chocolate Post today.
