I am a self-confessed chocoholic. I keep a bag of miniature Hershey’s by my computer at all times. At Easter I go berserk and stock up on Cadbury’s Creme Eggs. Halloween and Christmas are marked not by glass ornaments and creepy pumpkins, but by the enormous variety of individually wrapped candies.
I’m in sheer pig-chocolate heaven then.
But little did you know! that chocolate, eaten in moderation, lowers blood pressure. Or that chocolate drinks date back to 1100 BC? that chocolate is dangerous to cats and dogs?
Ah, but now you know. And here’s some more fun links to take you deep into the dark and luscious world of chocolate.
Chocolate High Heeled Shoes Even I, a die-hard sneaker fan would ooooooo and ahhhhh over these high heels. From Gayle’s Chocolates, each shoe is approximately 7″ long of delicious fashion in it’s own carry-all. Wouldn’t that make a great gift for Imelda Marcos?
You won’t believe these guys. The ultimate in chocolate shops – from bean to bar. Mast Brothers are uniquely dedicated to the fineness of chocolate to the point of simple amazement.
Chocolate Beauty Spa Ahh…on this one, I’m just saying no. No way.
The New York Chocolate Fashion Show Seriously? I can’t hold M&M’s in my hand for more than 30 seconds. How would I walk down a catwalk wearing chocolate underwear?
10 Unusual Things Covered in Chocolate Including the ever popular Choco Bacon, of course.
An advertising campaign for Zaini Chocolate. Prepare to giggle.
A four foot tall Chocolate Moose. Need I say more?
I admit to never trying chocolate bacon, my tastes run rather to Hershey’s with almonds. The occasional Mounds bar. Anything from Cadbury’s.
Which brings me to my final story. My husband, from England, admits that Cadbury used to truck in their mistakes to their farm. I said realllly????? ( A dream come true) Yes, he replied. They feed it to the pigs.
Oy. Now that smarts.
