Can’t write . . . eating chocolate . . .

I don’t always eat sweets, but when I do, it’s usually chocolate.

Melt-in-the-mouth milk chocolate for me, although I understand if you want to be all healthful about it and eat dark chocolate.

Today is World Chocolate Day.

If you need an excuse to indulge . . . you’re welcome.

Here is a list of fair trade chocolate options.

    You are a woman after my own heart. I eat chocolate almost every day, sometimes a bite or two after breakfast. I enjoy the 70% cacao type, which I tell myself is more healthy than other kinds.

    Who knew today is National Chocolate Day? I’m IN!
    Thanks for the appetizing post, Arlene. 🙂

    I didn’t know this was such an auspicious day! Not a big fan of sweets, but a little bit of chocolate every so often is nice. Thanks for the excuse for eating some today.

      Same here – I cut back on sugar and other foods that turn quickly into sugar years ago. In most cases sweet doesn’t taste good to me anymore. I make an exception for chocolate, but I think it’s the melltiness of it that appeals more than the sweet. The melting away on the tongue is soothing. Enjoy whatever chocolate you choose!

    I was just about to have a chocolate ice cream cone….my latest summer craze. I found a brand of ice cream (Shaws) which is just like gelato – not too sweet and lots of chocolate flavor.
