I only have to watch the film 'Chocolat', or read the book, for my cravings to start. (It's how I broke a tooth recently, searching for something to satisfy my craving, but that's another story...)
Just reading this makes my mouth feel all deliciously chocolaty, as I imagine my tongue coated with a rich, dark creamy layer of pure enjoyment.
So, can you imagine how it was when I decided to knit a piece of chocolate cake and how much I wanted to eat the piece my mouth so desperately craved?
A rich cup of freshly brewed coffee with a piece of dark chocolate on the side (70% cocoa at least) is also a real treat. I've always loved dark chocolate and at Easter, while my brothers had their collection of milk and sickly white chocolate eggs, I had one dark chocolate ege amongst my milk chocolate selection.
I confess I'm not a great Hot Chocolate drinker, maybe because it's disappointingly sickly with that awful gritty after-taste, without any tantalising taste bud-seducing caress.
I'm sure Vianne's hot chocolate would be something far more delicious.
I have acquired a taste for the best chocolates such as Thornton's, though occasionally I yearn for the Marathon (bizarrely renamed Snickers) or Crunchie bars of my youth. There was also an Amazin Bar which was half dark and half milk chocolate and contained raisins. I just adored this, but it didn't last as apparently no-one else did. Anyone else remember these?
Tesco once had a divine chocolate yoghurt in the 1970's that was a rich paradise of milk and dark chocolate flavours that made my tongue weep with joy! That, too obviously wasn't liked by the masses and was sadly, discontinued.
