What's Your Chocolate? Blogfest

Do you love chocolate? Does the very word make you drool with anticipation? Join the “What’s Your Chocolate” Blogfest and tell us all about it! Post about your favorite chocolate – what it means to you, where and when you indulge, a favorite memory – anything chocolate-related.

Suggestible? I'll say I am.
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.

How about you? Do you like Chocolate?
