I could eat an entire (large) box in one go....I usually do actually, which is why I ration myself and don't buy them too often.

Salam alaikum

oooh chocolate... Smiley

I love one German-made whole hazelnut milk chocolate, which is just too yummyyy. I cannot come home without some of those in my suitcase.

I started eating Twix in Syria (they weren't very popular in SA back then)...after I saw the ad on TV: "Twix, sawa a7la" so sweet.  One for me and one for my sis, sawa a7la  Wink

Have to agree with Sr Fozia, ferreros are the BEST!  Cool

Thanks for the virtual sugar-buzz

Wow...sorry sis jannah...  our chocolate tastes are ENTIRELY different!  Putting fruit in chocolate is awful!  And raisins are a complete abomination! (Unless they're the golden raisins cooked in rice--then I will tolerate them.)  When I want chocolate, I want chocolate....not wafers and caramel.  And it must be DARK chocolate.  Why waste your calorie allotment on anything else!     And I never really got into the truffle thing.

So my votes would be:  Hersey's Kisses (Dark), Dove (dark), M&Ms (dark),  any kind of solid chocolate (dark).  And the only candy bars I like are Mounds, Almond Joy, and--maybe--Three Musketeers (if there were none of the the above choices).

Dark chocolate, or nothing!  madauntie

Actually Hershey's are the work of the devil, it's an abomination to call that stuff chocolate puke

I do like
 

Friends always bring me a family pack when they come back from the states (altho as it's the states it might just be your regular size packs which are the English equivalent of family sized). They last me about a day....I tend to be bouncygrins from the sugar rush for days after........

I am with you on the Lindt truffles Sis J! YummmmmmmY!!!

Actually, I don't like peanut butter in ANY thing (bad memories of forcing myself to eat PBJ sandwiches when the main course had pork in it back in grade school) - so I am a PLAIN M&M's fan!!! They only arrived in Prague the last few years, so I used to snack on them a bit too much

As for other favorites - I think the British ladies on the board will be familiar with this candy (I feel like I have posted this somewhere else though):



I think the Cadbury in England is also nicer than it is here in the States, or at least it's different . .

Also, one that I had quiet often in Prague and in one article I read recently, it was in the top 10 in Europe:



And as for here in the States:

1. See's Candies  and a local place store here in Portland (whose chocolates were once given in the Oscar baggies that are given to the celebrities): Moonstruck - they are about $3 for just ONE chocolate!!!

Check them out here: http://www.moonstruckchocolate.com/

It is indeed a marketing thing. It's so stoopid that my friends and I refuse to buy Yorkies purely on the basis that the advert ticks us off.

Chili?! Is that a spicy chocolate or what? Huh? Oh dear...I never imagined there are chocolates like that.

Anyway, I'm not a huge fan of chocolates and milk chocolates are the most ones I hate.Grin Don't get upset everyone. Tongue But dark and white chocolates are really fine with me.

Chocolate is surprisingly versatile (I only use it in sweet stuff).

You can use it in savoury foods, apparently it is absolutely delicious. I can see how chilli chocolate would be nice it would be chocolate with a kick, have you never eaten chilli sweets as a child the sweet gives way to the chilli its very moreish.

I think most of us forget that cocoa bean is not actually sweet, it's the tonnes of sugar and milk we add which gives us the end result we all know and love.

So apparently the record for the world's largest chocolate bar was broken today in Derbyshire with the bar weighing in at a quite incredulous 6 tonnes!!

Something rather disconcerting about a chocolate bar that you can use as a bed Wink


Here's a picture for those who wish to salivate bro

OMG Thorntons made that massive chocolate bar, they use good chocolate as well!!!

It would be so amazing to have a chocolate bed, you'd dream of chocolate, you'd wake smelling of chocolate, you could nibble on your bed if you woke in the night feeling peckish.....I want a new bed, I need a new bed....

I did it guys and gals!

Broke my chocolate ban - though apparently Sis J's is until Nov, lol!

I went to See's Candies - since it is not too far from my house, they opened teh store only in teh last two eyars or so, so since I was away, havent' had a chance to go there until today.
You can check out what they offer here: http://www.sees.com/index.cfm/custom_mix/select

Here is what I got (photo - can you re-size Sis J?? Sorry!): 2 milk chocolate butters, 2 light choclate truffles, and one Toffee-ette. Not eating them all now, just one of each - the lady who helped me gave me a free sample, as is there custom at See's Candies, so she initially offered my a coffee flavored one, but since I don't like the coffee smell or coffee chocolates, she gave me a dark chocolate buttercream, and let's just say that didn't last for long as I walked back to the car!

ahhahhah, that is good to hear Sis J!

Assuming Sr. Shahida is in England then? (haven't memorized everyone's location quite yet!) Yeah the Cadbury from England is different and better tasting than the Cadbury we find here in the States.

Actually, Galaxy is quite yummy, I think it may be better than Yorkie, though they are different types of chocolate. Galaxy is more creamy. Another cousin even said last night it was "amazing." I was snacking on the little pieces that it comes in while trying to study yesterday.
