Ah, chocolate. I have a sweet tooth, I'll admit that freely. I get it from my Daddy, who always has to have chocolate in the fridge. One of the things my Naturopath and Acupuncturist said I had to cut was chocolate, because it heats me up, apparently. I've cut my chocolate consumption right down, but I still have a little bit every few days.
My favourite chocolate is Whittakers Dark Ghana. It's so rich, you can only have a few squares at a time. And they're a New Zealand brand, so that's an added bonus! It can sometimes be hard to find all their varieties here, and when they bring out a new flavour in New Zealand it can take a while for it to cross the Tasman, but I can generally find the Dark Ghana fairly easily. Whittakers are also supporters of Fair Trade, and don't use palm oil or genetically modified ingredients in any of their products, so they're a good choice!
I also have a huge weakness for Guylian Seashells. The hazelnut praline in the centre is just divine. Guylian Seashells are my preferred chocolate bribe, in case you ever need me to do you a favour!
Chocolate is very much an emotionally comforting food for me. I crave it when I'm hormonal, or emotional. Chocolate is also great to share! Most people won't say no to chocolate. What's your favourite chocolate flavour?
