Ah, well, that makes sense then. I'm lucky, as I don't have any allergies to speak of. Well, except for that one time I ate tons of peanuts and chocolate and had a very bad allergic reaction to it, but I was never able to reproduce it (though of course I wasn't really trying to). But for some time my parents said I should eat mainly white chocolate, which I really disliked. I don't like white chocolate. I like dark chocolate. With as much chocolate as possible. 85 %, and more. Baking chocolate, even!
How did you go from discussing allergies to various colors of chocolate in a single paragraph?

I like both, although I prefer milk chocolate. Dark is too bitter for my tastes.

Nice song. And of course, it's true. But I did not choose to rule the world, I was appointed to be the ruler of humanity by the supreme rulers of the World, the communist Penguins. I'm just doing my duty, and try not to meddle in the general politics of the world.

And trust me, it's not as much fun as all those megalomaniacs make it out to be. Lots of paperwork.

How, you ask? Gradually, for once.


I really don't know why so many Americans like milk chocolate and don't appreciate dark chocolate. I mean, I'm not complaining. After all, there's too many people blind to the wonders of dark chocolate over here too. But at least there's also ones that appreciate dark chocolate.

Of course dark chocolate is more bitter. Chocolate is not sweet, it only gets so if you add sugar. But naturally, chocolate is bitter.

I'm sure you didn't mean it like that, but that does sound like you're advocating euthanising the visually impaired...

Whoops, I didn't mean it that way indeed. I meant people blind to the wonders of dark chocolate. I'll have to correct that.

That's because you haven't tried this yet:



It's made of the Criollo bean from Venezuela (65% cocoa) and is made in Switzerland by Felchlin.
It's divine!

Speaking of Dark Chocolate...it's a lie that woman prefer sweeter, milk chocolate.

Or maybe it just emphasises the fact that I had awesome classmates in the International School.

On my Graduation class's bonding trip, we girls were sharing one room (only 5 girls in my class). I had brought some dark chocolate, and when I got it out, everyone was really excited and said they loved the stuff. I of course offered them some, and they gladly took it. And that was the really dark stuff, "Santo Domingo" with 85% cacao, and "Sao Thomé" with 75% and pure chocolate bean splinters. Delicious!

I don't like dark chocolate. But that is because I have poor taste.

No buying online? Granted, the freshness would suffer, but still.

If you really want to learn about chocolate, search out a specialized shop and ask for help. I once was at a chocolate tasting arranged by such a store, and I can wholeheartedly recommend it. There is much more to fine chocolates than just the percentage, you know. I still don't eat much chocolate, or remember much about the different qualities, but it was really fascinating to hear about the world of cacao. And great to taste it!

My sister recently went to an arrangement like that in Stockholm at Chokladfabriken. That's where I got the bar of fabulous chocolate I've mentioned twice now here in chit chat.
