Thread Name: BS: What is the best chocolate?
Subject: RE: BS: What is the best chocolate?
When I was in charge of the gourmet shelf in a grocery store almost 60 years ago, I developed a taste for Cadbury's Shortcake Snacks.. ate them like... ummm... candy.
When I moved East 40 years ago, they were hard to find. Finally, some Brits began coming to the Getaway and stayed with us several times.
As a gift one brought me some Cadburys. I savored those for weeks.
I do like other types of chocolate ... especially good Belgian- and I don't mind the 60-70% type. At this time of the year, various stores begin offering 'sales' on Lindt and a couple other of those individually wrapped treats. COSTCO always has the best prices.
I can't afford the really good stuff often, but every now & then I splurge...
The problem is, Cadbury USA is now owned by Hershey, and there IS a DIFFERENCE..*sigh*
