Can we ever have enough facts and knowledge about everything there is to know about chocolate? I want to know every little detail. I dearly love chocolate! I love the smell of it, I love the taste of it, I can't live without it! I'm addicted to it! We're like 2 beans in a cocoa pod. (or as some would say 2 peas in a pod.)
I've always wondered how many chocoholics there are in the world. Way too many to count! But I'm definitely at the top of the list! I have consumed so much, you wouldn't believe me if I told you how much actual chocolate I really have eaten in my life, it would sound unrealistic. Just believe me, I have no reason to lie about chocolate, unless of course, I'm stashing it. Then I'm prone to lie...Sorry. Not Sorry. 😀
I'm surprised my husband hasn't called for a chocolate intervention. 🙂 God help me if they build a choco-meter! I might be in trouble...Scroll on down and find all kinds of interesting facts, favorite chocolate finds and recipes!

i think the only thing i knew before this post was that switzerland dominated the chocolate consumption polls! and had no idea that cookie dough in a jar was a thing in teh mid 2000s; i feel like it's coming back. at least in socal, since a ton of places are making "edible" (people, it was always edible, it's just egg-free now) cookie dough nowadays.
