I love chocolates. But only the expensive ones and only dark chocolates. No Made-In-Malaysia stuffs for me. Not because I am snobbish. I figure – if I go for something expensive, then I can’t afford to eat it all the time, right?
I have chocolates in stock most of the time. I have a bar of Lindt and a tube of Toblerone in my granary right now. I will buy Famous Amos chocolatey chocolate cookies on weekends. I also have a tub of Baskin Robbins in the fridge. Hot cocoa by Hershey’s in the evening.
I don’t know why but I think chocolates keep me sane. I don’t have PMS, do I? You don’t read so much ranting over here, right? And I am full of lurve because chocolate has pheromone? You know, like the queen bee that go buzz, buzz, buzz? And thousand of soldiers serving her majestry queen bee?
Chocolate also keeps me healthy. See this news?
Dark chocolate may be good source of flavonoids,
Scientists have proven that dark chocolate has the same type of flavonoids that antioxidant rich foods such as green tea, red fruits and vegetables, and red wine do. High blood levels of flavonoids contribute to good cardiovascular health and may lower the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Source
Now, I wonder if I am going to enjoy the movie, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? I guess not because I do not like any books by that silly old man Roald Dahl. Like the Cat in the Hat type of story? I do not allow my kids to read his books too. They are silly enough without further poisoning.
But the storyline seems yummy.
A young boy wins a tour through the most magnificent chocolate factory in the world, led by the world’s most unusual candy maker.
I may end up in chocolate heaven too. So, instead of giving me diamonds, my atm ended up giving me chocolates most of the time. Then again, in Malaysia and especially Penang, where can I find decent taste chocolates other than Lindt? Some of those so-called handmade ones only look good but taste lousy.
Did I mention that I want to go to Switzerland one day? And live in an alpine villa made of chocolates. If I cannot afford to go there in my lifetime, I have asked my atm to scatter my ashes over at some chocolate factory.
Ahhh…I love chocolate. Please tell me you do too.
