Probably a little every day - there's always something around the office. Can you not have it anymore?<br><br>

Not chocolate, but I bought a whole bag of these at lunch:<br><br><br><br>Had to stuff them in an out-of-the-way desk drawer so I forget they're there...<br><br><br>

Are you referring to real chocolates or the crap one finds at the convenience store? <br><br>I had real chocolates last Christmas.<br><br>- alec

Any chance I get. I really like these, and they're not even close to bad, calorie/fat wise. I was amazed at how yummy they are. Almost guiltless, too.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]. . . . like the devil in the deep blue sea.</font color=blue>

Oh I completely agree, huge difference between ordinary chocolate and the real deal. Lindt is pretty good, but Godiva's always been our Christmas tradition.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]. . . . like the devil in the deep blue sea.</font color=blue>

It has been about 3 days since I've ate chocolate. I think it was this...<br><br><br><br>I know...pretty boring but my little girl loves these so we usually keep a few in stock.<br><br>Of course my German friend says we Americans don't know what good chocolate is.

I eat chocolate pretty much every day. Dark chocolate, not the kiddy crap If it's not 60% Cacao then you can keep it!<br><br>

Same here, any chance I get.<br>I kinda regret it. <br>My weight is 215. If I quit eating sweets I could probably get my weight down to 190 or less.<br>Ever watch "The Closer?" Chocolate is Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson's biggest addiction.<br><br>

I once did a shoot for Cadbury. Almost lost my mind. 2 days in a small studio drowning in the constant aroma of chocolate being kept warm enough to pour smoothly. I never got to eat a crumb of it. But I think I gained 5 lbs just from smelling it. <br><br>

I have something with chocolate in it almost everyday. At least once a month I have a 70% dark chocolate bar.<br><br>

Definitely, I like the dark best. <br><br>Reminds me ~ when I was really little, I thought I was pullin' a fast one on my grandmother. I snuck into her baker's chocolate.

I can take it or leave it.

I bought an 85% cocoa bar a while ago. It reminded me of unsweetend baker's chocolate. <br><br>

a year ago, i gave up sugar as much as i could for 6 months. i just started this again about 2 weeks ago. i'll eat some foods that have sugar, but no more than 5 grams when i can help it (and i try and not even go that high). of course, this rules out chocolate and most sweets and candy. i am now eating lots of fresh veggies and malt-o-meal (zero grams of sugar). <br><br>we're shareholders at <a href="http://www.localharvest.org/farms/M6978">this farm</a> and pick up a huge bounty of fresh veggies every tuesday. members receive weekly shares of a wide variety of just-picked vegetables, approximately two grocery bags -- e.g., mustard greens stir fried in olive oil with a minced garlic clove . . . to die for. mmmm.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05

Re: Chocolate, how often do you eat? - 08/25/06 12:44 AM

I remember a saying by prophet Mohammed "Stay away from the harm of the two whites", meaning salt and sugar.. So, when you limit your sugar intake, does that include fruits? Since I was diabetic, I use some types of fruits as dessert (an apple or an orange after a meal).<br><br>An excellent investment in the farm.. Fresh vegetables every Tuesday is perfect, I love veggies.. My youngest son, Sulaiman, is addicted to salad (unlike other youngsters ).. But come on, if I pour the melted chocolate Steveg mentioned on your finger, you won't be tempted to take a lick? Mmmmm... Mmmmm... Mmmmm... <br><br><br>www.waleedsgallery.biz<br>

Re: Chocolate, how often do you eat? - 08/25/06 06:39 AM

i still eat fruits. i was never much of an apple eater, but i've recently taken quite a liking to them.<br><br>and, i'd probably savor every lick if chocolate was poured on my finger. i am *trying* to avoid sugar, but that doesn't mean i can't make an exception ever now and then. <br><br>like you, i am not too keen on dark chocolates, but a good milk chocolate . . . mmmmmmm.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
