  1. I love chocolate. I am a chocolate snob. I'm also a beer snob. Not much of a wine snob though...it gets too expensive to be that selective...

    Anyhoo...My opinion is that it MUST be dark. No wimpy milk chocolate for me...

  6. dark, rich, chocolate. it's just indescribable sin.

    milk chocolate and white chocolates seem too sweet to me, but then i am from the dark(chocolate) side so my views are strongly tainted.

    Lilith, since this is your thread and everyone else is getting high for me, you must eat some chocolate for me. I'm afraid that I'll have to insist on it, actually! I'm not into dark chocolate, so much, but since you dig it, that kind will do. Thanks in advance!!!! :)

  13. they should have marijuana chocolate.
     
  14. So, out of curiosity, I searched to see if there was marijuana chocolate. I was surprised at what I found:

    "Chocolate, Marijuana Separated At Birth

    NEW YORK (Reuters) -- A bar of chocolate may do more than boost calories. According to a letter in this week's issue of Nature, chocolate contains a substance that mimics the effect of marijuana -- albeit at much more subdued levels."
    continued at: http://www.personalmd.com/news/a1996082201.shtml

    "Researchers at The Neurosciences Institute in San Diego have found three substances in cocoa powder and chocolate that "could act as cannabinoid mimics either directly (by activating cannabinoid receptors) or indirectly (by increasing anandamide levels)"; they reported this finding in a letter published in NATURE, August 22 1996.(1) Anandamide is a lipid normally found in the brain "that binds to cannabinoid receptors with high affinity and mimics the psychoactive effects of plant-derived cannabinoid drugs." The letter suggested that there might be some pharmacological effect of chocolate which may help to explain its popularity.

    Incidentally, none of these chemicals were found in white chocolate. Espresso coffee was also tested, and none were found.

    Although not discussed in this letter, the mechanism of action of the chemicals would suggest that chocolate might increase the effect of marijuana."

    They're actually discussing researching the ability of marijuana and chocolate compunds to treat AIDS! Who would've thought that something so good could be so...good...
     
  15. I only have one thing to say to that...

    HOLY CRAP!!
     
  16. Ok now that is just crazy. But you have to admit it's true, I always feel good after a little chocolate.

    As per this thread, have to go with the milk chocolate myself, nothing like a high quality bar of chocolate. Though I can't stand the Hershey's stuff
     
  17. what??? are you busing on Hershey's?? OH GOD... don't get me started..I used to work at Hersheypark
     
  18. It just tastes so processed!

    Hersheypark though, lol, I went there when I was really young one time...that place is crazy!
     
  19. im a strict chocolate with the mushrooms in them person...
