Milk Chocolate is . . . Meh

Yeah, so, yesterday I bought a bar of Swiss milk chocolate with hazelnuts in. It was the third time in as many weeks that I have eaten milk chocolate and thought I shouldn't have bothered. I mean it was all right, but it just wasn't as fantastic as chocolate is supposed to be. Maybe I just bought cheap, crappy chocolate. Or maybe I need to just get dark chocolate, which has never disappointed me. Now if only I could find some dark chocolate with hazelnuts in. It's easy to find dark chocolate with almonds. Even Hershey's makes reasonable dark chocolate with almonds (and Hershey's dark chocolate used to be grainy and horrible). But no one seems to make dark chocolate with hazelnuts. Or hedgehogs. Has anyone ever seen dark chocolate hedgehogs? Mmm . . .

You definitely need to go high-end with the chocolate. I can't eat "commercial" chocolate without experiencing major disappointment.

So, hazelnuts are the key, eh? Any dislike of white chocolate?

Niko said...

Yeah, I've been noticing more and more that grocery store chocolate just doesn't do it anymore.

No objections to white chocolate, though it's not, strictly speaking, chocolate. Dark is still my favorite, though. And yeah, I love hazelnuts (but good chocolate is lovely naked, too).

Hmmmm. This chocolate thread reminds me of Christmas (the only time of year I indulge). Are you staying in the 'fax for the hols?

Dunno where I'll be. I had planned to stay here, since I went to BC last year--thought I'd go out west sometime in the summer. But I think Mum wants me around for xmas--at least so Sue had hinted. So I might be in Duncan (or Duncan and Victoria, as Dad said next time I should stay at his place part of the time so they get to see more of me).

What's with that weird Project 71 posting? WTF? Someone you know from school or just some random spam?

Whatcha up to these days? I'm heading to Fort Saskatchewan for the weekend to see an uncle - not actually family but we call him uncle, and he's a nicer uncle than any of my actual uncles. LOL.
