New Chocolate fix

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Just in case anybody else is as big a choco-holic as me....

I found a new favorite for when I need a hard-core fix. It's called Hershey's Ultra-Dark. It is a VERY dark chocolate bar with chopped-up blueberries, cranberries and almond bits. It's supposed to be full of antioxidants, but it's also very yummy, and also too heavy to eat the whole bar at once. For me that's a good thing.

OMG! Yet another reason to eat from my favorite food group. I'll be giving this one a try.

That does sound excellent. With it being dark chocolate at least I can use the healthy excuse. I'll have to check around the stores in my area.

I stumbled across bars of it in the bagged candy aisle at Target. I rechecked the label, and it's "Extra-Dark", not ultra (sorry). This is what it looks like.

I don't know if they are avalaible in the US, but you should try the Pyrénéens http://www.lindt.fr/364/805/843/844.asp, made by Lindt in the former Rozan chocolate factory in Oloron (France) in the Pyrénées mountains. They must be kept in the fridge and eaten cold. Chocoolate with a mountain twist, a classical gift in France.

no no no

alcohol - dry..... eg vodka and grapefruit juice, gin & tonic, good coonawarra or northeastern victorian reds, dry whites, dry sherry, etc etc... (I'll make exceptions for a Chateau Yquiem(sp??) )


Chocolate - DARK, slightly bitter, rich, coat your mouth type stuff..... (White chocolate is flavoured suppository base & does NOT rate a mention as chocolate of any kind)....

good dessert wines all exempt - because I love my Tokay & Muscat & Port.... they might be sweet but not ever sickly ......

Oh other exception - the dark chocolate with Glenfiddich(??? I think it was that) in it - it passes muster as acceptable blend of alcohol & chocolate

The correct spelling is actualy 'Château d'Yquem', frequantly abreviated as 'Yquem'. (Probably a unique opportunity for me to correct someone's spelling on this board. Could not miss it ).
One of my most esctatic wine moment have been with a vintage Yquem indeed, and though, as you do, I usualy love my alcohol dry.
Good sweet wines ('dessert' wines) are actualy very good with ewe or blue cheese, just like brits use to have porto wine with their stilton. They should not be reserved to sweet desserts (sweet on sweet is sometimes too much IMO).

Sweet on sweet a bit much.

And she missed her chance to cry up Ozzy stickies.

Thanks - I knew it was wrong but did not know how....
yes - memorable wine indeed!

oh yes - sorry - my Tokay, Muscat, Port etc is almost always after dinner & frequently with cheese, fruit etc.... (pears good cheese & a nice glass of wine mmmmmmm)

Sherry, champagne etc before dinner....

My father is responsible... I grew up given creme de menthe etc for upset stomachs and a glass of brandy(cognac) to sniff if I had a cold... as i got older i sipped the brandy..... (when young I sniffed & he drank it for me)....

Needed:

warm (preferably feather) bed
warm (preferably feather) quilt
Brandy bottle, glass
One sock.



Instructions:

Put one sock on foot.

Get in bed.

Pull quilt up until sock is visible.

Drink until both feet have socks on them.

Cold will not be among your problems at wakeup.

*The one not involving garlic.

my fathers version (for adults not kids - kids only sip brandy)

Turn on electric blanket
Drink brandy
Boil kettle
Juice 2-3 lemons
put lemon juice in mug
add some honey & fill with boiling water
DRINK - FAST (ie as hot as possible)
maybe more brandy
get into bed - turn off electric blanket
throw as many blankets on as possible
SWEAT!!!

all bedding will need washing in the morning - but he swears it kills off the colds
