chocolate

Do you want to hear something funny?  I am not a fan of chocolate.  I know, I am a female, and as a woman I should like chocolate, right?  But, I don't.  Chocolate chip cookies?  Nope, not a fan.  I prefer peanut butter cookies, or snickerdoodles.  S'mores?  I would prefer to just roast marshmallows.  Dark chocolate?  Absolutely never.  Don't get me wrong.  I do like chocolate.  A good melted hershey milk chocolate bar?  Yeah, I like those, I think that has held over from my camp days.  Peanut butter cups?  Absolutely, who doesn't like peanut butter (well...besides those who are allergic).  But plain old chocolate does not do it for me.

I have been thinking about this recently because my daughter is IN LOVE with chocolate.  You may or may not realize that we are in the midst of potty training.  My daughter turned 3 in May.  She was completely potty trained for 6 months...and then I had my son Jack...and that was a year ago.  So my newest thing?  Chocolate chips if she uses the potty.  She actually has been really good for the past month, no accidents except at night once in a while.  But, honestly, if she wasn't getting the chocolate chips I'm not sure she would be doing it.  She is very good about reminding me that she deserves a chocolate chip for using the potty.  Granted, I don't always give them to her, not before 10 am, and not after 4pm, but she does end up with a chocolate chip bank and then seems to get several for a "snack."

I don't think I have ever met another woman who did not LOVE chocolate.  So I have to ask, is it all about chocolate in your life?  For me, I am rather fond of savory, and would typically choose that over sweet.  My daughter is clearly the opposite...as is my husband - can we say hershey's chocolate syrup directly in the mouth???  Do you LOVE chocolate?  Or do you prefer something different.  Don't get me wrong, I love sweets, but would rather have a sugar cookie or frosting over anything chocolate related :-)

  1. You have a fellow friend---I'm not a big chocoholic either. Although it's primarily because it legitimately makes me break out. If I eat ANY milk chocolate, I can show you one of three places that will develop a pimple within two days. So I'm sure you can imagine I'd prefer to stay away from it. If I want something sweet---9 times out of 10 I want fruit or something fruity tasting. ;)
