HaHa, menumaker has it right! Seriously, if you love chocolate it is hard to think of something you wouldn't like.

As an edit to my original post I would say that practically ALL chocolate is my "favorite', it's just that which one is my favorite depends on what I have a taste for at that particular moment. It's like kids: you love all your kids equally, it's just that sometimes you like one more than the others.

I am with you on that. I think the milk products mask the taste of the chocolate. That is why I don't like chocolate ice cream.

Actually chocolate ice cream is the only one kind I like, generally I will eat ice cream but could not care less if I do not have it,

Can go on without for month.

The last time I had ice cream was over a year ago. One scoop is all I can handle at a time. A small scoop.

"None" to all of the above I'm afraid. If all the chocolate in the world fell into a deep hole it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

I think I have the distinction of being the only person on the earth who doesn't like chocolate!
