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.
