What's Your Chocolate? Blog Hop!
Welcome to the What's Your Chocolate? Blog Hop. You can check out M Pax's website HERE for more blogs to visit. I've been doing my own drooling with anticipation while I thought about what my favorite chocolate was. I decided that my chocolate desires changed with the seasons.
I associate chocolate covered cherries with Christmas. In fact every year I buy a box to eat throughout the season. I can remember having a box when I was twelve that I shared with my brothers and sister.
During Easter, my chocolate takes on a different taste when it is chocolate covered marshmallows I crave. I can't wait until next year when I can share it with my granddaughter in the form of brightly colored tinfoil designs.
My summer favorite is M&M's peanuts. The chocolate doesn't melt in the heat (as long as you don't sit out in the sun with it).
My all time favorite would have to be chocolate peanut clusters. I remember my mother keeping a candy dish with goodies in it, when I was young. I loved lifting the lid of the cut glass candy dish and picking out one piece to eat after school. My mother loved that particular kind of chocolate also.
As much as I love chocolate, I don't eat it very often. Because of physical problems, I'm not supposed to have any at all, but I do indulge occasionally. I imagine that eating low-calorie chocolate would help, but it doesn't taste the same. Since I don't need to eat it to make me feel better, I will continue to take an occasional bite of chocolate and enjoy the seasons as they come.
