    severe chocolate shortage by 2014 due to political unrest along the Ivory Coast. This story was in the British paper this morning. I think I will start stocking up on my Zingers. Prices are supposed to skyrocket this year and have already risen 10 % this year.

    Mine's big enough for a couple of years' supply -- maybe I should start hoarding?

    Guess I am lucky. I DO NOT LIKE Chocolate. No way, no how, ain't going to eat that nasty tasting stuff....nope not in my lifetime.
    Okay so I am odd. I already know that. But the smell of Chocolate literally makes me sick.

    Chocolate is our favorate stable, although I do have a friend who is actually allergic to chocolate. I always feel sorry for her but now she will feel sorry for us if we can't afford to buy it.

    I think that the chocolate would win in the battle of what we can afford to purchase...let's see....
    Chocolate....razor blades for hubby???
    Chocolate....hubby's favorite snacks???
    Chocolate....cleaning supplies???
    and the list goes on......lol

    (BTW, my husband will buy me the chocolate if he knows that I'm out...life is better with chocolate.)

    My late husband loved it, but that was one thing I refused to cook. If he wanted it, he made it. Somehow gravy was just not meant to taste like chocolate. I want my chocolate sweet with caramel.
