    • I like chocolate as much as the next passionate person. I prefer white chocolate as it seems to be smoother. Of course dark chocolate is best over caramel.

    • Not to burst your bubble but white chocolate doesn’t have one trace of chocolate in it. It is milk, butter and sugar. All tasty, but will give you none of the wonderful benefits of true chocolate. Like wine, sometimes one can start light and work their way to the truer stuff. Once you eat real chocolate, one can never go back. My husband received a box of Dove and thought, what a cruel twist of fate. Last year, before Xocai, we would have that thought a box of Dove was wonderful. Now, totally unpalatable.  :^(
