Ode to Chocolate

Photobucket Image Hosting I love thee chocolate. I am so sorry flavors of vanilla, coffee, peach, and strawberry. I wish you could be "the one", but you are just not worthy of my most delectable, chocolaty, culinary friend. You each have a special place on my palate, but none can ever take the place of my beloved chocolate! My chocolate has seen me through the worst and best of days. You celebrate with me when thing are going well, and you indulge me when I am needing a lift. I have many calories, are full of caffeine, and go directly to my hips, but I shall never desert you, for you are my favorite dessert! It doesn't matter to me if you are bitter, semi-sweet, dark, hollow or solid. I love you served cold, I love to eat you warm and melting, and I love you in pie, cake, or cookies. I just love to eat you best! Chocolate, I heart you!

P.S. If time allows, check out my friend, "Chatting" on the side bar to the right and read her beloved ode to the ever delicious, "Pumpkin Spice Latte." As she says, it is "16 oz. of liquid pumpkin pie!" You are so funny and such a good writer, "Chatting" but I am afraid I do love my sweet chocolate friend best! :-)

Amazing I just finished eating a Hershey bar before sitting down at the computer. Chocolate is the best, hands down. I loved the ode.
