There are a couple of things that make me wonder a bit about chocolate. Specifically that wherever it’s been introduced as a flavor (say as a candy or in an ice cream) be it in parts of Asia, Africa, the Middle East, what-have-you, it generally becomes the number one flavor in that product category in a few years’ time. When you consider how many different culinary traditions there are in the world, the fact that everybody seems to love chocolate with a equal passion is rather weird.
Also, though it flies in the face of all of yesterday’s posts, is this. The wife swears it’s true, and I of course just tell her it’s nothing but a convenient excuse for her to eat more chocolate. But we do have a very happy little girl.
