Wow. Guess that's what I'll have to get for my chocolate cravings in the future.

It's horrible how this stuff continues today!

They can't all be winners caprice. Actually, for my catering, I don't buy chocolate from any of those sources. I use mostly Valrhona, which is impeccably sourced and researched, and much of it does not hail from the Ivory Coast. You can check out valhrona.com for more info. I think it's the best chocolate availible.

Walter, my joke was in poor taste, and I certainly do not think that child slave labour is any laughing matter. I grew up in a family that often used humour to get through tragedies. It wasn't always appreciated by others, however. My apologies if I offended people. I pay almost double the price of Callebaut to get Valrhona chocolate, but at least I know where it comes from, and how it is handled and processed. I have no idea what this MP's joke was about Chinese food for sharks in England....this is a complete mystery to me.

Hmmmm, I wonder if there's a list out there somewhere that says which manufacturers are guilty and which are not? I guess if it's jumbled up chocolate we'd not really know unless the label specifies fair trade. I bought a bunch of fair trade stuff for xmas gifts this year from 10,000 Villages, including cocoa.

It's okay - I'd thaught so (sometimes I do [did] the same), but actually wasn't in the mood for such a joke at that moment.

In the UK, that started here:Tories disown cockler joke MP
.. and still goes on.

If you were buying candy and you had your choice of the following, which would you choose?

BABY RUTH
3 MUSKETEERS
BUTTERFINGER
SNICKERS
HERSHEY'S
ALMOND JOY
CLARK BAR
REESES PEANUT BUTTER CUPS
ENERGY BAR
CHOCOLATE COATED RAISINS




OK - Now that you've made your choice, this is what research says about You!

BABY RUTH ... Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all
warm fuzzy items. A little nutty. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day.

3 MUSKETEERS ... You are adventurous, love new
ideas, are a champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons.
When tempers flare up, you whip out your saber.

BUTTERFINGER ... Smooth, sexy, & articulate with
your hands, you are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and chew gum at the same time.

SNICKERS . Fun-loving, sassy, humorous. Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker, however, you are a friend for life.

HERSHEY'S ... Romantic, warm, loving. You care
about other people and can be counted on in a pinch. You tend to melt.

ALMOND JOY ... Sexy, always ready to give and
receive, very energetic, and really likes to get into life.
The opposite sex is always attracted to you.

CLARK BAR ... You like sports, whether baseball,
football, basketball, or soccer. If you could,
you would like to participate, but enjoy watching
sports. You don't like to give up the remote control.

REESES PEANUT BUTTER CUPS ..You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You are fun to be with. People like to hang out with you. You are a very warm hearted person.

ENERGY BAR .. Life is passing you by. Get a life!
Go eat a plum.

CHOCOLATE COATED RAISINS .. You go to the bathroom often.
