As most of you know, I am a chocoholic. Nowadays, I can pass on most commercial chocolate bars. There are still a few that I'd find really hard to say no to, if anyone offered to share. These include; Smarties; M&M's; Kit Kat; Coffee Crisp; Crispy Crunch; and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

However, there are a few types that I WILL NOT SHARE!

1) plain dark or bittersweet chocolate
2) dark chocolate and burnt almond (Hershey or Cadbury)
3) Terry's Chocolate Orange (dark chocolate!)

I found a very cool quiz that determines what kind of Terry's Chocolate Orange you are at;

You rank 32 short phrases on a scale of 1 - 5. 1 being "not me" and 5 being "yummy", then submit your answers for results.

Here are my results:
Which Terry’s Chocolate Orange are you? You scored as a Plain Chocolate Orange
You are a Dark Chocolate Orange, seductive and lush. The darkness attracts and consumes you. It may not be as pretty or sweet as everything else, but its honesty
is refreshing.

Plain Chocolate Orange 94%
Chocolate Orange Bar 81%
Not a Chocolate Orange 69%
White Chocolate Orange (Snowball) 69%
Chocolate Orange Segsations 56%
Milk Chocolate Orange 50%
Tangy Chocolate Orange 31%
Mint Chocolate Orange 19%

The %'s behind each type of Terry's chocolate represent how likely you are to eat that type. Personally I would only even consider eating the first two types which are both dark chocolate. I would have to be incredibly desperate for a chocolate fix to consider the others! I knew I'd be a dark chocolate, but it was nice to have it confirmed in such a "scientific" poll! So take the challenge and let me know how you rank.

Well this post was a lot more work than usual, so I think I'll stop for some chocolate!

I didn't know Special Dark with almonds even existed! Now I'll be obsessed in my search.

Well, you may hate me for this but I think this is another of those "only in Canada" things we've talked about! So when are you moving north? lol!

Seriously though, I think that Hershey's and Cadbury's may have similar specilties in the US - but may be using another name. Check out their web sites.

We have chocolate regulations I've never understood. Let me know if you open an ebay store! :)

ebay store is too much work - besides I'd eat all the profits! You'll have to move! lol

Husband just came home from Trader Joe's with "73% Belgian Dark Chocolate Non-Pareils." Amazing! It's going to be very, very hard to keep from eating them all tonight. :)
