CHOCOLATE

Most of my girlfriends love all kind of sweeties especially chocolate & I do not know why I gave them any impression that I love sweet too (I am a strange female, I do not appreciate sweeties like all other females do, I can only have one or two sweeties every once in a while).  But still this year, I got about 9 boxes of chocolates as christmas gifts.  One of them is souvenir from Colombia - Jet chocolate and a solid guava snack (a delicacy of Colombia). I got to say, "they are really not bad"!   And that give me an idea to do some research and found out it's the best selling chocolate in Colombia -- and, for good reason.  Instead, I have fascinating information to share (OK - maybe you might not find this as interesting as I do but here it is anyway).What's the best selling candy around the world, you ask? Well, check this out.

*U.S. - M&M's *United Kingdom - Cadbury's Dairy Milk *Germany - Milka *Brazil - Trident *Japan - Meiji (this leads me to believe that Japanese people do not know their chocolate; or maybe I have yet to meet a good Meiji) *Russia - Orbit *Mexico - Trident *France - Hollywood *Italy - Vivident *China - Hsu Fu Chi (their soft candies are really good) *Australia - Cadbury's Dairy Milk *Poland - Orbit *Spain - Trident *Czech Republic - Orion *India - Cadbury's Dairy Milk *Argentina - TopLine *Ukraine - Roshen *Canada - Trident *Chile - Ambrosoli *Saudi Arabia - Galaxy (aka Dove) *Israel - Elite *South Africa - Beacon Sweets & Chocolates *Romania - Orbit *Colombia - Jet *Thailand - Halls

More information can be found right... here.

JUST A LITTLE FRIENDLY REMINDER - NO MORE CHOCOLATE FOR CHRISTMAS, BIRTHDAY, VALENTINE AND ANY OTHER HOLIDAYS PLS.  IT WILL TAKE ME QUITE SOME TIME TO FINISH ALL THESE NINE BOXES OF CHOCOLATES!  MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Quality chocolate is important for health. Emulsifiers, lecithins, waxes are used to artificially induce a smoother chocolate with less mechanical stirring. Warren Buffet's See's Candies prides themselves on the churns and natural aspects of avoiding "wax additives". The United States is more of marketing on happiness and other qualifiers over quality or health. It would be really interesting to see how our chocolate stands up on a premium quality level in European/S. American standards.
