Chocolate! Not even a close race. And the darker the chocolate, the better. And the dark, the better for you, actually. Dark Chocolate has chemicals that are good for you. I am a self-confessed cholaholic; I should have included chocolate in my post about “Can’t Say No.” I save room from my dinners out simply to have remove for the decadent chocolate dessert on the menu. Today I’m taking my granddaughters to “Rango” and then to CiCi’s pizza. We go there as much for the brownies as for the pizza. Not just me, but the granddaughters. too.
The only difference between my granddaughters and me on the subject of chocolate would be that they will eat milk chocolate and I do so only under duress. For me, the darker and more cacoa in chocolate, the better for my palate and the better for my health. I ration my chocolate intake so I don’t overindulge. But a small piece of dark chocolate filled with raspberries is my heaven of what heaven will be like.
I have nothing against vanilla. I actually like vanilla. I put vanilla in my coffee. Vanilla is an ingredient in my grandmother’s famous chocolate pie. Vanilla and chocolate go well together. But especially when it comes to ice cream, give me chocolate (deep and dark) everytime.
