White Chocolate

I like chocolate. I try not to eat too much (it's not good for my waist line or migraines) but I do like the odd bit now and again. I like good chocolate (think Thorntons or even better Hotel Chocolat) but I'm also partial to the everyday confectionery type chocolates as well. Whenever I get to choose a chocolate I either choose the coffee flavoured ones or I go for the white chocolate ones -- I even recently had a coffee flavoured white chocolate truffle!

I assume that the rest of the British population isn't like me when it comes to white chocolate. Whenever there are special editions of well known chocolate bars they never seem to involve white chocolate. If you head to the continent though this changes quite dramatically. In France last year I ate a white chocolate Twix and in Munich I bought a white chocolate chunky KitKat. Both of them were fantastic. Come on people why can't we have white chocolate special editions in the UK?

Sorry, Mark, but white chocolate is an oxymoron. If it's white it's not chocolate. If it's chocolate it's not white. QED.

True but it is sweet and tasty!

I have to say that if I just want chocolate then it has to be a bar with 70%, or higher, cocoa solids. Now that really is chocolate.
