Banning chocolate -what a national disgrace - warrants marching in the streets and overthrowing the government.

No chance of that here in PNG!!!

Will log into the site and have a read
Cheers

Probably the Swiss didn't like the chocolate because it was still grainy in the 1600s (before conching was invented). You know what perfectionists they are.

Wow! I can't imagine my life without chocolate...
My cousin actually lives in Switzerland and sends lots of much needed fixes for our cravings. :-) I like Belgian brands too: I like them a bit more actually, because I feel they are smoother and creamier.

Thanks for the info and the link to the cake recipe! I'll definitely try it sometime. Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment too!

I visited the Alprose chocolate factory and the company's Museum in Switzerland - gorgeous - free samples! Nearby there was a real Swiss cow - complete with bell!
