What am I not getting about CHOCOLATE?

koreankorean | May 2, 2007 10:57 AM

I've never been a big fan of chocolate, milk, dark, white etc.. I like it and I will eat it if it's in front of me, but I rarely go out of my way to seek it out.. Also, I've always been puzzled by friends who swoon at the sight of chocolate cake, chocolate ice cream etc..

Then I started thinking.. maybe it's because I haven't really had GREAT chocolate yet in my life. I recall that I felt similarly ambivalent about shabu-shabu, steak and fish tacos until I tried the "real thing". Normally when I do eat chocolate, I eat Lindt, not too much Godiva (as I actually dislike Godiva as opposed to just being ambivalent), etc. I did notice in my travels that chocolate I ate in Europe were rather tasty. But since I don't live in Europe but here in the US, what kind of chocolate should I look for so I can find out once and for all that I really am not a fan (or discover that I am after all)?

Can you help turn me into a chocoholic? I want to fit in!!
