"Okay, Matt, I am going to try the ones you have suggested. However, I might have some trouble finding them here in Fort Worth. Godiva is about as exotic as it gets here in Cowtown. I will do my very best to search out your selection. If anyone in…"

Most memorable chocolate experience:
My most memorable chocolate experience came when I realized that my mother(who passed away in 2003), my daughter and all 3 of my granddaughters (14, 9, and 3) share the same passion for chocolate that I do. Someone needs to do a research study to see if it is genetically linked. Could there be a chocolate gene? I volunteer my family to be their "guinea pigs". We are willing to make the sacrifice!
My favorite chocolate is:
Boy, that's hard...I think I would have say Dove and The Sweet Shop Raspberry Truffles

Chocolate is made from cacao. Prevailing wisdom is that chocolate should taste of cacao in the same way wine should taste like the fruit it is made from. Chocolate makers take pride in talking about their beans in the same manner wine makers like to pay homage to the grapes. Dove has no actual taste of cacao left after the intense processing and HEAVY vanilla additions. You should introduce yourself to the flavor of cacao. Fine chocolate should have taste nuances worth talking about just like wine. I recommend starting with, Amano Dos Rios (think freeze dried blueberries and bergamot). Then try Patric Madagascar and think bright acidity from thins like red fruits, citrus and grape skin. I guarantee your mind will be blown and you will forget all about Dove, which does not really taste like cacao.
