Finding a Kinder Egg by my bedroom door each morning. My grandmother would leave one there whenever she visited from Germany.
My favorite chocolate is:
Whatever I'm in the mood for.
Hello there. My name is Hans, and in my spare time, I write reviews for and articles for The Nibble. I also run my own website catered to chocolate, called CocoaContent, although I update my blog much more frequently.

Drop me a line if you want to chit chat, share deep metaphysical contemplations, or...oh yeah, if you just want to talk about chocolate.

HANS: I must confess that I'm an enemy of milk chocolate, and believe
that white chocolate is a fraud, since it doesn't have any cacao in it,
except for cocoa butter. But if you're addicted to it, that's your problem.

oh go and buy it next time! I am not apprenticing to become a chocolatier, though a flavor I just created, fleur de sel, is coming out in a week! At Gnosis I do a variety of things. Computer and kitchen :)

oh, that ought to be fixed quickly! I love those reviews..Jembrana sounds intriguing. I still haven't tried Taza. Definitely that (Cluizel) has to be the top Sao Tome!

That would be great! I subscribed to The Nibble a couple of months ago, it's scrumptious to read ;)

Hello! Yes, Gnosis is only about a year old. If you want to try it, here are the retailers
I'm an avid reader of your reviews!

HANS: You make a good point. If you don't eat much, it
won't hurt you. But just an ounce or two of pure dark, it will be a plus for your heart and blood vessels.

Hello, fancy meeting you here. Nice webiste but I'm mainly an observer.

HANS: The reason I knocked milk chocolate and white
chocolate is that they aren't healthy for you, like dark is.
Milk chocolate is laden with butterfat as well as sugar.
White chocolate has no cacao in it, just cocoa butter. And
some white chocolate today doesn't even contain cocoa
butter, the good fat.
I've developed a taste for dark chocolate, and now use
70 percent or more cacao to nibble on, or for cooking.

Hans-Peter: I'm pleased to be added to your friends list.
If we ever get together, though, I'll have to question you
about your apparent acceptance of milk chocolate and
even white chocolate (which has no chocolate in it).

I'm in Eugene, and my e-mail address is below:
