Most memorable chocolate experience:
As a teen, we were dining with our folks at the Four Seasons restaurant in Manhattan. I ordered a chocolate mousse-type dessert - can't remember what it was called - but I'll tell you what, I haven't tasted anything as sensational as that, since. It has shaped the way I experience chocolate to this day - prior to that , it was all about Easter bunnies and Hershey's Kisses. But since then, nothing but fine chocolate will do - although I occassionally indulge in a Snickers or an Andes wafer.
My favorite chocolate is:
Still searching the planet for the world's best...

Holly and Paul, I attended Expo '67 in Montreal when I was 13, but I still remember it. I still have my memorabilia from it.

What is the status of your CLTC? I think it's a great idea.

I like the idea of 'working' vacations, where we can be active participants in the process. I wouldn't mind planting cocoa plants, harvesting cocoa beans or learning how to dry them. I'll take my wages in cocoa beans!

I have a friend at work who will be 'retiring' to run a B&B in Costa Rica at the end of this month. Having a 'working plantation' where guests can actually learn the process of producing such lovely products via a 'hands-on' method sounds like a 'win-win' situation. Perhaps such a B&B can be developed in many countries to promote sharing and assisting the cocoa industry.

Hi. I am wondering about the trip to Belize. Any spaces left? If so how much is the cost, details, etc.

Sue, this may date me a bit - but as a kid I went to Expo 67.
We should have the Nashville info out by the end of the week or sooner.

Please please add photos of the Belize and Europe trips when you all return, would really love to see them!
I have decided this year I will spend my reduced budget on the NYC Choc show (and a Broadway show) and next year me n my mom are doing a Quebec choc tour...its closer and more affordable than Europe but willl still have the french and european feel i hope...I found a choc Festival and Museum in Bromont, QC- should be fun!

Hi guys and welcome to The Chocolate Life. It's your participation that will help make this a success. I fully expect you to promote The Chocolate Lovers Travel Club because I think everyone here will be very interested in it.

You know, I think I have but dismissed it. I'd have to say that the Swiss ones were not as sweet as what I buy in the grocery stores here. Perhaps that is why the local Lindt products are not as high on my list. The extra sweetness is just a bit too much for me.
