Hey there, I found my Felchlin bar at Food Emporium on 3rd at 68th Street. They're the only place I know of that carries them, besides Clay, of course.

I am new to all of this, so I'm not sure how this works, but I just read your profile and I swear it was me. I also love chocolate and have been collecting books and anything that has to do with chocolate. I also eat M&Ms everyday. I have a small chocolate business in my home. I make truffles and am self taught. Still learning as I go. I also work as a server on off seasons. I need to get a real picture of me, working on that. Do you have posters to sell or ideas for a wall in my kitchen?

Yes Hachez is a German chocolate manufacturer. I reviewed the bar in the picture you commented on. You can go see the review on my new blog.

Be warned this is my first blog.

Hello! To answer your question, Quinoa is a pseudocereal. It's treated like rice or couscous. The closest thing I could compare it to isNestle "Crunch". The website is

Hi there!
The buffet at the Peninsula is offered every fri and sat. It is worth a try if you're ever in the Chicago area.

Hi Chocolfyer

Divine is a perfect word to describe the G collection.
I think Norman Love designed the chocolates for Godiva

You could go to Nashville with us for Labor Day - see World Pastry Team Championship info in the right column. Should be relatively inexpensive.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will definitely check out the NYC location. Can't wait!

You are and I cut from the same (chocolate) block, I swear! I love it all too. I guess my sweet tooth is just out of control! :)

As for the job, I was a reader of Candy Addict for a long time and I applied to the first round of hires way back over two years ago. So basically, luck! :)

Great, I will find all of them that I have and send them your way. I don't know if you have been, but World Market has a FANTASTIC selection of chocolate bars from all over the US. I graduated from Ecole Chocolat and we had a tasting assignment where the winner (of 23 bars of dark chocolates were tasted, ugh!) was a chocolate made in Russia. Divine! I am happy to send you the ones I have from that as well, but there may be staple marks. Do you have a World Market close by?

You should have seen the look in her face, it was like: "how could I ever lived without this marvelous thing", It was so funny, now she is hooked on it just like I am.

Thank you for the kind words. I am a self-taught chocolatier. I took a 3 month program through Ecole Chocolat ( and then read & practiced & read & practiced. I first started working with chocolate a little more than a year ago. I never expected chocolate to capture my passion but it has!

I think that the key to tempering is understanding the structure & behavior of chocolate. Not to mention much patience! I don't temper by hand in my shop anymore (the only step I let machines do for me) but knowing that I can temper by hand gives me great peace of mind.

I love your collection of ads and wrappers. My family makes fun of me for saving every chocolate box & wrapper I've had over the past year... it's good to know that I'm not the only one!

Oakland will be a definite side trip when I am in California this summer. I will go any place for CHOCOLATE ,even if gas prices are high. Thanks for the info.

I just visited your chocolate candy blog--it is great! I too love M & Ms---well I did before I had to cut back---so it is neat to view all the different wrappers. Trader Joe's has got some great chocolate. How was the chocolate fountain? Did you go?
