Chocolate: You either love it or hate it. There are certainly times when it is more desired or craved by those who love it. And those who hate it hate all forms of it. I should know…I lived with a chocolate hater.

It always amazed me when Trump would reject M&M’s, quite possibly the most awesome candy in the universe (especially if straight from the fridge). But then again, she’s sort of a picky eater. Loves corn on the cob, but not corn off the cob; you know, weird stuff like that. I still am baffled by the fact that she would hurriedly bite off the ends of all of her McDonald’s French fries (so no one would take them), yet refuse any type of candy or confection from the cocoa family.

But I guess that’s how it is. We all have our vices. I wouldn’t say that chocolate is a “vice” of mine, but I do enjoy it. All types of it, too. I am definitely not a chocolate snob, although I am a bit snobbish about a few certain chocolate items. But one day this week, you wouldn’t have known it. We all have days when we can’t stop putting food in our mouths for no good reason. This day, I wanted anything chocolate. I think I ate more chocolate (and just junk food in general) in that one day than I have in the last six months combined. I don’t know why. There really was no good reason, except that I wanted to. Of course, since that day this week I have felt the need to eat a lot of vegetables to make up for my indiscretions, but I’ll eventually get over that feeling.

But I must say that one of the most glorious chocolate things I have ever seen in my life was not too long ago. We attended a wedding, and walked into the reception to find not one, not two, but three chocolate fountains. Not only were there the usual strawberries and marshmallows to dip in the chocolate, but three entire tables filled with a myriad of chocolate-dipping goodies. Husband loved it, and I was in heaven. It is well known among my friends and family that I am a punch connoisseur at wedding receptions. But at that point, who cares about the punch (which was exceptional, by the way)? Give me more chocolate-covered stuff! Pin It

    Just because I don't like chocolate people feel that inevitable desire to pick on me. You want to hear something wierd. I dont like chocolate candy bars or chocolate covered goodies bt I just happen to love chocolate milk. I do tend to "water" it down with some white milk though to keep it from being ot chocolaty. Here's something that's really wierd. I dont like either chocolate by its self of white milk by its self but together. YEEESSSS. How weird is that. I don't remember the french fry thing but its sounds like me!!!

  2. I also do not like milk, but dump some chocolate in it and I am all over it!

    Ok, I like this trend of picking on Trump's eating oddities, so here's another one.
    Young Trump LOVED to get a spoon and dig in to the tub of Country Crock "butter". Can we say GROSS!!! Then later on she decided that spoonfulls of butter tasted better sprinkled with SUGAR!
    I also remember a phase when Trump would suck on M&M's until the candy shell was gone and then spit them out!
    I myself love all things chocolate. And it doesn't matter if it's white, milk or dark. I love them all.

  4. First of all, I'm so jealous about the chocolate fountain experience! How cool!

    Secondly, Trump's eating habits are just plain WEIRD! There's not enough space in this comment to go into all the weirdness.... :)
