 Me neither. I came to the startling conclusion about 5 years ago that I

 except in odd moods and even then mostly dark chocolate.

I don't like English chocolate which doesn't in fact contain very much
chocolate at all if you study the percentage cocoa solids.

Most English milk chocolate resembles dark wax and tastes like
cooking chocolate, although Galaxy is just about acceptable.

Didn't the EU try and prevent English chocolate being called
chocolate?

 I managed to have a day trip to Geneva on Friday and didn't buy any at
 all.

European chocolate is a lot nicer.

BTW a very simple way of making drinking chocolate is to to combine
equal qualities of cocoa powder and honey before adding hot water and
milk.

I have bought US Hersey (sp?) bars in the UK and thought they were
better than the average bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk.

YMMV

Hersey make their products from the ground up bones of dead rats stuck
in the wheels of NY subway trains.
