"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

chocolate love

Why is American chocolate so sub par to European chocolate?

If you've never had the pleasure of tasting authentic European chocolate, you are missing out on life. American chocolate just doesn't do it; it's really not that good at all. One of my roommates recently returned from a jaunt around Europe, and upon her return, she came bearing heaps of chocolate of all varieties. Dark chocolate from Switzerland; apple-flavored chocolate from Finland {sounds odd, but was delicious!} She brought so much back, and is sharing it generously; me being a dark chocolate lover, well, I'm in heaven.

All I could think while eating my chocolate was "Yes, European chocolate for the win. End of."

You know I'm a Swiss chocolate snob. When you live there, you get that way. Even the cheap stuff there beats the most expensive stuff here hands down.
