Pat, I had the same experience. I just bought several packages of Ghirardelli Chocolate chips to make my chocolate nuts. I will have to tuck my boycott plans in a compartment of my brain until I eat it all up.

Thanks for the reference, Joan. Wish I would have checked before I got that bar of Vosges Dark Chocolate with Chipotle. Live and learn.

Good to know Joan.  I was happy to see Kroger chocolate powder on the good list.  I've started buying Kroger Ice Cream at Fred Meyers because it tastes good and is very low priced.

I love raw, unsalted, organic nuts and buy about eight varieties. I mix them on a cookie sheet and roast them for two hours at 150 degrees F. I let them cool, put them in quart jars to freeze. They make delicious snacks. 

Another treat is to melt Ghirardelli Chocolate  and mix in a cup of roasted nuts. Put parchment paper on a cookie sheet and make little tidbits about the size of a single bite. Let them cool. I take the nuts and chocolate to Michelle's house, and the kids help me make them. Lots of chocolate faces and fingers when we get done. 

Oh! I just found out that these companies use child labor and other factors, such as the use of slaves. I will no longer use these brands:

I'll have to check with Rosauer's Grocery store to see if they have Free Trade chocolate.

Lucky you, Patricia!  While I'll buy any chocolate, I do try to eat one piece of dark chocolate every day. If I decide to stop eating sugar, I'll still eat dark chocolate because of the anti-oxidant benefit.

Dark chocolate is the ONLY chocolate........hahaha. Belgian or Italian are two favorites that I'll get once or twice a year. I don't have a sweet tooth so seldom eat sugars in anything. My day also begins with fruit, & green or white tea.

Comment by Plinius on January 3, 2015 at 8:32am

Randall, it helps when you start the day with fruit. For chocolate choose dark chocolate with 90 or 100% cacao.

Speaking of blood sugar levels, mine is good. And I'm far from being overweight. However, I'm reading a book titled Year of No Sugar (Eve Schaub), and despite my love of sugar, chocolate, etc., I'm considering going cold turkey. It's so "poisonous" and addictive. Can I do without? Do I want to do without? I may attempt a trial run of a week or so. First, I have to eat up my brownies and honey laced breakfast bars I made last week!

Good news about your blood sugar levels Joan.

Comment by Patricia on January 2, 2015 at 3:39pm

I'm infection prone at the best of times, so during chemo it was the only thing that made sense if I wanted to get out of the house. I also wore a surgical mask in public.
