Emergency




In case of CHOCOLATE Emergency, break glass! Pencil sketch, colored in Photoshop.

I'm a certified chocolate FIEND! hehehe. Here's my top 10 (ok, 12) favorite all-time chocolate experiences:

12. Starbucks Chantico. Billed as a chocolate dessert, it was so rich, you could go into chocolate shock if you drank 4 or 5. Find out why they pulled it from their menu here.

11. Trader Joe’s Chocolate Truffle Brownie Mix. Read a review of this DECADENT product.

10. Chocolate covered fresh strawberries. Isn't this health food? =)

9. Although this is a non-food item, Ben and Jerry's sells the cutest Chocolate Fudge Brownie lip balm.

8. Try this: Buy a box of chocolate covered oreos (yes, chocolate-covered), store in the freezer, and in a few hours, enjoy a fabulous treat!

7. The Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity3 in New York City. Maybe it tasted so good because we had to wait 3 hours to get seated during the holiday season?

6. Amalfi, Italy - a little shop called Sapori d' Amalfi sells the most delicious lemon/white chocolate candy bars.

5. Fields, Oregon is a tiny town consisting of a few buildings, but they serve the most incredible, world-famous chocolate milkshakes!

4. See’s Candy chocolates and confections.

3. Umm… I haven’t experienced this YET, but on my next trip to Switzerland, I’m going to take the Cheese and Chocolate Train.

2. The Toblerone bar.

1. Can I just say, I LOVE Joseph Schmidt Chocolates! Works of art, and the most delicious chocolates ever.

If you have any of your own favorites, feel free to tell me about them!

Nice illo! Clever! Loved the Starbucks chocolate - wondered why it disappeared. Bummer. We buy a big box of See's dark chocolates every once in a while (several at Christmas) just to be decadent.

Ha great minds think alike =)

but If you live near a costco, then you need to buy the box of chocolate chip brownie mix. It feels like pure chocolate being pumped into your veins. =)

I'm sure many folks can relate! The Oreos sound devine! Great job!

Your illustration has created some tasty conversation here.

It's too bad about the Chantico, I would have liked to see it stick around. When will people learn a chocolate drink can't be expected to please everybody? : ) Besides a non-fat decaf Chantico would just be wrong.

I love the Hersey's Special Dark chocolate, especially with a hot cup of coffee.
