I am yet to sign up for the Chocoholics Anonymous, I can still look away if I try hard, but there are days when I can't. The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Every city that I visit, I look for the chocolate confectionery that would stay imprinted in my heart as the sweetest memory of the city - pun was well poorly placed but well-intended!
After thinking long and hard, I came up with two of my all-time favourites - the chocolate and mandarin pomme frites of Amsterdam and profiteroles with cake and otherwise in Turkey. Now this isn't to say that the chocolate crepes with bananas that are available in every lane of Paris does not cut it or that Raymond Blanc's divine creations are not to die for, but remember this is My Life 365 and it is a post-let.
Hmmm...and before I sign off, I can't resist reproducing these quotes that make me chuckle whenever I see them
"Never mind about 1066 William the Conqueror, 1087 William the Second. Such things are not going to affect one's life..but 1932 the Mars Bar, 1936 Maltesers and 1937 the Kit Kat - these dates are milestones in history and should be seared in the memory of every child in the country" - Roald Dahl came up with that heart-felt declaration!!
"Forget love...I'd rather fall in chocolate" ~ some clever soul who didn't want their name mentioned alongside said this, perhaps they did fall in love and chocolate - now that's a double bonanza!! :)
Signing off in a chocoholic haze after devouring a chocolate baklava ( those are great too, but not as great as the two finalists who got honorary mentions on Life 365)
