At long last I have to admit it No I'm not a Raving Tree Hugging Lonnie, a Greenie or anything similar.

However I do have to admit that we have to look after this planet and do our up most to protect it and stop Pollution as much as possible.

I have come to this conclusion not because I'm overly concerned about Carbon Pollution or anything similar but I truly believe that this is important because

EARTH is the only planet that we know of that has Chocolate.

Now can anyone disagree with the need to protect the planet as much as possible to ensure our ongoing supply of Chocolate?

the bittersweet variety. I like the deep, rich flavor with the bitter overtones. However, you must get good quality that has been processed and stored properly, or it will be chalky. A little of the bitter good stuff will go a long way.

Was in Vienna and Salzburg.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacher_torte
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozartkugel

Had both of these from the original suppliers. Had the knockoff Mozartkugel, took some home for the family. Not even close.

Lots of good chocolate there, and almost always the dark, not the milk. Milk chocolate is for kids there.

I'd always preferred darker chocolate, but really started actively pursuing it while in Germany for the USAF. Haven't had the original Sacher Torte, but have had this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwarzwalder_Kirschtorte. Absolutely sinful.

I love that the Europeans don't believe a dessert has to be almost sickly sweet.

I've had it a lot as a kid

by JamesRL In reply to Got addicted while I was ...

Though only rarely had it from scratch.

I had the Sacher Torte in the Hotel Sacher in Salzburg. I could have had it in Hotel Sacher in Vienna, but was too busy. It was an old fashioned dinning room, very nice. It is rich in chocolate but not overly sweet.

I had to wait in line to get the Mozart chocolates at the Furst cafe, the place that originated them, but it was well worth it. Kraft owns the company that makes the popular brand sold at the airport.

I also got addicted to Viennese coffee in the morning...very dark and strong, but not as bitter as.....Starbucks.

Blech. Folger's is the only thing worse I've ever had.

You'd think I'd like them

Seeing that I like darker coffees like French Roast and Viennese coffees as well as esspresso.

But I find Starbucks is just overroasted cheap beans, bitter instead of a deep flavour.

I still don't get Starbucks either

by Tink! In reply to I don't get that Starbuck ...

Why people pay so much for coffee from Starbucks when often the local convenience store has coffee that tastes better and is way cheaper.
