"ChocolateBars" news and stories
Do you find a drawer you can lock and fill it with your bags of treats?
Do you hide it throughout the home so that no one can find your stash and steal it?
Do you put it out for everyone and share, without the slightest murmur of stinginess?
Or do you succumb to the pressure of tons of candy and devour it before you have a chance to store it?
If you're the latter, or anyone else looking for some way to use up your candy without going into a chocolate coma, check out Recipe Goldmine's candy bar recipe list. You might as well let the treats work double duty -- not only depleting your stash, but also flavoring your next baked good.
Question: what if Hershey went from using cocoa butters in their chocolate to using vegetable fats and artificial sweeteners?
That's what might happen. They're asking the Food and Drug Administration to change the standards in which chocolate is made and classified, to "modernize" the making of chocolate. Hershey isn't the only company asking the question, it's everyone.
This is sacrilege! We all know that chocolate, even when its high in fat and calories, has a lot of health benefits too. And if people want to have diet chocolate or a chocolate substitute, there are plenty of products already on the market. Changing the taste of Hershey chocolate would be like changing America, damn it!
