I’m no chocolate snob. Chocolate is chocolate, to paraphrase Gertrude Stein, and is tasty in all its forms. You don’t have to be a chocolate snob to know that.
Sure… BUT I do have to say that some of my favorite chocolates are from Switzerland.
I remember the day I was first introduced to Swiss chocolates; it was my second year at UH Hilo, on a second date with a handsome international student from Switzerland. Towards the end of the evening he reached into a bag and pulled out a bar of Ragusa chocolate. He opened the packaging, unwrapped the foil and broke off a piece for me to try. I had never tasted such delicious chocolate before in my life. It was heavenly!
From that point on, my sweet tooth (and my hips) would never be the same. In fact, that whole date changed my life; I ended up marrying the guy who swept me off my feet with Swiss chocolate.
