And speaking of things that just about everyone LIKES... did you know today is World Chocolate Day?  Whether you like milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even white chocolate - they're all celebrated today.  No matter if you enjoy your chocolate in a beverage, in candy bar form, or melted over something else, today is your day to rejoice and enjoy.  Of course, no event can go unrecognized without input from our Community Family, so please login and comment  with your favorite use of chocolate!

Since I don't eat sugar my best way to eat chocolate is in a yummy smoothie with avocado, peanut butter, and sweet potato. More like pudding really. If I'm luck I happen upon Lily's vegan stevia chocolate bars! Hard to find but so worth it when I do.

I got a fancy but also (very importantly) easy to clean hot chocolate maker for Christmas a couple of years ago and it is the greatest gadget to exist. Even better than a Breville!!! In goes the milk. in goes the chocolate shavings, press the button and TA-DA - velvety frothy perfect hot chocolate every time. Recently I got some strawberry white chocolate and the hot chocolate with that is FANTASTIC.
