Fall is my favorite season

Fall brings cooler weather, changing leaves, and the greatest holidays! Including Halloween, Thanksgiving, and my bday =)

And speaking of Halloween makes me think of my favorite candy - chocolate!

Which brings me to the delicious, delectable, delightful, chocolate covered bloghop, What's Your Chocolate?  Hosted by M. PaxLaura EnoBrinda Berry, and Ciara KnightThe only unbelievable story I have to share about chocolate is that my oldest son doesn't like it! In recent years, he has come around and now likes a few chocolaty items, but it's not something he craves. And don't ask me where it came from, it sure wasn't me! I need my chocolate.

I also compiled a few chocolaty lists...

Forms of chocolate I love:
  • brownies (my #1 weakness)
  • donuts
  • cookies
  • cake
  • on strawberries
  • fondue
  • fudge
  • truffles
  • pudding
  • hot cocoa
Chocolate bars I love:
  • Mounds
  • Heath
  • M n Ms - ever been to a store? be careful! it's tempting to get too much! all those colors add up!
  • Three Musketeers
  • Hershey
  • Special dark
  • Kit Kat
  • Crunch
  • Krackle
  • Kisses
  • Reeces
  • Whoppers
  • Raisinettes
  • Butterfinger
  • boxed chocolates - creme filled
And yet, there are forms of chocolate I do not care for...
  • chocolate flavored pop or coffee
  • ice cream, unless it's mixed with cookies or caramel, mmm
  • no nuts in my chocolate, please!
  • no sprinkles
  • chocolate covered cherries
  • off brand chocolate bunnies, etc - not the same!
  • white chocolate is okay but best on pretzels
What's your favorite or least favorite chocolate?

Another great thing about Fall and Halloween is blogfests - like this one I found:

Spooktoberfest! is brought to you by Jackie and Dani. Isn't that a cute, spooky button! Looking forward to some good ghost stories! And sweet prizes of course.

And don't forget, next Monday is Alex's Genre Party blogfest. There's so many to choose from!

What else is coming up?


Kyra Lennon said...

Mmm, chocolate! All this talk of it is really making me crave it!

michelle said...

I can identify with your son. I'm not really a choccie fan. II can go without chocolate for weeks at a time... strange, but true!

M.J. Fifield said...

I don't tend to like chocolate protein shakes. But I adore chocolate cake and brownies and fudge and cookies and ice cream and pretty much all over forms...

Fall is my favorite time of year too.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

No nuts in the chocolate, and no raisins either!
Thanks for mentioning my blogfest. One more week!

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I think chocolate together with peanut butter is one of man's best inventions - ever! :)

choc and PB! yum

Stina Lindenblatt said...

You know, you could have at least had a warning on this post first. Now I have a craving for chocolate for breakfast. :P

My favorite time is late September. The leaves are turning color (therefore they are still on the trees). There is an optimal week when everything looks amazing. Then it all looks dead and snow constantly threatens to visit (and not in the beautiful, wintery way it can have).

Dana said...

WHY did I choose to start my diet today? These posts are making me insanely hungry for chocolate! ;)

Thanks for the blog fest reminders. I've got some signing up to do.

Annalisa Crawford said...

I started to make a list, but it was getting far too long. I agree about the white chocolate - in my opinion it's not even proper chocolate because there's so little cocoa.

Jackie said...

My youngest son doesn't like chocolate either.
That pic of chocolate goodness looks so yummy!

Thanks so much for mentioning our blogfest!

Trisha said...

I don't like my coffee and choc mixed either. It just seems wrong to me. Hence why I don't have mocha.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Tara .. you've listed quite a few there - you obviously enjoy your chocolate ... chocolate brownies are number one in many households I guess - they must be gooey in the centre ..

Cheers Hilary

M Pax said...

I'm hungry now, Tara, and I just had breakfast.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Gimme Chocolate. Delicious post Tara and I'm just aching for Spooktoberfest to start.

Emily R. King said...

Oh my gosh, yum!

Lynn Proctor said...

yeah i am not about chocolate in my coffee or ice-cream unless it's hot fudge sauce on a vanilla sundae :)

Anonymous said...

Guess who?

Be right back, got to go get a piece of choc.

He didn't get it from any one in our family.( not liking choc. )

Cynthia said...

A lovely list! I could only imagine how giddy I'd be if I were in a room with all this... I love all kinds of chocolate. Right now, I'm thinking of truffles...maybe that picture you have up is influencing me somehow. =)

VikLit said...

Now I'm hungry ;)

I like my chocolate in the form of CAKE

Sherry Ellis said...

I love your list of chocolate foods! I personally love dark chocolate - 70% cocoa or higher. I do not like white chocolate. That's not even chocolate in my book!

Christine Rains said...

Your list. Wow. You and I could have a great chocolate party together. I don't like chocolate with nuts, pretzels, or anything salty either. I'm a sweet lover.

Catherine Stine said...

All manner of chocolate is great! And the Spooktoberfest sounds fun.

I started to make a list, but decided I need side-by-side taste testing to put them all in order. I have some research to do!

Emily Sovich said...

Oh, that chocolate. I might just have to start Halloween a little early!

Spooktoberfest sounds fun! Thanks for the head's up!

LynnRush said...

My hubby's big weakness is brownies, too. The ooey gooey ones!! :)

Kelley Lynn said...

Oh! Chocolate brownies, warm, with vanilla ice cream. Best. Dessert. Ever! :)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

LOL. Your list of not like is much shorter than what you do like.

Brinda said...

I think I've overdosed on raisinettes at some point in the past.

Ciara said...

I don't like chocolate covered cherries, either. Thanks for joining the blog hop. I'm a new follower. ;)

Kimberly Gabriel said...

Ooh I loved your list of chocolatey goodness. Chocolate flavored pop? I don't think I'd be a fan of that either, but I do love chocolate covered cherries. ;)

Tara Tyler said...

sharing chocolate is the best camaraderie! thanks for shring with me!

Tyrean Martinson said...

No nuts?! Well, I guess chocolate tastes good without nuts, I just really like it with nuts.

Spookterberfest sounds fun!

And Happy Birthday early!

Julie said...

I cracked up about the off brand bunnies, it's so true. They are always awful LOL. Also hate nuts with my chocolate, nothing ruins a brownie faster for me.

Fall is my favorite time too, so glad we're almost there! :)

The Capillary said...

Ah!!! Way too much chocolate in this post! Too overwhelmed, must look for chicken burger... :3

Livia said...

What a list...I love chocolate without any filling in it and it has to be milk chocolate.

Laura Eno said...

My daughter has never liked chocolate either! That's okay. I always got her halloween chocolate candy. :) Thanks for joining the blogfest!
