Chocoholics At Disney...

Well I've been making some chocolate cookies today for my DS and he says they remind him of a chocolate thingy he had at Disney... confused It's got me thinking but I just can't remember what he's talking about..Anyway, I wouldn't really say I'am a dedicated chocolate person,but I do love dark chocolate..So for all you chocoholics out there..What is your number one favourite chocolate treat that you must have every trip..?...

I'm quite fond of the chocolate mousse that used to be in France - I'm not sure if it's still there since rebranded to Les Halles.

I love chocolate, but not in Florida. The heat plus not drinking enough is bad. Mix in chocolate and this kid is goin' down. Fast. I had some sort of chocolate pudding parfait thing at Pizzafari one time. Bad, bad plan. Usually the only chocolate I eat in the world is the coating on my Mickey Ice Cream bar or the little mouse ears on my mint chocolate chip ice cream cone from Edy's. (Yes, I get the kid's cone because I like the mouse ears.) I am considering a chocolate covered sea salt caramel in Germany, though!

My DH is a tried and tested chocoholic....not the creamy milk chocolate stuff, nooooo, my HeMan wants it DARK, as dark as you can find it. The kind that sucks the spit out of your mouth and makes you run for water (or something stronger). He and his partner in music crime (the other half of the music department) each exchange chocolate and I am beginning to think it's a "guy contest" (go there, yes) to see how dark they can give each other and then watch.

The dr actually prescribed 2 squares of dark choc a day (over 60%) for tinnitus (flavinoids?) to help since this is an occupational hazzard with musicians. I have to keep reminding - two SQUARES, not two BARS!!!!

He mentioned a choc croissant at the French pastry that was wonderful.....

WHAT!?!? Really? My husband suffers from this and our doctor has said absolutely nothing useful at all about it or about how to deal with it. Does it seem to help?

I stick to the Premium bar for chocolate. I don't eat that much because in the hot Florida weather, the absolute last thing I want is to have my chocolate melting in my hands before I eat it. That holds true for any chocolate though!

Well, if you read mine carefully, the result of eating too much dark chocolate requires some "beverage". Or at least, that's the excuse he's sticking with. waiting

I still like the sample flavors at ghiradelli. It gets me to try something new. And buy a bag. I thought the choc croissant at Pop century was better than the French pavilion. My guess they come from the same place but I loved those also.

LOL they were performers in the park that day so they were given a meal and a snack coupon. It's one of the reasons I like the DDP because you can try things without gasping or wondering if you have to sell a child.

As much as I love chocolate I have't tried much while at WDW. I did love the chocolate cream puff at Be Our Guest in February.

Yeah, they were 3 times the price of buying them in the uk but I hadn't had Cadburys chocolate for about a week at this point and I was getting withdrawal symptoms laugh

Just a question, how much where the buttons? I should have went and bought some, I'm sure they would have tasted like Australian Cadbury. I really love Cadbury chocolate, nothing can beat it.

Does any other chocoholic think that the chocolate on the Mickey ice-cream ear ice block taste really terrible. I don't know how they can call it chocolate.

I can't remember what we actually paid as it was a few years ago I imagine it was between $3 and $4 as that would be about 3 times uk price. Totally worth it to taste something so delicious yay

It is NOT my favorite. Even shaped like ears doesn't make me like it.

^I'm glad someone else agrees with me, they seem to be quite sacred to everyone else.

$3 or $4 is a good price for Cadbury, similar to Australia when it's not on special.

Had a dessert at the 'old' Bistro in France. Was three or four layers of chocolate (started dark and layers got lighter) in a ganache shell. Best. Thing. Ever.

Oh, and Kim likes the Mickey premium bars, and the various chocolate cupcakes around the world are favorites, too. Butterfinger cupcake at Starring Rolls is a good one!
