I hear they're even pushing their "candy" to kids in schools.

Does America try to control the supply of beer or of doughnuts?

Damn Cannucks. If they didn't grow such nice weed.

I'm not addicted. I can stop anytime I want.

I'll make sure not to preview this post, Fark, thanks for the italicized "Don't", it really helps me since I sometimes misunderstand just regular "Don't".

And with their control of the weed supply, they've got both sides of the market covered.

My problem with chocolate is always that it's not so much bad for my teeth or my gut, but my face. For some reason it always gives me massive outbreaks of zits.

Stop eating those machine-distributed symmetrical turds people. If you like chocolate get the real stuff, preferably 70% dark fair trade.

dhudd Chocolate is not a drug, it's a health food.

It's one of the 4 food groups: Bacon, Chocolate, Alcohol, and...?

During the last bacon thread someone mentioned chocolate covered bacon. For the record, it is yummy. That night I ordered chocolate chip pancakes with bacon, and dipped some bacon in the oozing melty chocolate for giggles. Good stuff. If Canada ever sold this, then they would own this country.

I support Ganong Bros. and Laura Secord. Down with the big cartel! Stick it to the man!

You do make a point, a valid one. However, do you buy your fair trade chocolate from a supermarket or someplace like Walmart? Maybe you dodge a sweatshop (with chocolate, ew!) from one aspect, but it's not completely pristine by the time it gets to you. Buying from a smaller exclusive place lets the larger cheaper places off the hook. Why not try to get the larger places to change their policies?

/frequents a small coffee shop that offers fair-trade organic coffees, "buy local" pro-environmental crap and an anti-Starbucks mentality, yet the owner drives a huge yellow Hummer.
