American chocolate is crap. English chocolate is already better, even without the booze.

Who cares about alcohol, chocolate and peanut butter or go home.

With a nice healthy layer of sand keeping it all together.

Um, I can mix chocolate and alcohol in my mouth just fine without the fumed silica.

half the fat, twice the price.

Whatever it takes to make life tolerable on that cold, wet North Atlantic rock. I've long held that the British Empire was not founded on Enlightment Principles of Exploration or even greed, but the simple desire to GET THE fark OFF THIS COLD, WET NORTH ATLANTIC ROCK. And for fark's sake, get something decent to eat. It's all boiled beef and cabbage. Turnips. Leeks. It's goddamn goat-food. No, go out there, go to the equitorial latitudes, that's where the food's interesting. Conquer them. Make them part of our Empire, THEN we can have curry and noodles and dum sum and samosas and, oh, god it will be wonderful! We'd go live in those warmer places but, dear god, they're all full of stinking wogs so we'll be content here on our cold, wet rock so long as we have something interesting to eat. Yes, that'll make it tolerable indeed.

If you're going to steal the rich creamery cocoa butter out of my chocolate and replace it with something that doesn't belong there, it might as well be vodak instead of the vegetable oil bullshiat Big Chocolate has been using.

The single best taste combination is a good single malt with a curly whirly. It can't be beaten I tell yah.

What's a Curly Wurly?

If it's anything like a Mello Yello, then I agree with you.

Alcohol has to be better than that PGPR shiat made from castor beans. American chocolate has been ruined since the introduction of that crap. Smores have to be really expensive to be good anymore. :(

I live in the American Gardens Building on W. 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my stomach is a little puffy I'll eat a chocolate waffle while watching Oprah. I can eat 1000 now. After I eat the snack I make myself a light breakfast of biscuits and gravy, followed by bacon. In the shower I drink hot chocolate with two marshallows, then almonds covered with honey, and a bagel. Then I apply an herb-mint and chocolate chip milkshake I prepared 10 minutes in advance while I prepare the rest of my breakfast. I always use sugar cane on my breakfast, because beat sugar makes you look older. Then an omelet, then fried bacon followed by a bowl of cereal.

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my fat rolls, and you can shake my hand and feel sweaty flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there.

"How do we keep the rain off our heads?" Oldest Buildings in the World. Scottish houses being built around then.

You just have to know where to look, and avoid Hershey's or Nestle. We do get foreign brands like Cadbury, Lindt, Ritter Sport, etc. but there are domestic brands scattered throughout the country that are definitely worthwhile to us chocoholics, and often available in grocery stores. It's not too hard to find a place that sells "gourmet" chocolates (some being ridiculously overpriced), and in recent years I've heard of a number of small shops producing "artisan" chocolate (which can be expensive, but often worth it).

It's got chewy caramel on the inside. The only Mello Yello I can find on Google is a soft drink, so probably not.
