    Oh, I see, you think cacao is just for eating. I gotta share with you my cocoa
    enema recipe.

    Why sorry? Cadbury sucks, I agree.

    It's actually better in the UK and Ireland than it is in the States, tastes creamier.

    Jokes aside, what puts me off is chocolate brands which offload kilos of sugar
    into the mix. It's like diabetes in a bar, take away, like drinking cheap brandy and
    contracting hepatitis from a prostitute in Marseille.

    You don't sound like you're describing a candy experience.

    Ms. Cadbury is creamier. Specially when she's lactating.

    Yeah, Hershey's is like this. Godiva or Lindt is much better. Ghirardelli is okay.

    I thought See's was weird, but they're getting better.

    Yeah, Lindt is pretty good. Their Lindor's cornet milk are one of my weaknesses
    if a quick snacky chocolate is the way to go.

    For the life of me, rest assured that this is not hipsterism but a true initiation rite
    when having lived in Mayan land: the best chocolate I've tried was closer to the
    traditional way, i.e. roasted and peeled cacao beans, chili, honey and cinnamon.
    All brought to a boil. The people who made it for me, in a small village to the
    east of Oxkutzcab, added roasted wheat and also allowed it to chill to drink as
    refreshment.

    Best. Thing. Ever.

    I had a drink like this when I was in Cancun, but I kinda blew it off as some kind of tourist-y thing. The land of the Maya is amazing once you get away from Cancun. I did see Belize and Chichen Itza.

    I agree that most of what is marketed as chocolate is mostly not chocolate.

    Commercially available chocolate bars get interesting for me starting at 72% cacao mass.

    As for cadbury's so-called drinking chocolate -- awful. I drink 100% cacao mixed with raw milk from the farm down the road from me. Sometimes with a shot of Bailey's. No salt or sugar added.

    But I thought 100% cacao (or cocoa) was bitter as hell and requires some sweetening.

    I see you weren't satisfied with your latest anal bleaching.
