Feb 15:  Where is the best place to get chocolate today?

 

Not sure if it's just my area or a British thing in general, but I've never seen anywhere that does cheap post-Valentines chocolate.

Looks like TS is under the weather again, so here goes for today.

 

Tea: hot or cold?

 

Definately hot.

Mine starts off scalding, then hot, then warm, then tepid, then finally cold (room temperature).

 

I only start drinking it between hot and warm (I burn easy), and finish it when it's already cooled down more than I would like.

Either?  Really depends on my mood.  And the weather.  It's like they are two entirely different beverages.

Both.

 

Hot in the morning or when it's cold outside.

 

Iced in the afternoon or when it's hot outside.

Here in frozen Ottawa, there is a family-owned German chocolatier that has been around for decades.  They make amazing chocolate and cakes, all in house.  Simply amazing.  Otherwise, the stuff you get from Purdy's (chain of fancy chocolate) is pretty darn good too.  Their "Turtles" equivalent are mouth-wateringly delicious!

 

Don't forget their hedgehogs!  They're pricy, but ohhhhh my they're good.  I've switched to their chocolate bars though, because an occasional purchase of those is a lot lighter on the wallet than even a small box of hedgehogs are.

 

They're chocolate put into molds that look like hedgehogs, no actual hedgehogs involved in the process.

o_O  I drink my tea pretty much one way - rather piping hot, if I had to guess it would be about a degree Celsius lower than where I'd burn my tongue ^_^  ...When able, I brew my tea in my tea press, and I have a tea cozy that goes on over that (with wolves on it!) to keep it piping hot the entire time...  When I just want to have a mug though, I have an infuser I use.

 

Don't get me wrong, iced tea (tea that's been chilled and iced) is good, just not really my thing, but I'm also not really into black teas - green and white (but especially green/white blends) are more my thing.

When I'm hot, I want it cold. When I'm cold, I want it hot. In all cases I prefer it with lemon and honey, though the honey is tricky to dissolve when it is cold.

Thanks @Corsair.  Between my Wife's flu and my son's welding, the morning got away on me.  I'm not good at being here in the weekends.

 

Cold, sweet, with lemon

 

Or 

 

Hot Earl Grey with 3 lumps sugar o

 

Or 

 

Hot Mint

Yes.

 

Clarification:

 

Black tea: hot and slightly sweet or cold and bitter. Both are ideal.

Green tea: hot and bitter or cold and slightly sweet. Both are ideal. REAL green tea, not that gross powder.

Oolong tea: I've only ever had it hot?

Mint tea: Hot, cold, blended, don't care, is all good.

Herbals: Depends...

 

NOT chamomile. It gives me a wicked (and wickedly painful) case of the hiccups.

Hot tea every morning and afternoon.  Cold tea during the summer with meals.  

 

Valentine's candy started going onto shelves around christmas, and Easter soon after that.

I should clarify.  In the summer we drink iced tea, which is not at all the same as cold tea.   Cold tea is unpleasant.  Iced tea is refreshing.

My local grocery store was all but picked clean at 1730 hrs. Seriously, 16 feet of empty shelf space, floor to top shelf. 

 

That was my experience at HEB yesterday. Cap'n John & I stopped by on our way back from Llano. there were three bags of truffles on the shelves at one (1300).

I did take two of the Lindor truffle bags & a bag of KitKats that was $2 off...the truffles were full price though...it's all The Donald's fault.

 

What has Donald Duck got to do with Lindor Truffles? :upside:

 

I did get a bag of Ghirardarelli chocolate squares at half the original price. (There was about 3 foot of remnant chocolates left.)
