Yes, but only because there was no option for "did" instead of "would".

No option "I would kill for it"? Too bad...

If they found chocolate on that shock absorber, you would be the prime suspect?

That said, there are some good British choclatiers around (whose wares turn up in a box I get on a monthly basis).

One of my favorite jobs was working for candy company in California.....See's Candy.

Very high quality chocolates. Also expensive. Today, its going for almost $15 lb. When i worked there, it was at $6.75 (1989)

We all wore white dresses with black bows. We had company reps that would come at un-announced times. All back stock of candy had 'pull' dates, and if you were caught with any past that date, it was a most serious mark against you. They prided themselves on selling only the freshest, most tasty candy.

Its also where I met my husband. "Free candy sample, sir?" (I HAD to, it was store policy!!!)

Chocolate nauseates me and in the last couple of years has started to trigger my migraines.

So, yes, I love it. Sometimes you have to suffer for your love.

Cheers,
Marc

See's is the brand that an organization to which I belong uses for fundraisers. The funny part being, of course, that the organization is my local chapter of the National Federation of the Blind!

Currently, only 2 people separating those who eat it on special occasions and those who would sell their bodies for it.
