This book combined my three most favorite things books chocolate and sarcasmI like chocolate In the way as Sandra Boynton so elegantly says that I like breathing I probably have than 10 kinds of chocolate in my house currently I believe this was Ms Boynton’s first book It is not necessarily geared towards kids at all although I was about 10 when it was given to me But I was very familiar with her from her greeting cards Even though I hadn’t even opened the book in 15 25 years I could still uote one line from the book Regarding carob it is considered to be a good substitute for chocolate because it is roughly the same color and texture “However the same arguments can as persuasively be made in favor of dirt” Which was precisely my experience in my one unpleasant encounter with carobThe writing is hilarious even the footnotes and dedication the illustrations are even better and she does actually have legitimate research I particularly liked the chapter on Your Body and Chocolate The biorhythm chart was particularly amusing As for salvaging failed desserts I really have used failed brownies as an ice cream topping And a friend swears by the brownie recipe in here I do disagree with her about how inferior chocolate ice cream is she apparently is a fan of vanilla whereas I do not see the point of vanilla This book is a great funny gift book for all ages for everyone except those of jellybean sensibilities Sadly it is out of print Workman should bring this back to life

Plus how to grow chocolate at home a foolproof method for determining if chocolate is in season does the name of the month contain the letter A E or U and a recipe for Hippo Pot de Mousse Fourteen out of ten people like chocolate says the artist This is the only guide for people who like chocolate the way they like to breathe Vanilla people keep out Selection of the Literary Gui. I had this book as a kid in the '80s and literally read it so many times that it fell apart It is such a humorous detailed look at chocolate and at those of us who have a genuine love for all things chocolate I'm a self described chocoholic have been since I was VERY young; my mother once knew I was deathly ill at 18mos old because I refused to eat my chocolate pudding and she was right I had a bad case of pneumonia and had to be hospitalized I do enjoy flavors other than chocolate but I can't say there's any that I love and need in my life than chocolate Reading this book again really took me down memory lane I think I'll go find a piece of chocolate to eat now 😁
