“Your hand and your mouth agreed many years ago that, as far as chocolate is concerned, there is no need to involve your brain.”

Today I’m actually going out to do a couple of errands. It has been a while, but Henry needs treats as do the cats. I could do with a treat myself. I’m thinking chocolate, the most uplifting of treats.

When I was a kid, chocolate bars were a nickel. I had favorites. A Sky Bar is one of them, probably my all time favorite. I loved the four different tastes. Caramel was the best part. I remember buying a bar of Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate which I probably wouldn’t eat now, not near sweet enough. For a while I bought Zero bars. They had white chocolate fudge for a topping. Their insides included caramel and nougat. I bought a Chunky every now and then, but I decided it was too small to pay a nickel. Marathon Bars were strange. They were like a braid of caramel covered in chocolate. I figure you’ve seen the trend. I was and am a caramel fan. A Milkshake bar was akin to a Milky Way. Saturday matinees meant long lasting candy like Sugar Daddies. JuJu Beads were once sold at the movie concession stand, but they were removed because they were more for throwing than eating.

I’m not a fan of miniature bars. They are a travesty. My father used to like them so my mother usually bought a package for him when she shopped. He hid them under the couch, but we all knew. My favorite miniature is the Krackel Bar, a twin to Nestle’s Crunch. I’d pick those out of the dish. The Milky Ways were next to disappear. In a while, only regular Hershey Bars were left in the candy dish. I find them boring. To me, their only purpose in life is in s’mores.

When I was in Ghana, we sometimes treated ourselves and bought Cadbury chocolate bars as nighttime treats. The DPW had a small store sort of around the corner from the school. We’d each buy a chocolate bar and a cold coke, both major treats. My favorite bar was the Fruit and Nut Bar.

Today I have to buy chocolate. I’m salivating just a bit for a bar or two. I deserve a treat.
