    Default Is there anything better?

    I stopped at the local german store (http://www.germandeli.com/) on the way to work, and picked up some chocolate with hazelnuts (the Euros do chocolate better than we could dream of). I am taking a bite, then a sip of coffee. Those two taste just do something for me. The warm, rich coffee (we have good stuff in the client lounge) melting the sweet chocolate- it is almost better than bacon.

    Sweet washed down with coffee seems to be a winning combo. But I don't know if euro chocolate is better. It is different though.

    We have a Starbucks machine. That statement may cause an uproar here, but it is 1000% better than the stuff in the employee lounge

    Yeah, we do have good chocolatiers here, but their everyday chocolate bars are better than ours

    The frying pan is also 1000% better than the fire ... we take your point.

    That bunny stuff is probably cocoa flavored palm oil.
    El Ray makes an excellent milk chocolate. Single origin and 40% cocoa solids.
