I've been a chocoholic my whole life. I've never really had much of sweet tooth other than that, but the chocoholism was bad enough. Chocolate was my comfort food, especially nutella stuff or ferrero rocher. A couple days ago, I'd had a really lame day and made a concoction with nutella, chocolate chips, pecans, and coconut oil all melted together (maybe 1 oz total of stuff). As I was stirring it on my way to the table, I thought "This smells... off. I'll have a bite to see which chocolate has gone bad." I tasted it and it tasted like it was the nutella that was wrong. It just tasted... wrong. I trot back to the pantry to check the jar itself and take a small taste. The nutella wasn't off, it was now disgusting. The modified oil they use was the main texture and (lack of ) flavor, not the chocolate goodness. It had always been that way and I'd never tasted that. I get rid of the original concoction and use just coconut oil, dagoba dark chocolate, and pecans. My first thought after eating a bite? "It's good, it'd be better if it was just a berry coating." 2 months in and I've lost my chocoholism. I never dreamed that's be possible.
No announcement yet.
