One of my favorites

So this weekend I had yet another argument with someone about chocolate. It seems that I am the only person that has her head on straight and knows that chocolate is not candy. Chocolate is chocolate people. You don't say, "Hey, anybody want some hot candy on this snowy day?" NO. Because it is not candy. And oh yeah, they're called 'candy' bars. Those people are wrong. They are chocolate, not candy. Examples of real, delicious candy: starburst, sour water melons, flavored tootsie rolls, swedish fish, hot tamales, etc. Examples of chocolate: hershey's kisses, m&ms, snickers, kit kat, reese's pieces, 3 musketeers, etc. Notice there is no chocolate in the candy section, and no candy in the chocolate section. Therefore when I gave up candy for lent last year and had a twix bar in the middle of april, I was still well within the boundaries of my lenting (thats right, I just made lent into a verb). I will never believe that chocolate is candy no matter what wikipedia or anyone else says. Although I might believe it if Jason Heyward said it to me personally. We shall see.



  1. I think you know where I stand on this.

  2. Interesting... How then, do you feel about such things as caramel and nougat? Also, could M&Ms not also be considered candy because of their candy-like coating, making them a candy/chocolate hybrid?! Food for thought.
