Chocolate is my favorite treat.

It is my favorite snack

If there's anything in my diet

it's chocolate that I lack.


It's not that I go overboard

or that I cannot quit!

I'm of an almost healthy weight

I just simply lose my wits!


Chocolate is so creamy. Delectable.

You must keep it from my sight.

I can't stop at one or two squares

It takes everything--all my might.


One square of dark chocolate a day

is healthy, but I favor two,

I just wanna be sure I'm reaping

all the benefits--it's true!

                Ahhhhhhh CHRIS ~ CHOCOLATE now you are rhyming on a very important subject. I love the flavour and effects of Chocolate ! Cakes ~ Puddings ~ Easter Eggs and Chocolate Bars ~ White ~ Milk but especially Dark. It does contain antioxidants and helps the heart. However ladies in their prime (35 ~ 55) should be aware it contains two APHRODISIACS ~ Phenylethylamine and Tryptophan and a STIMULANT ~ Theobromine. I never let my Partners eat chocolate in BED ! One of my Catering Students did her thesis on Chocolate and we had to provide her with a Chaperone ! Pleased you enjoy choc ~ awesome poem ~ but only one bar per day ~ OK.
