My one true treat love: chocolate. Arguably the best sweet around.
I do not only adore this confection because of its good looks and taste. Rather, some of my favorite memories are sitting on the ground in my living room after a fun but exhausting night of trick-or-treating. I would pour out my candy on the ground and sort them into neatly stacked piles, picking out the iconic American chocolate bars each person in my family loves.
I would then deliver the candy to each person in my family like a little present. Mom likes Mounds, Dad likes York Peppermint Patties, my brother DJ likes Snickers, my sister Alexa likes Twix and well, I like any kind of chocolate.
I felt such joy and excitement in my little self, being able to share something that I loved with the people I love. That’s one of the best feelings.
Imagine sitting down and eating a smooth, rich, yummy, flavorful piece of chocolate, then eating a hard, crunchy, sugar-coated piece of candy. I know which one I would rather have.
Chocolate is such a versatile sweet. You can get it in so many varieties and different combinations of flavors: peanut butter, mint and caramel. These are just a few of the many combinations that make this treat one of the best around.
Imagine all your favorite foods without chocolate. What would you do? A s’more without a Hershey bar, strawberries not dipped in chocolate, a cake without chocolate frosting wouldn’t be complete without chocolate.
Imagine all these amazing wonderful foods without the very best sweet on it. It would not be the same. Without chocolate, you would just have a strawberry, a graham cracker with marshmallow and a piece of cake with no flavor.
That’s not the same, nor as good. You need chocolate to make these treats wonderful.
In my opinion, chocolate will always be the best sweet you could possibly get.
