Hey, Fellow Chocolate Lovers... You have to try Lindt's new line of chocolates. They're offering cocoa (chocolate) from specific
locations around the globe. I just tried their dark chocolates: Chile (65%), Madagascar (75%), and Equador (85%) and they are just fantastic! It's amazing how different cocoa taste depending where it's grown. There's also a company (can't remember the name) that offer a whole product line of chocolate made with cocoa from around the world. They're eco-friendly and their company vision is to see those small-guy cocoa growers profit from thier quality goods. The really good, dark stuff has few ingredients and is only 1-2 grams carbs/square.
Ruth - I heard about
(and just read up on) the "vinegar diet" and while some claim evidence to it's effectiveness, there are no conclusive studies. That "diet" is also particular to cinder vinegar (which I don't use). Personally, I love the taste of white vinegar on (fried) potatoes, especially on them french fries! It always makes me chuckle when I'm in the States and ask for white vinegar. The horrified look on the server's face while he's asking me what on earth I'd want it for,... is always priceless (LOL)
My old work colleagues from the US used to tell me they only use white vinegar for cleaning. Hey, maybe the waiter thought I was about
to pull out a mop and start cleaning or something - still makes me laugh. I learned to bring a bunch of the fast-food vinegar packages with me.
