(And no, am not being a Europhile - chocolate in Bariloche, Patagonia, was beyond awesome. Hershey just does not merit the name chocolate)

Hershey tastes and acts like wax. Lots of good, small chocolatiers around now though.

I should hope so, Dom. The one I tried in Patagonia is small, local stuff, but boy, was it tasty. And I'm not a chocolate person. That stringy thing? Surprisingly awesome!

And then there were the alfajors...

Haha, well it's your screen Tongue

Seriously, was a really awesome place. And they had great passion fruit smoothies/juice (and I LOVE passion fruit which it is impossible to find in Bulgaria). And that's before we get started on the nice, spicy spices (I brought some home. I also brought home same alfajores *and* some local, artisanal beer. My dad and my sister, the beer drinkers in the family, said is was very good)

So far here, in Brazil, am quite enjoying the funnily called Romeo and Juliet (kinda, sorta guava jelly and cheese).

I buy my own. Kind of strange but I hate a pen that doesn't write smoothly and I use mechanical pencils. I have my special ruler, post-its, and other odds and ends. Not using some generic crap or stuff that was used by someone else before me.

I buy my own gel roller 0.7mm pens, because fuck the cheap knock-off BIC wannabes work buys.

I'd have to think twice before consuming something called Romeo and Juliet. After all they both died. And her death was from poison.

I'm just sayin.

De gustibus non est disputandum.

"American Light Lager" is a legitimate beer style, and AB and Coors produce good, consistent examples of same.

And anything with actual flavor is going to be severely hampered by being chilled to 35ºF Big Grin
