Possibly the second most important poll ever!

We've established what kinds of chocolate some of us like best, but just how often does everyone eat it? I've got a once-a-day habit myself.

Hello, my name is Karldar and I'm a chocoholic....

Hmm, I guess that's why you don't seem like the grumpy type.

I had a Twix at about 0445(last break at work). I couldn't help myself! I'm trying to cut back, tho. Honest!

I chose once or twice a month. I long for chocolate everyday with a strange longing that can't be properly described as obsession.....but I only break down a few times a month.

I was so blinded by the thought of yummy, yummy, chocolate that I actually chose once every few months. *sigh* Should be at least once a month.

I love chocolate. For St. Val's day, my wife gave me a Sharfenberger 68% dark chocolate bar from Peets. Oh. My. God. Is it intense!

Hmm
actually
i should probably change it .
cause I have trail mix usually which usually includes chocolate chips.
And my protein bars usually have chocolate in them
and i have a snickers bar twice a month
i dunno know if trail mix or protein bars counts though. so if it doesnt then its once or twice a month usually. chocolate == expensive

I thought I heard/read somewhere that it affects the female brain in different ways than the male. I mean, it makes me happy, but I might be a little desensitized to its effects since I eat it every day. Wonder why dark would give you migraines. My wife gets them sometimes(not from chocolate) and it's pretty weird how they come and go.

To be the most important poll ever, it would have to be about peanutbutter, not chocolate.

Well...I'm at least once a day. But some days it's in the form of a luna bar or some other "healthy" protein bar. My husband bought me a box of Lindor Truffles for Valentines Day...oh mercy. White chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. It's ALL good!!

I love chocolate...can't really say I'm a chocoholic bacause if I HAD to give it up all together I think I could. But I would so not be a happy person!

wait...isn't that the sure sign of a "holic" that they think they have control over their habit??

P.S. I have to agree that peanut butter is (for me at least) a "food of the Gods"

KT, I wholeheartedly agree, but there's just not as many varieties of PB as chocolate. I'm just sayin'....

See, that's why I mix them both together. Dark chocolate peanut butter...it's a beautiful thing.*sheds tear* Plus, I just had a bowl of it!
