I don't know about you, but as for me, I do some serious chocolate while touring. Some people have to have their coffee in the morning - I'd rather have hot chocolate. Climbing passes I give myself an Oreo every mile - or 1/2 mile if it is steep. And there's nothing like a chocolate milkshake at a little town ice cream shop to reward yourself after a long day of riding. Plus you usually get a bunch of kids asking you the 101 questions. Of course, candy bars and Kansas summers are not a good mix if you are bike touring. The result is usually a glob of goo in the bottom of your pannier. I have learned that semi-sweet chocolate chips hold up much better if you just need a plain chocolate fix. So, how do you and chocolate get along on your tours?
