My soul mate

I think I have found a kindred spirit in a man named Steve Almond. I am reading his book, Candyfreak, A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America. It is fantastic and I am only on page 16. I thought I would share with you an excerpt that spoke to me deeply. It was as if he was reading my mind:

"Every now and again, I'll run into someone who claims not to like chocolate
or other sweets, and while we live in a country where everyone has the right to
eat what they want, I want to say for the record that I don't trust these
people, that I think something is wrong with them, and that they're probably -
this must be said - total duds in bed."

I love you Steve Almond, and I am thrilled that there is another one out there like me. Obsessed, sugar crazed and jonesing for a Milky Way.

That is priceless!!! I know you think I'm crazy because I'm not a huge chocoholic but I defintely have to have some in my diet! I have got to get my aunts that book.

That's hysterical! I laughed out loud when I read it even though I'm not a fan of the stuff myself. I would, however, like to argue a certain claim made in your quote. Ahem. I do like sugar candy, just not chocolate.
