Easter is coming up - a big chocolate time of year for some people. And i'm always dreaming of chocolate anyway

Just wondering - what is your favorite "brand" of chocolate? Or item? I like milk chocolate so i would go on that as opposed to dark, but if you only eat dark you can still give your opinion

I have tried quite a few types. I'm really not a chocolate 'snob' - but if i'm going to eat it now that i'm old and not a kid just wanting to stuff myself with sweets, i like to eat something with quality.

WTS, some of the "gourmet" brands don't really do it for me any more. My actual favorite any more is any Russell Stover milk chocolate-covered marshmallow items. Hard to find many around me - they sell out very quickly. I have ordered them online before but not a good idea because i don't handle it well when i have a lot in the house!

What do you like best?

Also two brands that i love that come from the area i used to live are Zitner, and Damask. I normally cannot find them anywhere near me now in Maine - but i believe both can be mail ordered.

I pretty much would eat anything made by those two companies.

Do you still get the Cadbury eggs that look like they have yolks inside?

I used to love them and now i don't like them. Just wondering if it's me lol

SEES is my goto "higher end" chocolate for holidays. Enjoy all chocolate...even the cheaper Russell Stover that you get at CVS.

Mostly a dark chocolate eater - Lindt and Milka are my go-tos, but honestly I’m down for just about any as long as it’s not Hershey’s - it has a chalky texture I just can’t enjoy.

If we are talking about FAVORITE favorite, money no object, it’s RichArt. They have unbelievable flavor combos that always somehow work.

See's is my favorite too. "Unfortunately" we have a store within walking distance of our house and another one very close to work, so it's not just for holidays around here...

I love going and picking out just two or three of my favorites. Or selecting individual half-pound boxes for my family for Valentine's. Their chocolates are really some of the best, but pricey.

Lacking See's, since I know it's not in every state, I'd go for Lindt and Ritter Sport. Europeans make great chocolate.

See’s, since I was a young child. Our parents would buy a two pound box during the holidays, as a treat. I still enjoy these today, especially the “Molasses Chips” and “Dark Boudreaux” candies. The quality ingredients used then, appear to still be high quality today.

During the holidays, I will ship a two pound box to each of my siblings.
