From ‘The Pickwick Papers’ Charles Dickens.


‘All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and again doesn’t hurt,’

Charles M. Schulz

It's Essential Nature

‘Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing,’


‘Chocolate: here today.. gone today!’


It's Infinite Variety

‘The superiority of chocolate, both for health and nourishment will soon give it the same preference over tea and coffee in America which it has in Spain,’

 ‘Strength is the ability to break a chocolate bar into 4 pieces with your bare hands- and then eat just one of those pieces,’

Judith Viorst

‘My therapist told me the way to achieve inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.

And the T-shirt...

‘Put the chocolate in the bag and no one gets hurt!’
