Friendship

‘I never met a chocolate I didn’t like,’

From ‘The Pickwick Papers’ Charles Dickens.

Love

It's Essential Nature

It's Infinite Variety

‘Life is like a box of chocolates... You never know what you’re going to get,’

Forrest Gump

Health

‘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,’

Thomas Jefferson

Therapy

 ‘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.

Tribute

‘I owe it all to the little chocolate doughnuts,’

And the T-shirt...

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