An hour of work at minimum wage can buy more potatoes than most people
would care to carry. You can make a nice meal from pasta, peas, and
maybe a dab of butter and grated parmesan for around 25 cents a
serving. You can make a lot of very tasty chicken quesadillas for not
much money.

I just saw a billboard for Bud Light Wheat Beer. Strange.

What I don't understand is why Swiss and German (Ritter Sport)
chocolate is so good and Hersheys and Cadbury are so bad. They don't
grow cocoa beans in Switzerland or in Germany.

We used to have superb chocolate here in San Francisco, Joseph
Schmidt. Hershey's bought the operation just to shut it down. Bastards
and their gritty sour-milk excuse for chocolate!


It's crap anyhow.

Yep, potatoes are around $ for 10 lbs over here (in Sacramento).

Pasta is just flour and eggs, right?

Wheat beers are good.

Which Swiss chocolate do you recommend?  Lindt?

What about Ghirardelli?

Hersheys... it tastes alright.  Kids like it.  But now I'm curious
what *real* chocolate tastes like... haha

Michael Inscribed thus:

Try "Thornton"  Chocolate heaven since 1911.  Or so the advert goes.

You can make your own chocolate.......
The problem with commecial chocolate is the excessive cocoa butter and
hydrolised fats they put it to make it cheap.
The best commercial chocolate comes from Belgium.

Most of the Italian stuff is flour and water. Most is made from
US-grown hard winter wheat. We grow it, ship it to Italy, they add
water, they remove the water, and then they sell it back to us.

Widmer is excellent, especially draft. I don't like the Pyramid.

I'll have to try the Bud Light. How do they make wheat beer from rice?

That's good. Lindor too... maybe the same folks?

Mostly mediocre. Their caramel filled darks are good.
