Walls Without Borders

I want to live in a world where white chocolate is treated equally to dark, milk, and semi-sweet chocolate -- even though I'm not a fan of white chocolate.

It's how I roll.


  1. How do you feel about clothing rights?

  2. White chocolate isn't chocolate at all. There's no cocoa in it. I do not sympathize with you on this one. :-)

  3. Kengo - Seeing as the topic of clothing rights tends to get overly heated, I would prefer to refrain from discussing the topic right now.

    O-Mo - If by 'cocoa' you mean 'cocoa powder' I guess one could argue, assuming you believe cocoa powder is essential to something being considered chocolate...

    But white chocolate is still made with cocoa butter -- in fact, it's basically just milk chocolate minus the cocoa powder. When I, personally, realized this, I was able to accept white chocolate as a true variation of chocolate.

    You see, I believe chocolate is that which is derived from the cocoa bean. White chocolate is derived from the cocoa bean; therefore, white chocolate is, I believe, chocolate.

  4. I was going to write "cacao mass" or "cacao solids" but didn't figure most people would even know what I was talking about or care, so I simplified.

    Despite having a derivative of the bean in it, I don't consider white chocolate to be truly "chocolate" because I don't define "chocolate" as "anything containing a derivative of the cacao bean" (oh the unpleasantness of considering all such products to be "chocolate" edibles...).

    Since I define "chocolate" a bit differently from you, I just don't consider "white chocolate" to truly be "chocolate", even though it has its place in some very tasty desserts.

    ...but perhaps this is all overcomplicating a fun and lighthearted post... ;-)
