My Favourite Thing (at the moment) | August 29, 2011

When I was a little girl I watched 'The Sound of Music' at least 300 times. The songs were a staple in our household, making regular appearances in shower solos and impromptu hums.

Despite possessing the highest regard for this beloved musical, I never related to the song “My Favourite Things”. This is mostly due to the fact that I found Fräulein Maria's list of 'favourite things'  somewhat lacking (and, not to mention, rife with the 'cheese' factor). Sadly, “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” did absolutely nothing for me.

In addition, I found that prancing around in my bedtime garments and belting out the phrase "schnitzel with noodles"  helped little in the event of sheer, blinding terror.

I realise now that perhaps my indifference to Mr Hammerstein's lyrics is also due to one profound and glaring omission: green and black's 85% dark chocolate.

The stuff rocks. Buy in bulk.

  1. you are funny. this post topped off a very nice day x
  2. hihi.... totally agree! The Sound of Music was also my childhood classic.... & this chocolate rocks!
  3. are too funny. I wonder why they didn't include chocolate on the list, as that is, I'd imagine, a lot of people's favorite thing. You've made me nostalgic for this movie...I may have to watch it today ;)
  4. That makes two of us! ;)
  5. This bar also makes a delicious ganache to top off cupcakes, we use it in our spicy mayan chocolate cupcake recipe!
  6. I've got to say, I love this post of yours.. because of the story you told about Sound of Music and your love of dark chocolate, of course!

  8. I hear ya! I've got an open packet in the cupboard as I type!! oh so good!

    This chocolate looks completely divine. I've always been such a sucker for some good bittersweet chocolate!
    You made me crave some now?

  11. Haha..I can completely understand! Bright copper kettles never really got me either!
  12. completely understand your addiction
  13. Totally with you on this one. Chocolate would be number 1, 2 and 3 on my list of favourite things and that chocolate looks heavenly. Yumm!
