I’ve had a theory for some time now…there is no food out there that cannot be improved by either a little garlic or chocolate. Think about it…
Chocolate and Garlic
Any food out there… add either chocolate or garlic to the flavor… and it becomes better.
Milk -> Chocolate milk
Fruit –> chocolate fondued fruit
Shrimp –> scampi
I haven’t found a single food that doesn’t fall under these criteria.
There Can’t Be Too Much…
And I have also maintained that there is no such thing as too much of either.
It’s a running joke between my daughter and I. She maintains there can be too much chocolate. And she detests garlic on a matter of principle.
I have steadfastly maintained there cannot be too much of either.
I’m having to rethink that…
The Cheese Curds
I was standing in the grocery, waiting at the deli counter while they sliced some ham. Behind me was a display table with … cheese curds.
(For those of you reading this in the midwest, know that we don’t get cheese curds in the East.)
So I picked up a sample, noting the label said “garlic cheese curds”.
Those cheese curds were so loaded with garlic I could feel it burning up my throat and into my nose. The deli clerk handed me a slice of ham as my eyes began to water. Apparently it had been happening all morning.
I haven’t run across the situation where there is too much chocolate. I don’t know if there is one at all. But I do know that if there is, it will clobber me in a sneak attack like the garlic did.
