    Been thinking about chocolate lately. Dark chocolate is high in antioxidants. If all I have is instant coffee, add a peice of chocolate for sweetness and a boost of energy. Any other ideas for Survival Chocolate?

    I have 10-12 dark chocolate bars vacuum sealed. Been in there going on 2 years now. At the 1 year mark, I took one out and it looked and tasted like I just brought it home from the store. I keep telling myself to pack up some more but haven't done it yet. :rolleyes:

    For sweetener though, I'll take honey. :)

    Oh yes, honey is a fav. Local guy makes it few miles from me and stocking up on that. I remember seeing films with all the chocolate that was dropped with food rations during WWII. Why chocolate? That's what made me think about the subject.

    Remember Easter is right around the corner so stock up after. I have Christmas chocolate, Valentines Day Chocolate and here comes Easter. You don't want to be around me without my chocolate fix.

    My sister, who lives about an hour from me, has a beekeeper right down the road. In 2010 I bought a 5 gallon bucket from him; 63.5lbs. MMMMMM

    Just don't tell AuntJoe! :sssh:

    Just remember the darker the chocolate the better it will store.. butter fats in milk chocolate can go rancid.. I learned that the hard way.. never leave a hershy bar in the car glove box in baggies for too long.. sure it was melty and rehardened but taste wise.. it was edible but just barely..
    But dark chocolate in storage lasts for a very long time it may get a white bloom on it, don't worry it is just the coco fats rising to the surface.. doesn't affect the flavor. but I do store my bakers chocolate vac packed in mason jars just too keep any cross flavors from happening..
