Hey there, I found my Felchlin bar at Food Emporium on 3rd at 68th Street. They're the only place I know of that carries them, besides Clay, of course.

I am new to all of this, so I'm not sure how this works, but I just read your profile and I swear it was me. I also love chocolate and have been collecting books and anything that has to do with chocolate. I also eat M&Ms everyday. I have a small chocolate business in my home. I make truffles and am self taught. Still learning as I go. I also work as a server on off seasons. I need to get a real picture of me, working on that. Do you have posters to sell or ideas for a wall in my kitchen?

Hello! To answer your question, Quinoa is a pseudocereal. It's treated like rice or couscous. The closest thing I could compare it to isNestle "Crunch". The website is

You could go to Nashville with us for Labor Day - see World Pastry Team Championship info in the right column. Should be relatively inexpensive.Holly

You are and I cut from the same (chocolate) block, I swear! I love it all too. I guess my sweet tooth is just out of control! :)As for the job, I was a reader of Candy Addict for a long time and I applied to the first round of hires way back over two years ago. So basically, luck! :)

Great, I will find all of them that I have and send them your way. I don't know if you have been, but World Market has a FANTASTIC selection of chocolate bars from all over the US. I graduated from Ecole Chocolat and we had a tasting assignment where the winner (of 23 bars of dark chocolates were tasted, ugh!) was a chocolate made in Russia. Divine! I am happy to send you the ones I have from that as well, but there may be staple marks. Do you have a World Market close by?

You should have seen the look in her face, it was like: "how could I ever lived without this marvelous thing", It was so funny, now she is hooked on it just like I am.

Hello!Thank you for the kind words. I am a self-taught chocolatier. I took a 3 month program through Ecole Chocolat ( and then read & practiced & read & practiced. I first started working with chocolate a little more than a year ago. I never expected chocolate to capture my passion but it has!I think that the key to tempering is understanding the structure & behavior of chocolate. Not to mention much patience! I don't temper by hand in my shop anymore (the only step I let machines do for me) but knowing that I can temper by hand gives me great peace of mind.I love your collection of ads and wrappers. My family makes fun of me for saving every chocolate box & wrapper I've had over the past year... it's good to know that I'm not the only one!Mandy

I just visited your chocolate candy blog--it is great! I too love M & Ms---well I did before I had to cut back---so it is neat to view all the different wrappers. Trader Joe's has got some great chocolate. How was the chocolate fountain? Did you go?Donna
