A plot against chocolate!

There is apparently a move afoot to pressure the FDA to change the standard for "pure chocolate" to allow all kinds of crap substituting for real milk and real cocoa butter. This is an issue at many levels, not just for chocolate lovers, but for people concerned about food allergies and religious dietary laws.

There's a petition, sponsored by a chocolate company, you can email to the FDA opposing these changes. Go here for information.

Is nothing sacred?! They'll get my dark bittersweet when they pry it from my cold, dead, sticky fingers.

If your fingers are cold, they will preserve chocolate perfection.

Death has unusual perks.
