My kids are now at an age where they want variety in their food. From a limited menu of around twenty dishes, their taste buds have suddenly exploded to include new tastes and flavours.
However, one flavour that is a constant in their lives is chocolate! They can eat chocolate, drink chocolate and talk chocolate. They can have it at any time – day or night. They can have it when they are sad or happy, energetic or tired.

They fight over it. Sometimes, they even share a rare moment of sibling harmony when they eat chocolate.
Chocolate syrup is a fixture in milk shakes and any snack that the kids rustle-up.
Chocolate moustaches and chocolate stains, chocolatey grins and brown teeth, gooey fingers and chocolatey kisses are only some of the cute memories.
Chocolate can mend sibling fights, brighten up one’s day and provide mouth watering memories.
Biscuits and donuts, wafers and chocolate-chip cookies, dark chocolate cake, chocolate fondue, chocolate ice-cream; the children have tried it all. I don’t think they can ever outgrow this flavour.
According to my children – any time is chocolate time!
Chocolate is the flavour for all seasons.
