Sweet Victory!

As a proud and loyal Democrat I am determined to, as John F. Kennedy said in his Inaugural Address, "pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend..."

...Eat any chocolate...

Last night I made a major sacrifice to the cause of victory at the Willistown Dems and Malvern Democrats' fundraiser last night, a Chocolate Tasting! It's a rough job, but someone had to do it.

Here were two of the evening's seven "candidates," chocolates from various makers and parts of the world. I told someone this is how we should run elections in the United States: Connect a presidential candidate to each type of chocolate, and whichever chocolate is to the "taste" of the majority determines the winner!

I really think I have something here.





Just think: No more debates!

In addition to the gourmet chocolates being judged, plenty of other tasty treats were available of what the organizers promoted as "the latest health food, Chocolate!" Hey, works for me! The chocolate-trivia information on one table noted, "Chocolate contains antioxidants which may help prevent cancer and heart disease." Yep, that's the only reason I eat it -- that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

(Or it may be more accurate to say it's sticking to me.)

Other fascinating facts about chocolate, from the same source:

"The largest slab of fudge was over 2,000 pounds and was made in Canada." Pass the knife...

"In general, the shelf life for chocolate is a year." ( I'll have to take their word for that, as the shelf life for chocolate in our house is about two hours.)

Anyway, feast your eyes on the assorted yummies:





In the evening's other "election," the Party partygoers bought raffle tickets to put into the bag of their favored Presidential candidate.



This was one of the prizes at stake. (This basket featured a saying, "Promise me anything...but give me chocolate!" A winning campaign strategy if I ever heard one.)



Pennsylvania State Senator Andy Dinniman stopped by to lend support and give a pre-primary pep talk. (If he nabbed a brownie or two along the way, I'll never tell!)



The conversation was lively, and whether folks were sporting Obama or Hillary buttons, the atmosphere was of Democrats united and ready to taste victory!
