    As long as it's not white, I'm pretty much in (though I often don't love chocolate ice cream).

    As a general matter, I will skip past any non-chocolate desserts when ordering from a menu, with a very limited handful of exceptions.
    If choosing the dessert to be made, like say for my birthday, it will 100% always include chocolate.
    Chocolate cream pie is the best pie (fight me).

    You have obviously never had my mother-in-law's apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or her pound cake. Or her banana pudding.

    Banana pudding is actually one of the non-chocolate things on my list...my mother makes fantastic homemade stuff.
    Apple pie is good, and I eat it at Thanksgiving, etc., but it's not something I dream about the way I dream about chocolate.
    Pound cake, you can have. I don't care who made it.

    What if it is chocolate pound cake? She has been known to make that version by special request

    That might nudge me in the right direction, but still...why not just make chocolate cake?

    How long will it be until someone starts the Ymm, Cannabis thread?

    I thought that's how all the other Ymmm threads got their start!

    Don't tempt *some* people. (It won't be me/I/myself; not gonna get sloppy.)

    Chocoholics run in the family. My mother was one. She was quite content with Hershey Kisses. Godiva chocolates were wasted on her. I would go for the Godiva, better yet Panache*, over Hershey Kisses if they are available (and I'm not paying).

    Have you eaten banana pudding cake? My wife's cousin owns a bakery in downtown W/S and Mrs. jvoo1 is helping her out a couple of days a week. They have a banana pudding cake that everyone loves. I've not had it because I'm hooked on their chocolate eclair. I evidently got the chocolate craving from my Mom.

    No, but that sounds delicious! Can we make a wager that you'll lose just so you can send me one of those?

    Not a betting man. I'm unlucky. In raffles or things of that nature, I never win. However, years ago the Moose Lodge would raffle off a new truck. The way it worked was the Lodge sold $100 tickets and then on set night they drew out tickets. If your ticket was pulled you were out of the running for the truck. On two such nights, our tickets were left in the bucket until there were 3 left. At that time, if you wanted to sell your ticket or buy someone else ticket you had 10 minutes to make the deal. Both times we sold our tickets for over $1000. That's the only kind of bet I win. As for the banana pudding cake, if you're in W/S I can get you a deal on one.

    Give me a piece of 60% Cacao and I'm content. Anything darker is too bitter. Don't add mint or almonds, it ruins it. Milk chocolate OK in a pinch, but just not the same satisfaction.

    My two exceptions are homemade banana pudding and Kilwin's salted caramel ice cream.
