Lindt's stuff isn't bad. We're big Ghirardelli fans, with Godiva a close second.

Whenver we go to Disney, I always spend too much time at the Ghirardelli store. They hand out free samples!

Speaking of Godiva, my wife's favorite drink is a chocolate martini which I make using the 1/2 oz. Godiva liqueur, 3 oz. vanilla vodka, 1/2 oz. Patron Citronage, a splash of cherry juice shaken with ice, strained and topped with 3 cherries on a skewer.

Another great chocolate drink to try requires a blender:
Chocolate Mess
1/2 cup of ice
1 oz. Godiva Liqueur
1 oz. Kaluha
1 oz. Razzmatazz
1 tablespoon of powdered cocoa
1 scoop of chocolate ice cream
blend until smooth and serve with a bit of chocolate syrup on top and fresh whipped cream if you like.

That's a cool store man, we went ape shit in there a while back. Got the silver insulated bag to keep our stuff cold for free we bought so much.

Speaking of sweet drinks, check this out.

Cream Cheese Clusterfuck Martini

1) Buy the biggest log of cream cheese you can find. Slather it with as much butter as you can. Try to get at least a two-inch butter border around all sides of the cream cheese.
2) Dip the thing in a vat of sour cream then roll it in three different sugars – turbinado, pure cane and finally confectioner’s sugar.
3) Pop it in the freezer for 30 minutes, then repeat the above steps.
4) Push the handle of a wooden spoon through the center of the thing to make a hole. Fill this hole with a mixture of equal parts jelly, maple syrup and vegetable shortening.
5) Stick Tootsie Pops in the top and stud it all around with Peanut M&Ms and sugar cubes.
6) Crumble nine Take 5 candy bars and use them to crust the cream cheese thing all over.
7) Sprinkle with Sicilian sea salt and jelly beans.
8) Place on a bed of funnel cake and drizzle with honey.
9) Dump the entire thing into a large industrial-strength blender, and mix with 2 cups rum, 1/2 cup gin, and 1/2 cup vodka. Blend until completely smooth.

Drink and enjoy.

Wow as delicious as that sounds, I think I'll have to pass.

Reminds me of this:
