How could I live without chocolate for 3 weeks?

A true story about my trip to China and the worry about being without chocolate.

The need for chocolate

In 2011 I went to China on an escorted tour with the Royal Ontario Museum. We had several information sessions at the ROM and I learned to my great chagrin that CHOCOLATE is not made or readily available in China.
We were leaving in October for a tour of the Silk Road so naturally I went to Costco and bought the largest size Halloween chocolate treats that they carried. I stuffed it into my suitcase in a giant plastic zip lock bag. Later that week I was a Walmart when I saw MARS Bars on sale, I couldn’t resist so I also bought 2 dozen of those.
My theory was that if I ran out of money I could go into business selling chocolate bars to my fellow chocolate deprived travellers.
Unfortunately I just couldn’t make money on their addiction so I became the very popular lady on the bus trip doling out chocolate bars to my fellow addicts as needed. It was hilarious to hear their ahhhs… and the joy of chomping down on a wonderful Mars bar.
The food was good but it was missing that little extra sweet and chocolate is paramount!!!
So remember Chocolate is a great thing to carry and useful for trade, negotiation or sale in a chocolate deprived environment!
Or like myself make a friend …share your chocolate.

That was a great idea, too bad you didn't make the money that you wished, however it shows that you are not a greedy person but a sharing person which makes you great in my eyes.
