On Valentine’s Day ( or any day for that matter), chocolate puts a song in our heart:

French nougats with nuts may be quite continental,
but Chocolate is a girl’s best friend.
Gummies are yummy…but not transcendental, or an indulgence that
makes your heart go pitty-pat.
Fondue grows cold and candy hearts get old,
and roses lose their petals in the end.
But bonbon or sheet cake, you can’t help but partake,
‘Cause Chocolate is a girl’s best friend.
…Godiva!
…Ghirardelli!
Fine Belgium truffles,
Talk to me Vosges, tell me all about it!
There may come a time when a lass needs a cupcake,
Chocolate is a girl’s best friend.
There may come a time when a thick creamy milkshake
is the only thing that keeps you sane.
It’s Chocolate that makes all good things great,
so make sure you have some on hand.
When push comes to shovin’, and you need some lovin’
Oh Chocolate…yes Chocolate…I don’t mean vanilla…yes Chocolate is a girl’s best friend!
