Cake Poll: Love and Chocolate!

Win it: Cake poll!
How time flies! It's been a while since our last Cake Poll, so we're making up for it by offering a very sweet treat: an original (not a print!) Cakespy watercolor! The watercolor (shown top) will come in a 4x5 inch frame and will go to just one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment with your responses to the below poll, centered around the star of all February sweetness: chocolate! Here goes:

  1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché?
  2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others?
  3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen?
  4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful?
  5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows?
  6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww?
  7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert?
The poll is open for anyone (US and international!) to enter; the deadline is 12 p.m. PST on Saturday, February 14. The winner will be announced shortly after!

1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: Cute...especially from Frans

2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? No fruit filled for me, I like caramels or nuts or chews

3. Milk chocolate: amateur!!! Dark all the way, and white chocolate?....walk away!!!

4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): Mole...Awful, chocolate with salt...delish!!

5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? with of course!

Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché?

As much as I'd love to shrug and say cliche, I love chocolates, and I would never turn down receiving a box of chocolates. Verdict: cute.

The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others?

Everyone can have the cherry cordials. Eww, gross.

Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen?

While I'm more of a dark chocolate girl, I have a great appreciation for a Hershey's bar. American chocolate deserves a place in my dessert diet, too.

Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful?

Awesome, but different. Hey, but however you want to work in your daily chocolate, right? It's all good.

Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows?

Hot cocoa must have marshmallows. Hot chocolate doesn't need 'em.

Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww?

As much as I tell my friends I think they're gross, I'll admit that I do get hungry when I smell them.

What's your favorite chocolate dessert?

Hardest question ever! Fudgy brownies? Those definitely have to be up there, close to number one.

February 11 | Unregistered CommenterElyse

1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché? Chocolate is cute any day of the year! It becomes cliche if you only get it on V-Day.

2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others?
Anything with coconut in it or on it! Yuck!

3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen? Respectable. But what is with all the white chocolate hate I'm seeing in these comments? Its a nice change of pace.

4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful?
Umm, AWESOME. You can never fault a dish that has chocolate in it.

5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows?
Without the marshmallows, unless they are of the vegan variety. No gelatin for me.

Not down with this at all. Actually kind of grosses me out. Shudderrrrrr.

7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert?
Chocolate Eclair Pie!

4.) Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): Awesome but overhyped.
5.) Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? With of course...homemade!
6.) Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh...sometimes...as long as there's not that dual human-synthetic smell thing happening...like BO & deodorant.
7.) What's your favorite chocolate dessert? Oh gawd...anything with chocolate...maybe just warm chocolate cake with cold vanilla ice cream (as if ice cream can be anything but cold)

3. Milk chocolate- HIGHLY RESPECTABLE CITIZEN- my fave

February 11 | Unregistered CommenterJacTpcMec

Chocolates for Valentine's Day: what was the question? i already ate all of them!
The chocolate box: i usually pass over the caramel-filled ones for the more adventurous flavors...
Milk chocolate: every chocolate has its niche
Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): life just wouldn't be as good without mole! awesome!
Hot chocolate: without - those pesky blobs get in the way of my gulping :)
Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: i'm always afraid bugs will be attracted to the scent...eww...
What's your favorite chocolate dessert? chocolate soup with banana fritters

1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché? Depends on how good it is. Not too long ago I would have said "tres cliche!" but there's a gourmet chocolate shop near where I just moved called "Chocolate Springs". Our joint present to each other this year is for my husband and i to go there, buy about 10 chocolates (they're pricey) and pig out together. Chocolate is always better shared, but is BEST when shared with someone you love. (Long winded answer... sorry!)

2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? Chocolate with fluffy chocolate filling. Bleh! Uninteresting! Next!

3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen? I'm all for very dark or white. Milk is rarely mind blowing. Any recommendations?

4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful? Never had it. A trip to California is coming though and I am SO ready for authentic mole!

5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? Homemade marshmallows and Chambord Liqueur. *dies*

6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww? Generally no, but the aforementioned chocolate shop sells a "body butter" that is cocoa powder and cocoa butter (edible and moisturizing!) and it's amazing!

7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert? Chocolate turtle cheesecake comes to mind first, so it's the winner for this survey. :-)

February 11 | Unregistered CommenterBrande

1. can be cute. but better is homemade cupcakes!
2. i like them all.
3. dark chocolate kicks milk chocolate's butt.
4. so awesome!
5. without marshmallows. one food i have never been a fan of (also lots are made w/ animal gelatin-ew)
6. chocolate lotion--butter me up, baby!
7. it's a tie between brownies and chocolate cupcakes :)

1.Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché? [I'd say cliche, esp. the ones that just change the packaging but its still the same chocolate inside]

2.The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? [I usually leave the ones with the fruit things inside]

3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen?[there are definitely some respectable ones out there]

4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful?[I honestly prefer my chocolate in my dessert]

5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? [does it really matter? i like it either way]

6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww? [i'd say eww. i just don't believe that you should smell like your favorite food]

7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert? [oh my, this is tough. but chocolate cupcakes will always have a special place in my heart... and tummy!]

February 11 | Unregistered Commentersharyl

1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cliche unless the are homemade ones

2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? nougat or cherry

3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen? milk is not a natural component in chocolate! Why put it in there!? Dark all the way.

4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful? Chocolate Gravy is my southern family's staple.

5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? I like iced hot chocolate with frozen marshmallows...I know, oxymoron.

6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: The flavour is usually off, but its always a good thing when chocolate is an option.

7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert? Chocolate Ganache Truffle Cake with Raspberry glaze from Madden's (College Station, Texas)

February 11 | Unregistered CommenterKatherine

1. Cliche, but still awesome (it's a cliche for a reason!)
2. Anything citrusy. I just cannot get into having orange in my chocolate.
3. I wouldn't give it as a gift, but it's a loyal standby - just like I wouldn't serve PB&J at a dinner party, but it doesn't mean I don't love eating it myself!
4. I've never tried, but it kind of sounds revolting.
5. With! I use marshmallow fluff - it melts more evenly across the top.
6. I think any food-scented beauty product is gross. Flowers are for my body. Chocolate is for my face.
7. Chocolate cake - either in batter form, or breakfast the morning after. I always love cake best the morning after.
