  44. I think the original bit.ly link caused some confusion. It made it look like the personal favorite candy question was the one for the above contests. So, when there were no comments at the bottom of the screen I clicked the "Comments" link and I left my comment on the other "who has a sweet tooth" page. It looks like the same happened to a few others.

    To repeat my comment here: I can't eat a lot of the retail Valentine's Day candies any more. In general, I love Enjoy Life's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks. My favorite homemade candies either involve melting that down to make thin pieces in shapes or some combination of coconut or caramel, or both, and that chocolate.

    1. It's okay, Angi. I think my comment wasn't clear: I just thought that I should give you guys a heads up that other people posted over there too. You might find that some people said they commented on this post in the Rafflecopter and then not find their comments here because they commented on the wrong page.
