2 chocolate lovers and I were on our way to one chocolate lover's whereabouts to get the Kitkat that he offered to share with us. I was busy thinking about thing-ama-jigz when they began discussing about how they prefer not so expensive chocolates like Kitkat to Cadbury or Ferrero. They both agreed that Kitkat tastes so much better than the latter two. They also mentioned many other chocolate brands under Kitkat's category which primarily refers to the ones that are inexpensive and incheap(if such a term exists, which i doubt.haha) at the same time like Hershey's, etc. In short, they're fans of the medium priced brown colored delights.
I don't know what got into me that made me say " Alam nyo pnkafavorite kong chocolate? FLAT TOPS. As in."
Then they began laughing and commented like
"ang mura mo palang ligawan"
" bka gusto mo rin ng serg, or ung mga bilog bilog na tigpipiso."
"ano ba nman yan, mga mumurahin?"
"tsaka ung chocolate coins"
"o di kaya Goya. gusto mo rin ng Goya noh?"
Maybe I flushed a little but of course I didn't see it. I so wanted to elaborate how flat tops mean to me but I opted to save myself from further embarrassment. I wasn't ashamed that I love Flat Tops because I really do. They're like the best chocolate pieces that have been invented minus the sky-high price and glamorous label. But the fact that they see it as cheap and unworthy of notice makes it, uhm, yeah, embarrassing. I just kept silent and smiled and they went on.
You might find it cheap too. But I don't care.
I also love Cadbury. I love Hershey's kisses and bars. I love Merci. I love Toblerone. I love Lindt. I love chocolates (and ice cream).
I love it dark or milky. Not white. No nuts and whatsoevers. No toffee or caramel. No other flavors like curry, or paprika, or chilli. (they're weird but they do exist).
but, however, nevertheless, my most love kind is still the one wrapped in orange stripes plastic and a piece of foil that can be bought almost anywhere in the Philippines - RICOA FLAT TOPS.
I like its texture which is very slightly sandy, its sweetness and the fact that I can eat it wherever and whenever I want to.
When I was in high school, a P9.50 pack of it was a resident in my bag and three pieces of it in my pocket.
In college, my food locker is useless without the bigger pack of flat tops in it.
Now, i'm still addicted to it even though it sells p2.00 a piece already. (twas only piso a piece back then)
yeah, it's mumurahin but it makes me smile=)
