TEST YOUR CHOCO-SMARTS!


Settle down, boys and girls. It's time for a Choco-Quiz. The last one was in February, and the Superintendent told me I need to significantly improve performance. {Between you and me, he didn't do it for me either, but that's not important right now.} Rachel, Kristy, and LifeBeginsat30ty had the highest choco-IQ's last time. Let's see who gets that title and a very special award this time! I have installed hidden cameras on your desktops to deter you from cheating. I know you can't see them. DUH! That's because they are "hidden." Can you say "special"? I knew you could! Now, sharpen those #2 pencils for ole times sake. Keep rotating the sharpener handle over and over again, nervously trying to get your pencil just sharp enough but not so sharp that you crack the pencil tip and have to start all over. And over and over again. Hurry up, though. There's a line of students behind you waiting to sharpen their pencils too. Now, put it behind your right ear or between two left toes (for ole times sake). You can email me your answers (through my profile page), or you can list them in the comments section and take a chance that your classmates will copy your guesses. It's your choice. Have fun!

1) How many different colors of regular M&M’s are there?

2) The double chocolate hot fudge cake that my nephew and I love to inhale (and ravage) is really the only item worth ordering (and eating) at what U.S. eatery? (3 words)

3) Finish this choco-lyric: The world looks mighty good to me (7 words)

4) Which of the following is NOT a Hershey’s kiss flavor:
A) Candy corn
B) New York Cheesecake
C) Camouflage Colored
D) Pink Lemonade

5) Finish this choco-slogan: Hungry? Grab a _________.

6) Which of the following is NOT an actual M&M flavor:
A) Nut What You Think
B) A Day at the Peach
C) Gone Bananas
D) Orange You Glad

7) True or false: Chocolate and cocaine are derived from the same plant species.

8) Which company was the first to include a guide to the chocolates contained in a box?
A) Whitman’s
B) Ghirardelli
C) Cadbury
D) Cailler

9) The word mocha is originally:
A) French
B) Arabic
C) Italian
D) Spanish

10) At about what temperature does chocolate melt?
A) 75 degrees Fahrenheit
B) 90 degrees Fahrenheit
C) 100 degrees Fahrenheit
D) 110 degrees Fahrenheit


11) EXTRA CREDIT QUESTION: Name the now famous person pictured above.
Hint #1: Photo taken in 1990.
Hint #2: She has nothing to do with chocolate or sweet things.

  1. I honestly don't know the answer to any of them, but candy corn kisses sound about as delicious as licking my own armpit and trust me, that is not delicious at all.

    I guess I could google the answers, but that will involve work. You're going to post the answers, right?

  2. Oh Cheeseboy, I will post the answers. I need your classmates to turn in their exams first - while you sit there and twirl your pencil around, trying to lick your arm pits. I'm afraid I'm going to have to send you home on the short bus. Sorry.

  5. I don't know the answers to any of these questions! I'll have a guess at the slogan though. "Hungry? Grab a big fat chocolate penis!"

  6. I guess I was lucky to read this after the answers were posted! I'm following you from FF and I must say I do look forward to reading more.

  7. I have no damn idea of the answers to any of those questions. But, I do enjoy spreading Chocolate over my wife and licking it off of her nipples and things of that nature...

  8. I love eating chocolate...that is why I'm so ashamed that I could not answer one of these questions. Chocolate is the cure-all for everything :0)

    You should read Naked Chocolate by David Wolfe and Shazzie...it's considered a "bible" for some folks.

  9. Living in England, I don't know much about American chocolate, but I do know that chocolate comes from the same plant as cocaine, and was once used as a currency. Also, the higher cocoa content in chocolate is better for you than the one's with lesser content.
    OOOH! not a very fair contest!

  12. My little - clearing throat - darlings, don't fret now. Those few of you who turned in your exams did pretty well, actually. You may go play tether ball. Don't pull Susie's hair ribbon and make her cry again. As for Uber, we'll have that one on one start with you asap. Your answers may risk my, ah, positions with the Superintendent. I do especially like #3, though.

    Thanks to my new FF students! I'm FF-ing you too - and I don't mean anything inappropriate by that.

    Cheers and plain chocolate kisses,
    Robyn

  15. I was gonna take a stab at this - but then I saw Copyboy's comment, and your response to it....and nearly pee'd my pants at the short bus comment.....so I'm afraid I've wasted too much time as it is, and the clock has run out on my test. Give me a big fat goose egg.

    ReplyDelete
  16. HAHAHAHA!!!! I am dying over this, I have no clue about the answers (ok maybe a few of them) but the comments are killing me with LOLZ. I too am THIS CLOSE to rolling on the floor with laughter over the short bus comment. And look at you rockstar! I go away for a week and come back and you have 12 new followers! :) Can't wait for the chocolate answers, this is seriously too much fun of a post.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am sorry I didn't see this sooner. Dunno what I'd have done about it because I knew the answer to maybe one or two questions.
    Does that mean I can't have any more chocolate?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sorry I don't eat chocolate. Yes please pick your jaw off the floor please. LOL. I think I know only 2 or 3 of the answers.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Children, I see you're getting antsy. I know it's Friday and the weather's great, but some of your classmates are still working. Keep the noise down. Truthfully, I didn't know most of these answers myself. What imbecile makes up standardized tests any way? I mean, run along now. I'll post the answers this weekend.

    Mike, I'm not familiar with students like you. It seems I need to see if there's any more room on the bus with Cheeseboy. Sorry. He's a very nice boy, though. Just try not to lick his armpits.

    Cheers and plain chocolate kisses,
    Robyn

  20. I'm going to flunk this one. This isn't what I plan to major in in university anyway. Hehe.

  21. Although I consider myself quite a chocolate freak, I confess I didn't know the answers to most of these questions! However, I DID know that coco and cocaine were derived from the same plant! What does that say about ME?!!

    This was really fun! Thanks!

  34. My darling Betty. That was truly a lousy effort on your part, not to mention the time was up for taking this exam hours ago. Copyboy turned his in at the last moment, while you were gazing out the window. Sorry honey. I'll be making sure there's room for you on the bus too.
