CHOCO-QUIZ SCORES AND AWARD!!!

This one's for BayGirl32, who put Willie Wonka to shame with her near perfect score (8 out of 10) on this week's challenging choco-quiz. What a relief! I mean, how would I have created a choco-award with a name like, say, AsBlackAsObama or PowderedToastMan? Phew! By the way, if you don't follow her fun blog, do! Her quick wit is as impressive as her choco-smarts.

Here's the test, with the correct answers bolded:
1. According to The Curtiss Candy Company, maker of the Baby Ruth bar, this candy bar was named after:
A. Baseball legend, Babe Ruth
B. Former president Grover Cleveland’s daughter (Baby Ruth was born in the White House. At age 12, she died very suddenly of diptheria - in January, 1904. So, while most believe the Baby Ruth bar was named after the baseball legend, The Curtiss Company claims to have named it after Ruth Cleveland.)
C. Chocolate connoisseur, Ruth Curtiss II
D. Dr. Ruth’s superego

2. True or false: Cocoa liquor contains no alcohol. (Feel free to eat and drive.)

3. What’s the American Milky Way bar called in England?
A. Mars Bar Good work, AsBlackAsObama.
B. Milky Way
C. Malto Bar
D. Roseanne Bar (aka Fat Arse)

4. Introduced in 1907, the Hershey’s bar cost a nickel until the price was raised to a dime in:
A. 1947
B. 1955
C. 1969 Credit to Cheeseboy & Tgo, who got this one right.
D. 1972

5. All of the following are chocolate related terms except:
A. Creaming Cheeseboy & Marlene got this one. A sexual term? Really? Oops.

B. Brazil
C. Canada
D. Switzerland

7. Reese’s peanut butter cup was introduced to the US in:
A. 1911
B. 1922
C. 1939
D. 1948

8. The first people to discover the wonders of chocolate were:
A. The Mayans
B. The Olmecs Per my bible (aka ChocolateSmarts), the Olmecs discovered chocolate well before the Mayans. It naturally follows that this was also well before the Flintstones enjoyed its wonders.
C. The Flintstones
D. The Aztecs

9. Eating dark chocolate can cause:
A. Acne
B. Twisted fantasies about Justin Bieber and his teddy bear No worries; this isn't true. Keep eating it.
C. Migraines
D. None of the above

B+'s: PowderedToastMan, TSHendrik
B's: Rachel, Marlene, Cheeseboy,Seductress, IT
B-'s and pretzel M&M's (stolen from AsBlackAsObama) for your efforts: SarahWriter, Copyboy
I can't go lower. It was a hard test, and you all did great to brave it.
I CAN give the rest of you F's, however. You are cute and all, but your answer sheets lacked answers. Today, you'll need to take the short bus home.

Class dismissed. Run along now, and enjoy some chocolate this weekend.

  7. I never got up this early to find out a test score before.
    It didn't do it this morning either. I was just awake and it's too cold to go out to find the newspaper.

  8. WOW, I AM SO EMBARRASSED. I MEAN, yeah, I knew it was BAYGIRL, not BABY GIRL. I DID. I JUST NEEDED TO MAKE A LITTLE TWEAK FOR THE SAKE OF CREATIVITY AND ALL..ARTISTIC LIBERTY.
    SO SORRY BAY GIRL. ENJOY YOUR BABY GIRL CHOCOLATE!

  9. PS ABAO, alright, alright, I'll buy my own pretzel m&m's. Geeze. :-}

    Pat, you keep breaking those BabyRuth records. xo

    Ms.A. Yeah, um, I knew that. ;-}

    GB, really? I'll check out the link. They should not confuse choco-fiends like that.xo

    Tgo, oh yeah, it's always worth the weight gain. ;-]

    MrStupid, yes, #9 is the best! xo

    Tuppence, you're sweet. I'll be right over. Have a lovely weekend yourself. ;-}

    IT, you did alright! Now have some chocolate to celebrate. I recommend m&m's. xo

    Rawknrobyn, oy, I have no words for the weirdness and errors of your ways. But I do have chocolate (in addition to Multiple Personality Disorder). !?

    Please EVERYBODY CHECK OUT BAYGIRL32's site and follow. She's really awesome. And I'm really embarrassed. I mean, creative!

    xoChocolate kisses,
    Robyn

  10. I did better than I thought. I'm happy with my B+. I'm going to go put it up on the fridge.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I got a stinkin' "B"?!!!!!! I worked hard and deserved that "F" for "fantastic", "fabulous", "fucktard". :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Whoot Whoot! My own chocolate bar...Thank you Robyn. Ummmmm

    ReplyDelete
  13. I actually thought it was my OLD eyes that had been deceiving ME and had to go back and check after I left that comment.

    ReplyDelete
  14. A B? This is just like college again. Well, like college when I took bowling and got a B.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love Reese's peanut butter cups, but they are not American??

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes, Ma'am. I will follow your final orders!!! I like to excel in chocolate-eating!

    ReplyDelete
  17. TS, yes, you did pretty well! I wonder if you and PowderedToastMan cheated off of each other's papers, being as you got the same scores. ?? xo

    Marlene, why, you ungrateful little b*#@! J/K. Run along now. :-)

    Enjoy Baygirl! You so deserve it! xo

    Ms.A, no, it was my old eyes. Not yours. ;-}

    Cheeseboy, I can't tell if you are happy or sad about this. I can tell you that Chocolate is better than Bowling! xo

    Sarah, you're right. I just re-checked, and I made an error. I should've written introduced "in" vs "to." You sure know your Reese's peanut butter cups. =-}

    Great, BB. Just save a few of the regular M&Ms for me. And a few more, please. No, more than that. That's better. xo

    Chocolate kisses,
    Robyn

  18. lol! Congratulations 'BAY'girl32!

    I've had 3 bags of the pretzel m&m's.... Two were really good.... One of the bags tasted like old stale pretzels.... 66% success rate isn't too bad....

    ReplyDelete
  19. However, peanut and regular m&m's have a 100% success rate!

  20. I think I would have got one of those correct. I wish I would have tried better. Maybe next time!

    I would prefer licking chocolate off of your lips than trying to answer questions and things of that nature...

    Less talk, more action..is what I always say.

    ReplyDelete
  21. How do you think of these questions? They are brilliant but oh so very tough. I could only answer them if I were to massively cheat via google ;0)

    I can't wait too see the next quiz :0)

    ReplyDelete
  22. ABAO, thanks for the statistics on the different types of M&M's. Sorry for the stle package. xo

    Oh Blase, keep the sweet talk coming, handsome. You still get an F, though. ;0>

    Thanks Marnie! I don't really know this stuff myself. I just enjoy eating it, but the trivial facts are interesting too. xo

    Choco-kisses,
    Robyn

  23. I didn't think I got a B+ but I'll take it. Didn't T.S. and I get the same grade last time? Seems a little suspicious if you ask me. I suspect him of copying off me. I would expect that from Copyboy but not T.S.

    Can't wait til the next quiz. I'm gonna start studying right away.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I told TS the same thing, PTM. That is, I suspect you copied off of each other. Now I'm wondering how you both earned that big kiss from Obama...?!

    PS Unlike your tests, I graded on a very low curve. Oh, I better start studying for your next exam. I shall earn 1 point some day. ;-]

    xoRobyn

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm all for equal opportunity.... But I don't remember planting a big smooch on either TS or PTM....

    ReplyDelete
  26. The most famous ones always act like they don't remember, ABAO. I'm sure PTM and TS will never forget it, though.
    Cheers,
    xoRobyn
