Back to Basics, CHOCO-QUIZ TIME!

School's just about in session. So let's think about chocolate! In fact, let's test your CHOCO-SMARTS! Oh stop the moaning, boys and girls. You'll have fun. [Maybe not while you're taking this test, but at some point in life, I assure you.] Go on, now, sharpen those #2 pencils. No passing notes or doing that google thing the kids like experimenting with these days. Just put your answer sheets in the comment section or email them to me at Rawknrobyn@aol.com. The top scoring student will get a sweet surprise. (It's a surprise to me too, but I'm quite sure it will be sweet.) Good luck!

  1. I've always been a lousy test taker, so I'll just say "Hi" and slink away.

  3. Alright, alright. You four are so cute you can get away with skipping the test. What about the rest of you? It's not that bad. There's gotta be some smarty-pants out there.

  4. I was pretty sure we were going to get snacks before the quiz, so I am not really prepared.

    OK, OK, I e-mailed all my answers to Cheeseboy so he could get a high score when he visits.

    How could you be so cruel?

  6. 1) If there's any justice it's B.
    2)...Erm... C? I haven't had a toblerone in years, I don't even remember who makes it.
    3)I would guess C, but I'm pretty clueless on this one as well.
    4)I'm guessing True, since it's not actually chocolate.
    5)Geez these questions get harder every time. Um, I'll say C.
    6)Pretty sure it's D. There's a 'Schokolade' shop about an hours drive from here.
    7)D?
    8)A sounds delicious. So I'll go with A.

  7. I'm copying TS's answers except for number two - I'll go with D.

  8. Wow, I actually know one of the answers! Hot Chocolate is indeed and English funk and soul group. You sexy thing!

  9. definitely thin mints. I believe it's because they send so many to the troops overseas. and number 6 is German. Tough quiz.

  10. I will totally get 90% of these wrong!!! But I will give it the good ol' college try, anyway...if for no other reason than to make a golden fool of my chocolately arse:

    1 b
    2 c
    3 b
    4 False
    5 b
    6 d
    7 a
    8 b
    9 Whew...it ended at 8.

  11. Love your challenges, but some of these, I have no clue. I assume that Thin Mints is the most popular given that my wife eats 50 boxes in a year.

  12. I am spinning my A-B-C-D wheel for each one so here goes:
    1-B
    2-c
    3-c
    4-A (True)
    5-B
    6-A
    7-B
    8-C

    Damn wheel kept getting stuck on C so I had a lot of do overs!

  13. B,C,C, False...fudge!
    Gotta work in the morning.
    xxoo, my dear. You have me thinking about chocolate now.

  14. Attention class, I'm very proud of these students for completing their exams: TS Hendrik, Marlene, Chuck and BabySis. You all did pretty well and one of you turned in a near perfect answer sheet!

    I'm somewhat proud of some of the rest of you.

    I like all of you. (Teachers aren't supposed to play favorites.)

    I'll keep this exam going for another day. (I'm giving your slower peers as much time as they need. Special Ed code and all.)

    Enjoy your playtime.

  16. Seriously. How can we take a quiz like this without running to the kitchen for a sweet snack?

    I would probably just have to say 'all of the above' and go find a Little Debbie Cake immediately after each answer.

    Sigh.

  19. This post made me super hungry for chocolate. I need chocolate now. Seriously, now. lol

    You have an award waiting for you (it's Monday's post). :) *hugs*

  20. Good work, Al and Lisa!

    Ok, ok, chocolate for all. Eh hmm, that includes the teacher and she's still awaiting some bribery.

    I think I'll post answers tomorrow afternoon, in case anyone else wants to test their choco-smarts. Thanks for your patience, my dears.

  21. Thin mints. White chocolate still has trace amounts of caffeine in it. It's not as potent as a poppy seed bagel, but I'd still be cautious when operating machinery. Do I get points for my extra credit essay?

  24. I have no idea what most of the answers are, but I REALLY want some chocolate right now!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks, Joanne! Whew. I'll just say you're a good guesser.

    Sorry about your banana hammock, Al. Tighty-whiteys aren't so bad, though. In fact, would you kindly post a picture?

    xoMiss Robyn
    PS I'll be back with answers this eve.

  26. I'm not sure about most of these answers and since I'm behind in reading the contest is over but, I'm giving answers anyway. :)

    Thin Mints is the all time number one best ever Girl Scout Cookie. The others need not exist as far I'm concerned. :)

    White "chocolate" is an abomination that should be destroyed.

    And since Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby is my favorite, I know it's pretzels.

    Awesome quiz!
