CHOCO-SMARTS TEST SCORES!!

Welcome back, kids! I have this sweet batch of prizes for the top scoring student and one of you got a perfect score! Here are the correct answers:

(1) The all-time most popular Girl Scout cookie is the:    (a)Chocolate chip (b)Thin mint (c)Do-Si-Do (d)Cutie PaTutie 

  (2) All of the following use Fair Trade Chocolate except:
    (a) Global Exchange (b)Divine (c) Toblerone (d)Dean’s [Alex, you should've stuck with TS's original answer. Cheeseboy's wife helps keep Thin mints popular. I don't know how she keeps that perfect figure. She's hot. Have you seen her? Oh, back to the answers...]
 .   (3) Which famous woman threatened to sue Cadbury in May, 2011 for using her name in their slogan: “Move over, *insert first name here*,  there’s a new diva in town.” (a)Naomi Campbell (b)Tyra Banks (c)Jennifer Hudson (d)Halle Berry (Naomi resented being compared to chocolate. Cadbury apologized and I don't think the lawsuit ever happened.)
   (4) True or False: White chocolate contains NO caffeine. Ideally, there is NO caffeine in white chocolate because white chocolate is not made with cocoa. As a few of you ladies astutely pointed out, though, small amounts of caffeine can be found in white chocolate. This is due to cross contamination. So I gave you all credit for this one.

  (5)  In addition to the warm and tasty beverage, Hot Chocolate is: (a)A popular Chicago night club (b)   An English funk and soul group (c)A relatively new addition to Crayola crayons (d)A Canadian children’s cartoon character
 (6)  Schokolade means chocolate in what language? (a)Dutch (b)   Polish (c)Danish (d)German
 (7) All of the following are true regarding Devil’s Food Cake EXCEPT: (a)    It’s generally made with lots of butter (b)   It’s Martha Stewart’s favorite dessert (c)It’s very chocolaty (d)It originated around 1900

(8) Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby ice cream includes what?    (a)    Pretzels (b)Cherries (c)Graham crackers (d)Bananas

  4. Congrats to the winners! This was one hellafun quiz. I'm going to go and get some Ben & Jerry's since I now have a craving thanks to a certain pop quiz. I also find I have a taste for chocolate covered pretzels. ;)

  7. C+? Well, ain't that the perfect metaphor for my life?
    Chocolate always makes me break out. Well, that's not exactly true.

  8. Hey Robyn! Right backatcha, girl; I'm YOUR newest follower!

    Now, where did I stash those darn M&Ms? I suddenly have an inexplicable craving for chocolate!

  9. And I guessed on most of them. You know I never did get that cake you supposedly sent in the mail. I should get one for my A-.

  10. Alex, it happens to the best of us.

    Al, C is for chocolate. Plus is for...? Additives in the chocolate? I got nothin'.

    Thanks Nancy! Regarding the inexplicable cravings, see my comment to Alex.

    PTM, you're right. I'll start another chocolate cake right now. Be patient. And just keep being patient.

  14. At least I didn't fail! (only because I didn't take it). I'm reduced to commenting in bunches these days, so I miss some things.

  15. I read the answer to #4 a few months ago and was intrigued by it. I just wasn't sure if you were trying to have it be a trick question or not. :) And I would have been really worried if thin mints weren't the most popular!!
