Chocolate vs. Lemon

My husband loves lemon...lemon bars, lemonade, lemon candy, lemon turnovers...you name it. If it has lemon in it, he's sure to be a big fan. When I first met my husband I was going to school and working in a little bakery in Salt Lake City. He'd often come in to see me...or maybe it was for the lemon turnovers. =)

I've always known about my husband's love of lemon, but I didn't realize how much he really, really loves lemon. About a week or so ago, my husband informed me and some cousins/friends we were with at the time, that lemon is the new chocolate. Lemon replace chocolate!?!? I don't think so! I know lemons are good for you, but chcolate can be too. The way I see it, chocolate will always be chocolate and lemon can never replace it. Well, I guess I'll need to find some recipes that incorporate both lemon and chocolate...then we can both be happy. =)

Boy, that IS a dilemma -- I love both of them. We're going to have the lemon dessert that my quilty peep Jewels makes -- it's super delicious LOL!

I know of one dessert where I prefer lemon flavor, it is called "Lemon Lush" but it also is made with other flavors (of instant pudding), and I've had chocolate and butterscotch but the lemon is better than both, IMO. But, in anything else I feel sure that I would most likely choose chocolate over lemon. Imagine this, "chocolate kiss or lemon drop"...Yeah, chocolate kiss for sure.

well, this is interesting. i hadn't thought about it before but i think we have a similar thing going on in our family. me and lucy are absolute chocoholics and hyrum and reed could take it or leave it. but hyrum LOVES lemon bars and reed LOVES lemonade.

Next time you come over for dinner I'll be sure to have a very tasty lemonade for Rick and a new lemon rice salad recipe I just found.

Sorry Ricky....I am totally on Anna side!! Chocolate is a staple and can never be replaced or removed for that matter. I still think your great though....
