The deal with chocolate

A true way to check if someone is a friend is to ask if they know your least favorite foods. Sure it’s easy to notice what your friend always eats or would bite your hand off if you ever tried to sneak a nibble but do they know what you avoid like the plague?

Needless to say Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday.
