I like chocolate -- but it is fairly difficult to find in these parts. It is all sugar and milk powder and additives and preservatives and flavors and may contain traces of coco.

Beer has gone much the same way, unfortunately. If beer is in fact microbrewed it doesn't stay microbrewed for long. It gets brought out by lion nathan and gets 'brewed' in a big chemical vat in Tamaki, Auckland, same as everything else, before long.

I don't really see anything microbrewed around here, in the local liquor shops or supermarkets. Just the same old same old same old.

I used to enjoy chocolate stout, occasionally, from the Wig and Pen in Canberra. They were a microbrew. Brewed on site. They brewed some pretty good beers.

I don't mind hoppy so long as it isn't bitter. For quite some time I thought that I didn't like hoppy beer becauase it was bitter -- but hops are fragrant and bitter is something else.

I quite like amber ales. Or pale ales if they are flavorful. Not keen on bitter beers, though.

I did use to quite enjoy baileys...

I have been meaning to / thinking about making ice-cream.

Something rather odd has happened, in New Zealand. It is like the public health people have finally done something right and they are trying to help consumers develop a bit of an aversion to meat / dairy through some sort of subversive anti-marketing campaign. Making those things seem slightly repulsive. Marketing vegetarian / vegan stuff quite a bit more. Part of that... Ice cream is next to impossible to find, too. It's all whipped sugar and emulsifiers.

I want to try and make ice-cream myself. Properly. With the egg yolk custard. When I was a kid there was a Mooloo Ice Cream Factory, and, well, I am from the Waikato (maybe the dairy capital of the world) and I remember the ice cream was pretty good... At least I thought it was when I was a kid. I remember something something about egg yolks to make it creamy... So anyway, I'd like to try making ice-cream 'properly', myself.

Not sure what to flavor it with. Maybe dutch cocoa??
