There is nothing like comfort food in a crisis. When times are tough, there is nothing to gain to deprive yourself so I think a prepared pantry should have luxury, comfort food.
What food is more comforting than chocolate? One square of it can lift even the most gloomy mood. Besides the luxury and pure delight it can give you, there are many health benefits to dark chocolate.
Of course you can buy chocolate anywhere but if you want to save some money, Aldi’s has organic chocolate for $1.14 for a big 3.5oz bar. I bought 30 of them last time I was there and have a lot of chocolate! I’m buying more today! You will find it in the specialty section, not with the other chocolate. If for some reason they do not have dark chocolate, the green packaged Equador chocolate is really great too.
Add chocolate to your Pantry List . Plan for one square per day. Seriously… it is therapeutic. Remember, we eat, rotate and restock our supplies so you will get to eat some once you have enough on hand.
