Rather than hijack this thread: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=786486 I thought I would start a new one. I have a close friend who knows I like chocolate. I made chocolate truffles regularly. I use pretty high quality semi-sweet dark chocolate with at least 60% cocoa solids. I have a close friend who gives me every year a kg bar of chocolate. Overly sweet milk chocolate, Hershey’s I think. I assume it is at most 30% cocoa solids. I tried to incorporate it into the truffles the first time he did it, but the were distinctly inferior and I refuse to do it again. The second time, my wife found a friend who claimed to like milk chocolate and we regifted it. I don’t know what I am going to do the third time.
Is there any kind way of telling him that I don’t appreciate the gift?
