Chewy goodness. The rest are just for fluff. chiefdishwasher 7 years One after another. celebrity_soup 7 years look at the chocolate guide! chiefdishwasher 7 years Party, I bet your mom taught you how to pick chocalates. atlbartender 7 years I use the guide and give all the ones I do not like to my husband then I start from my least favorite and save the best for last. susanec 7 years We go to the shop and pick them out. Always the rum balls and things with hazelnut filling. One of these days we'll get caramel... rickimc 7 years Since I am allergic to peanuts, first I check the ingredients to see if I can even have the chocolates. If I can, I check the guide and start with the one I like least saving the one I like best for last (eat one piece a day). GrapeBubbleGum 7 years I look at the guide, but instead of starting with one I know I'll like, I start with my least favorite and save my favorites for last. silly_pickle 7 years I go for the guide, then cut it open to double check. I have a peanut allergy, I'm paranoid! sophia_HL 7 years I look at the guide and check for coconut ... YUM!! ilanac13 7 years if it doesn't have a map - then i won't eat it. i'm one of those people who's scared of the unknown jennjennnbubba 7 years Im with you party, I rarely use the guide b/c most the time I don't even have a guide. I just pick at random and hope its yummy partysugar 7 years Sometimes there isn't a guide. So in those cases I just blindly choose and I hope its a good one. Marci 7 years Juju, I wonder if we're related because I have a sister-in-law who does the same thing with a box of candy. I do a combination of things with a box of candy. First I peruse the box and try to find the chocolate covered coconut before anyone else does. Then I scope out the marshmallow ones, and I'm very successful with finding these two favorites. After that mission is accomplished, then I check the guide and/or sit with my fiance and check out each piece he takes a bite of. If it's something I like, then I take it from him. :D arcticpuppet 7 years godiva guides are always so thorough. I am in love with their truffles!!! UrbanBohemian 7 years If there's a guide, I'll peruse that. But I like taking a cue from Forrest Gump and.....well you know the quote :-) amber_castaldo 7 years I am a chocolate fan. I tend to just eat blindly. it helps me to take small bites and savor the flavor. juju4 7 years Anything that is in a box of chocolates is good enough for me. :-) My sister in law will bite half of a chocolate and put it back in the box....and it drives me insane! IMO, if you bite into it, just finish it. It's a fricking chocolate! tkoblondee 7 years The Guide!!! Merlin713 7 years I go to the guide first. After a while I don't look at it, and I randomly try them. If I don't like what I bite into, I give it to my boyfriend. He'll eat anything. ElizabethRae 7 years I hate it when there is no guide!!! I end up biting into nasty raspberry fillings and stuff (though I usually inspect pretty closely before I bite). I'm with the gals who go for the caramel first! dootsie 7 years I only get boxes of chocolate with stuff I know I like in them, so I don't mind going blind. It's a nice surprise every time. If I happen to get a box from someone who doesn't know how picky I am, I'm still apt to just eat whatever I pick up, though I might make a face at first if I get the pink cream! StarbucksAddict9 7 years I go for the guide if it has one and then I still check it before I eat it. I have too many food allergies to be biting into a surprise! Phasekitty 7 years Let me add one to this poll: I blindly pick one and push the bottom in to see if it's something I'll like! If not, I give it to my boyfriend! :-P Maybe I get ghetto chocolate boxes, but those guides don't always come with it! Linda-McP 7 years Look at the guide and go for the dark chocolate ones first.
