    I've tried several chocolate milkshake and malt recipes and truthfully none of them are doing much for me. Honestly, the best one I tried is my own. It's actually not too bad but I certainly wouldn't put it in the great category. Keep in mind, I'm looking for that grand slam chocolate recipe so my standards are very high. Perhaps others with less chocolate snobbery than I would like my recipe.


    Chocolate Malt

    Milk Chocolate (TFA) 6.0%
    Double Chocolate Clear (TFA) 3.0%
    Malted Milk (TFA) 3.0%
    Milk Chocolate (FLV) 0.5%
    Vanilla Swirl (TFA) 0.5%
    Sweetener (TFA) 0.25%

    As with all these chocolate recipes I have trouble getting much strength out of them. The few that are strong have less-than-desireable aftertaste to them. The worst is FLV's Milk Chocolate. It's a very strong flavor but it has a soapy taste to it. That's why it is limited to 0.5% in this recipe. Any more and it takes away from the recipe instead of adding to it.

    A wiped out economy is worse for our health than what this virus can do.

    Ain't that the truth. Folks really should wake up and see what's happening. Personally I agree with my States motto. "Live free or die".

    I quit watching news in 2008. But I am living it. Just scary. Working from home is nice, though limited. Skype conference call in a few minutes. Work goes on. We have enough supplies for at least a month, but we'll have to get out there when we run out. :blink:

    You should be tested for the virus. Take care. Fingers crossed for you.

    I stocked early for both us and my parents. Between us we have tons. I go back to work supposedly in two weeks so I'll get out there anyway. But we have plenty for now and I'm not worried about it. But I'm not opposed to mail delivery. If you can find stuff in stock. Crazy world right now.

    Maybe be worth it to check diyflavorshack and/ or diyshop i linked a while back. Both lady owners who are most helpful and have had their own versions created by them or for them by flavor companies.. Just a thought.

    Amazon is looking to add some 100,000 employees to meet the increased demand.

    amazon now has estimated delivery times for oos items. They encourage pre-ordering to be sure to get it. Who knows if its worth that or not but is something to consider.

    Yeah, I have that in my back pocket. I'm holding out hope that my DIY chocolate NET extracts will get me closer to what I'm looking for. Trying not to get too jazzed about it but I liked what I whiffed. I have five more weeks before I can begin filtering it. The companies who make tobacco casings seem to be better at flavorings than what I have seen from us DIYers. Not sure how they do it except they probably dedicate far more resources to getting flavors right than we do. They've been at it for decades and some more than a century.

    I have not the fever just started last night. I'll see what my doctor says, but I don't think I'll be leaving the house today. Pray for Mrs. Skeebo, I can be...... well, a man when I get sick. I did find a box of expired Theraflu in the medicine chest.

    I don't think it's that serious.

    My wife got the flu about a month ago. She said last night that she was glad she got it when she did or she'd be worried she had the virus. She had really bad body aches with it. I'm sure it didn't help that she has fibro.

    I'm sure that didn't help her at all. Hopefully, she won't get anything else.

    I noticed that on amazon. We have more than most. I think I went to Walmart 6 times, grocery store 4 times, CVS 3 times, just in the last week. I have so much food in the freezer I had to relegate a box of nic to the refrigerator from the freezer. :shock: It'll be fine. :) TP and a hoard of food that wouldn't fit in the pantry I stored in the basement. Same with my parents. We are loaded for now. I even got dry milk. I'm not worried at all. A little exhausted from trying to think of staples for everyone and doing all the shopping, but not worried. I actually like having everything we will need for a long long time. After this virus, I'm changing my shopping ways. I will be making a monthly meal plan and buying everything we will need for at least a month. Normally I'm going to the store about every 2 or 3 days. Gets old. I'm loving it. I am having to keep my son away from the pantry though...like a human food vacuum cleaner. o_O

    Really regretting leaving my wife and pup behind.. but she is far and wide better equipped and setup than I am. I'm here in MI without a vehicle, which really blows. Don't have any family or friends in my town.
