About Me

The Story

Hi, and welcome to Chocolate-Candy-Intelligence.com!

If you're here to find out about me, you've come to the right place.

I'm Charles Walker, and I hope you'll find everything chocolate candy related here that you could ever want.

Now, you may be wondering who I am, and how I came to create a website about chocolate candy.

Okay, here goes:

First, I spent too many years keeping track of debits and credits.  That's right, I'm a retired CPA.  If you're from across the pond, that's rather like a Chartered Accountant.

So, from accounting to chocolate.  Say what?

Well, of course, I've loved chocolate since before I can remember.  Just like you (or you wouldn't be reading this).

Then I retired.  Somehow I always had this picture in my mind of retirement consisting of enjoying "just relaxing."  


Well, so we took a big trip (Scotland, Norway and Iceland), then a couple of little trips.  Another month or so and I was bored silly.  Still, I was supposed to be retired, why would I want to start looking for a real job?

Sooo, I started looking around the internet for something interesting to do.  Right.  You may have noticed that most of the "do something on the internet" promos are designed more to separate you from a chunk of the money you already have rather than to be a vehicle to do something interesting and perhaps pick up a few bucks on the side.

Hmm, again.

Eventually a ran across a credible-looking Canadian outfit* that offers a complete package of website-building tools and better yet, extensive instruction on how to apply them to create a home-based web business.  

At less than $30 a month, I figured even if all it did was give me something interesting to do and stop me surfing the con artists, I'd be ahead of the game.

The first thing they asked me to do was decide what I wanted my future website to be About.  


I'll admit, a couple of the ideas I considered were accounting-related.  I know - just call me a recovering accountant.

But once the idea of chocolate candy came to mind, my indecision was all over.  Well, almost.  

Despite my forever love of chocolate, I had another misimpression in my mind.  Specifically, that chocolate candy was not particularly good for you.  Build my website around something unhealthy?  No, thanks - not me.  

However, in the process of searching for my perfect website idea, I discovered that chocolate actually does have significant health benefits (you can find out more on my chocolate health page).

So, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  My aim here is to provide you with more of the best information about chocolate candy and what goes into it than you will ever have time to surf through.  

So that you can Find Your Perfect Chocolate Candy.

But enough about me.  What would you like to see on this site?  Please let me know via my contact page and I'll do my best to find it for you.

Whether you are looking for a favorite chocolate from the past, your perfect new chocolate for today, information on chocolate and health, or anything else related to  chocolate candy, this is the place!
