OK, I had the same reactions you did--don't be using my chocolate and what do you mean waste chocolate!

But it really is cool just how much they're finding they can use for fuel.

Don Mills Diva

I saw that story and I too was like "sounds like a waste of precious chocolate to me" but I agree it is amazing.

Multi-tasking Mommy

WOW! That's pretty cool.


Well technically I believe our trip was partially powered by truffles and smarties (and brownies and...).

metro mama

That's pretty damned cool.

You're making me nostalgic.

Mac and Cheese

Big Turk or Eatemore bars would be the best fuel. There isn't much other use for those particular brands.


I disagree - I like Eatmore and Big Turk. Let's use up the extraneous Mounds & Almond Joy of the world.

Rosebud & Papoosie Girl

One for me and one for the tank, one for me and one for the tank. Yeah that might work!

My Mom's husbands nephews run all their cars on biodiesel so I have seen first hand how cool this is, however any form of chocolate should be revered I say.


Sigh. I miss you ladies.

And when I was little and would pretend to drive my parents' car, I ALWAYS drove to Timbuktu. It just sounds fun, doesn't it?


Waste chocolate? How do I get the contract to haul away the waste chocolate? I'll undercut any other bidder...


I really want to know what's happening to the waste chocolate now. Like, are there big landfills of chocolate? And how do I apply for employment there?


No kidding. It seems SOMEthing could be made by the car companies. At least! But too bad this one didn't smell like a Hershey bar when it ran!


lisa b

no chocolate is waste chocolate.
but still that is cool.

Lady M

Now I'm hungry.

Lady M

I should have added that it doesn't take a lot to make me hungry these days though.


Sign me up!


I'm afraid there'd be some late nights that you would find me in the garage siphoning the chocolate out of the car. Someone has got to confirm that it really doesn't taste the same.


Hemp power, baby! Hemp could save the world! (in other words, hands OFF the chocolate, fellas)

And thank you so much for putting up our Green Mom Finds button!


Sadly, I can easily imagine myself licking the gas cap...


There's waste in making chocolate? Can't. Wrap. My. Brain. Around. That.

Wonder if there'd be a taste difference between "leaded" and "unleaded". Maybe leaded would mean "with nuts."


Go see my blog. I gave you something. ;)



When I was working at the chocolate factory they had a mishap. While they were switching from their regular milk chocolate to dark chocolate they accidentally used a batch with nuts in it. The whole system had to be purged and sterilized to prevent any possible allergic reactions to their customers. This meant that a huge amount of chocolate had to be thrown out. I mean you could have easily built yourself a Pyramid or the Great Wall of chocolate there was so much. (or drive to the real one)

On a more serious note I do drive a VW TDI and saw an interesting product that would allow you to burn regular cooking oil for fuel. Greasecar.com sells conversion kits for about $1000.00 but allows you to keep your original diesel system for convenience. The duel fuel option is a great idea and allows you make the most of a waste product.

Her Bad Mother

Totally same reaction you had: WASTE OF CHOCOLATE. Give me enough chocolate and I could travel pretty far, too. With less emissions.

Bobby - Gourmet Chocolate

Move over Avon. The Chocoholics are taking over! If you're a REAL Chocolate Lover, you will appreciate this home based business opportunity. MXI Xocai has created a new healthy chocolate home base business opportunity. Thier product line consists of REAL high antioxidant healthy chocolate products which they market through home based distributors via "Chocolate Home Parties". Now, before you start thinking about the Hershey Dark Bar or the Dove Dark Bar, here's the difference.

Raw unprocessed chocolate is extremely rich in antioxidant value. Antioxidants are sensitive to heat which means that the traditional "heat based" processes that companies such as Hershey, Nestle, and Dove use destroy virtually ALL of the antioxidant value of their chocolate products. MXI Xocai partnered with a Belgian gourmet chocolate company and created a new patented "cold based" process which allows them to produce their chocolate products without harming the antioxidant value. They also use the Acai Berry, which is also extremely high in antioxidant value. They use agave nectar to sweeten their products. Agave nectar is a low glycemic natural sweetener. All of their products are tested and certified by Brunswick labs as to their posted antioxidant value. Home base distributors hold "chocolate parties" where they introduce others to try the chocolate and vite them to join the business or as Xocai calls it: "the healthy chocolate revolution". The company is just over 5 years old and has about 100k distributors in USA, Canada, Japan, Puerto Rico, New Zealand, Cook Islands, and Australia. They are slated to open un in the United Kingdom in January, 2009. This is the "perfect home business opportunity for anyone who has a passion for chocolate!

Speaking of chocolate activism... I TOOK REAL ACTION. by busting prices, and saving fellow chocolate addicts wallets!

Well, i'm an unashamed chocoholic. Have been for quite a while.

But good chocolate costs a lot, does it not? Not necessarily!

So one night, i began pondering-
what if i didn't have to pay extortionate prices for the chocolates I loved.
Moreove, what could i do to change things though?

Chocolate lovers shouldn't have to find it expensive to service their habit.

So I sourced some nice, quality tasty chocolates of brands that I adored like Kras, dorina, and mauxion to name a few, and created an online store-


I also carry many gourmet products

http://discountchocolate.com.au is a tasmanian, hobart based chocolate and gourmet ethnic or goods store or deli that

doesn't charge high prices for imported european chocolates, sweets, condiments, wafers, spices biscuits, syrups and other scrummy delicacies.

Ideal christmas, easter or birthday gifts, at budget, always low prices, up to 50% off normal prices.


I can relate the story about wasting the chocolates?


well,chocolates prices are depend on the quality of chocolates we buy.
