    Well, it is kinda relieving to behave as a 8-year old sometimes, especially when one coaches 3 baseball teams of them.

    I said it. Over here in the USA the marketers don't get all fancy with the region. They just say Dutch Chocolate. So were left dumb about the specifics.

    Dutch import good 'chocolate'. Then they smoke it.

    Anyway, I asked our old friend the Duck of Alba, and he said:

    Wooden shoes are generally called "clogs" in North America, but the clogs aren't the same as klompen.

    They may not do good chocolate, but they do damn good cocoa and cheese. Is Van Houten company still around? It was a taste of my childhood...

    Clogs can be any shoe that is solid fitting (no ties, no laces, no straps, buckles, tongues or all that) Aren't Swedes usually stereotyped as having silly gargantuan wooden clogs?

    Wiz, I defend my right as an American to put ketchup on my frites, damnit!

    wel "van Houten" is a pretty common last name. there might very be a plumming "van Houten" a "van Houten" woodshop, metalshop, cofeeshop, etc.
    our main chocolat brand here in Holland is "verkade" wich amkes cookies and chocolat.

    not sure what you eman by cocao? hot chocolat milk? chocolat milk? dunno...

    Gah, I'm really confused at this one...See, I don't know if I'm Dutch or not...See, I have a Dutch last name "Van Ness" but, its only because my Grandpa was adopted by a Dutchman...He was actually a Russian Jew.

    So, I don't have Dutch blood but technically I have a Dutch family line...Can any of the resident Dutchmen proclain whether this qualifies me as Dutch or not?

    Cocoa is, well... cocoa. Or cacao. A drink. Brown powder you add to milk. Not chocolate. The brand I've been drinking as a kid was always Van Houten.

    Hah! You got all americanized, and don't know the good stuff of your own country :)
    Found their website: http://www.vanhoutendrinks.com/
    It's a "bit" higher quality than Nesquik :) And yes, that was in the early 80's. We used to get it in foreign aid parcels while suffering under communist yoke... I guess we weren't that bad off :D
