hell i have to try this
i dont know camel milk and i cant imaginate the taste of camel milk chocolate
to me this sounds scary

but i would like to give it a try
is is addictive?
is it good?

i dont wanna offend someone but to me it sounds like kosher food lol

is there someone who produce chocolate with goat milk? ... would sound similar scary to me

i know one who have a problem with cow milk he allways takes his own goat milk in a bottle to work for his coffee
i cant stand this milk but i like goat cheese

is there also existing camel milk cheese?

hell this kind of news are confusing me

i wanna try this food
i cant wait to see it in a shop
i maybe would laugh my azz of ... but i am strongly willing to try it

I never tried goat chocolates. When I was a kid in the southern U.S., I had a friend who had some goats as pets. They were a lot of fun and sweet. Never thought of their milk, but it must be different than a cows milk in ways because they are smaller. I'd be interested in a chocolate taste.

I never had camel chocolates either. That is a really foreign idea to me. They are spitting animals? I've always heard that. Yuk. I've ridden horses many times, but never a camel so a new idea to me. Horses are beautiful and fast, but camels are durable I guess. Milking either is an odd idea to me.

Indeed it's a new type of chocolate I heard of. I think it bwill bring on a new taste in chocolate industry. As it is health consous, I think this chocolate has a great future in the world.

I can see rows and rows, tens of thousands, of camels now hooked up to milking machines across a country to pump out the many thousands of milk needed a day, or millions. No one thinks about it with cows, but it would be a sight with camels!

Don't hold your breath. I've read that camels are mean animals, and we don't have patience for mean animals. It won't happen.

Dennis – Maybe you are an inventor working on camel milking machines? If it's really healthier, might be a good thing! I can't drink goat's milk, too sour tasting to me, but in chocolates might work.
