[pct-l] Chocolate in desert?

There used to be something on the market called, Tropical Chocolate. 
it was originally made for military use. It won't fool you for a 
high quality chocolate. Personally it reminded me of the chocolate 
description in the book "1984". If that's not available, there are 
some recipes for that kind of thing out on the web. 

When I did the PCT in 2007 I avoided chocolate bars until I went to 
higher, cooler altitudes. Since I was eating pop-tarts in the 
morning (often chocolate) it gave me a bit of chocolate fix. They 
would melt (in the foil) during the day but I ate them in the 
morning so they had a chance to solidify a bit.

If you do go for normal chocolate expect a meltdown, and have a 
spoon or something ready to scrape it off the wrapper.

It was then I knew I'd had enough,
