Good thing I am not a chocolate lover (except the dark variety); I have a feeling these grubs only go after sweet chocs:) Once I was given a small bar and I put it aside, forgot all about it, and when I found it weeks later it did have maggots:(( Hugs // paul

There is a cheese in Italy that has live maggots in it. It is a delicacy, but they don't let you have it here. If you don't chew it completely, they survive and start eating you! Now that I've let you know about that, can I say how clever you are!! Be careful what you eat!!
