Model Answer 1:

Well, chocolates are my all-time favorite, and I like almost every type of chocolate.

What it was?
But here I would like to talk about a time when I didn’t like the chocolate at all that I had. 

When you tasted it?
Actually, my uncle lives in the US and was visiting us, and during this time, he brought me a huge box of chocolate wrapped in silver. As soon as he left, I got super excited to open the box and to eat the American chocolates that I was yearning for. 

Why didn’t you like chocolate?
However, my excitement turned into disappointment as the chocolates were China-made as the box had Chinese all over it, and at this point, I realized my uncle had purchased this chocolate box from a two-dollar Chinese shop rather than from a chocolate boutique in America. 

How it tasted like? And explain why you didn’t like it?
When I unwrapped the chocolate, I got furious as it was a white Chocolate, the only type of chocolate I do not like as it really doesn’t taste like chocolate at all.

When I had a bite, there were no nuts as shown on the label, which was quite unacceptable. To make the taste worst, there were orange jellies that had nothing to do with chocolate. 

Since I could not withstand the taste of the chocolate anymore, I decided to gift it to my friends, but you won’t believe my friends too didn’t like the taste of the chocolates at all, and the chocolate ended up in the dustbin, and infact my friend’s also made fun of me when they got to know that these were American chocolates gifted by my uncle.

Overall, it was the time I had chocolate that I didn’t like at all.
