Rep. Nancy Pelosi really loves chocolate, a fact she shared with the Huffington Post’s Jennifer Bendery. Pelosi discussed her chocolate addiction at length, even though one of her aides tried to interrupt the interview.

“I don’t know what it is. But some call it dedication, some call it an addiction, others call it an affliction,” Pelosi said, talking about her obsession with chocolate candy, dark chocolate bars, chocolate truffles,  and chocolate cake.
