*****This review is in Spanish and English!*****

ESPAÑOL:
Dame Chocolate fue una telenovela de muchísimo éxito que atrajo a un publico enorme a través de los Estados Unidos. Esta historia muy original, escrita por Perla Ferias, se trate una joven Mexicana llamada Rosita Amado (Génesis Rodríguez). Rosita es muy humilde y muy buena, pero la pobre también es increíblemente fea y ingenua. Muy pronto, la vida de la Rosita y su familia cambian cuando Juan Amado (Héctor Suarez), el abuelo de Rosita, muere. Juan tenia una fabrica de chocolates en Miami y al morir, el dejo a su nieta encargada de la receta secreta del chocolate mágico. Rosita y su familia se van a vivir a los Estados Unidos para mantener a la fabrica de Juan, pero para una familia que ha vivido en la pobreza toda su vida - esto es un gran cambio! Desafortunadamente, Juan Amado no era el único dueño de Chocolate Supremo. Grace Remington (Kristina Lilley) y su hijo, Bruce Remington (Carlos Ponce), también son dueños de la fabrica. Y aunque Rosita y Bruce empiezan a sentir sentimientos por cada uno, Grace se siente superior a ellos y esta dispuesta a hacer todo -incluso matar- por conseguir la receta secreta y sacar a los Amados de América. Las cosas se ponen peor cuando Ángel Pérez (Khotan), un malvado hombre de México que Rosita cree ser su amigo, también llega a los Estados Unidos y se alía con Grace. Después de emoción, confusión, y traición, todos dan a Rosita por muerta después de un incidente trágico...pero ella a regresado como Violeta Hurtado.

3.0 out of 5 stars What happened?!?! December 30, 2007
Verified Purchase
At first I thought it was I who was remembering the sequence of the story wrong, but I soon realized that a slew of scenes were left out of the DVD. As a result, the story line is confusing and doesn't flow smoothly. I'm so disappointed as the DVD does absolutely no justice to the original series which I loved. Overall, the series itself is AWESOME, but the DVD hacks it to pieces. In my opinion, nothing should have been edited and the series should have been sold as a whole. Learned a great deal of Spanish, though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Confusing! November 29, 2007
By Gem
I love the story line as it was presented on TV, so I bought the DVD. The person(s) that edited this on to DVD should be fired. I realize they had to shorted the story but the cut out too many important scenes. The acting is great, the story was great and it does improve your spanish, but it was reduced in quality by the awful editing. They completely missed the overall story.
Me encanto la novela cuando la vie por tele, y lo compre. Las personas que cortaron la novela la convertiron en un disastre!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable novela December 12, 2008
I have just watched Dame Chocolate on DVD. I have never seen this telenovela when it aired on television but I was able to follow the story with no problem at all. I do however respect the other reviewers opinion that the DVD is not as good as the unabridged TV version which they enjoyed in its entirety. So my advice is: if you have never seen Dame Chocolate then buy this DVD. If you have seen the show on television then don't buy it, as by all accounts you will be disappointed with the editing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dame Chocolate February 8, 2008
I really enjoyed watching the DVD's. The only complaint that I have is that too much was edited out. I would have liked to have seen more of the story with Rudy and more detail of the ending (ie: Mauricio/Hortencia, Rudy, etc.) I would have been willing to spend a little more to get more detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best show I have ever seen. October 8, 2007
This Mexican telenovela is absolutly fantastic. I have never been as completely addicted to a show as I have been to Dame Chocolate. It greatly improved my Spanish watching it as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yup
Two words: Carlos Ponce. The story is good too but I wish it had another female lead because the one it has is not a very good actress.
