May I join the Chocolate Club? :p

I add some new translations:
çokollatë - in Albanian
ciocolată - in Romanian

* The translation of the word 'chocolate' will end up soon, so why not thinking of other chocolate bounties?

Norwegian - Sjokolade
Dutch - Chocola (there is another way of writing it as well, can`t remember it though :p)

The dutch word for Chocolate is indeed Chocola or Chocolade
most people say the second one the other is a bit old fashioned or snobbish even though it is the correct one. The one with the "de" at the end is more for use as an adjective for instance "Sjakie en de Chocolade Fabriek" - "Charlie (Chuckie) and the Chocolate Factory"
A little chocolate is Chocolaatje (shokolaecha). Anyway it doesen't really fit dutch phonetics, and some people like to write it as "sjokolade" or "sjocolade" just for the sake of being "creative"
