“Las cosas claras y el chocolate espeso” is a Spanish proverb that means ideas should be clear and the chocolate should be thick. It implies that one should be honest and not hesitate in expressing one’s opinion even if it is against the popular sentiment.
The phrase is deeply embedded in the chocolate culture of Spain. While the French prefer a clearer and diluted form of hot chocolate, the Spanish like their drinking chocolate to be thick and heavily laden with cocoa.
