    countable/uncountable

    Please help!

    Is this sentence correct?

    It's sticky. It's a chocolate.
    or
    It's sticky. It's chocolate.

    Do we write 'a' before chocolate?

    thanks!
    Rita

    It depends on context. If you have a box of chocolates, they are countable. If you have a slab of chocolate, "chocolate" is uncountable.
