I want to maximize Stinky's ability to collect coins while I'm not using Plants Vs. Zombies, and that means giving him regular feedings of chocolate. How can I maximize my chocolate harvest while actually playing the game?

I'm using the iOS / iPad version - in case it matters.

AFAIK just play the game. I've found it in both regular levels and puzzle levels, although puzzle levels are faster paced and as a result may increase your chance of getting chocolate. – Sadly Not Jan 15 '13 at 20:05

The PvZ wiki has a bunch of useful info on Chocolate. Here's how you get more chocolate in most (all?) versions of the game:

Occasionally eating a Brain in I, Zombie.
A streak of 3 in I, Zombie Endless.
A streak of 10 in Vasebreaker Endless.
Sometimes after a Grave Buster eats a Grave during a Night level.

(from the wiki)

The puzzle game mode methods seem to be a much more reliable method of earning chocolate (and rare plants) than just killing zombies in the story mode.

I've found that playing the last game in Quick Play for Yard or Pool (the conveyor belt games) nearly always gives me at least one chocolate (sometimes two) and new plants are also not uncommon. This may simply be because towards the end one ends up killing a lot of zombies, but it's also easy. I've nev
