Heaven Or Torture?

Where in the WORLD was I even supposed to start in a place like this?!  Chocolaty heavenly loveliness was right before my eyes.   Well, you know how I usually roll—this is where my rule of thumb usually comes into play.

The hard part is reigning yourself back in from buying too many because—let’s face it—this is one of those stores where they price the chocolates as if they’re pure gold.  So the torture starts to kick in because you can’t really afford to get them all like you really want to.

And could it be more uncomfortable and torturous than when I had to ask for the chocolates by name?!  “Yeah, give me a Loco-Moco-Choco and a Choco-Rock and two Cocoa-My-Chocos, a Java High Mountain Toffee, a Milk Lover, a Mocha Radiance Blitz Bar, and a Luscious Caramello Butterscotch Marble Swirl Sensation.”  Are you kidding me??

So, if you have nothing else to do today, love on some chocolate goodness and let some chocolate goodness love on you.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Giant dark sunglasses can always help if you want to remain a tad inconspicuous while choosing and saying your chocolate names out loud in a public forum.

  1. Chocolate is big here in Southern Oregon– there are some great local chocolate makers and an annual chocolate festival. This is also the home of Harry and Davids. The only thing that saves this household is the cost… LOL –Curt

  2. Those names sound like characters in a Dr. Seuss story. Lol. My wife is a fiend for chocolates, so I think she can understand exactly how you felt inside this place. Your story reminds me of the time, I hadn’t eaten bread in about a year. We were staying at the Midas Hotel…by the way, if you ever visit the Philippines, please stay at the location in Pasay and book the Executive suit. Beautiful rooms.

    Nonetheless, she took me downstairs to breakfast and I had my egg whites, collection of diced fruits and water. She said I should try their bread. I was hesitant, but followed her to the section. I think my eyes and stomach experienced ecstasy at the same time. I did not even know where to begin. So, I took one or two of EVERYTHING. I savored each bite as if it were my last. Lol. She and the other family members took photos, because they never witnessed such a food assault by me before.

    1. Oh, that’s so funny! Glad you enjoyed yourself with the bread. Just take one of each, that’s how I roll. 🙂

  3. Oh, I just put on half a stone just reading this post… thanks a lot. hahaha! Seriously, they look awesome. I am a major dark choccy fan. But I’ll never say no to milk chocolate…

  4. Omg, throw me into that briar patch, please! I miss chocolate so bad, it’s a painful thing! Looks awesome, eat a plateful for me next time! ♥♥♥ ;^)

  5. Have you had chocolate covered dried fruit? Delicious. It’s been my chocolate fix of late, chocolate and raisins, cranberries, chia I think, all sorts of dried fruit in this large Costco bag.

    1. No, I don’t think I have. I’ve had the chocolate strawberries before but not dried fruit. I’ll have to give it a try.
