Oh Baby!

Forget Love...I'd rather fall in Chocolate!

John and I were at Dan's Saturday Night about 11 pm (just hours before Easter) and trying to find some treats for his Sunday School class. We soon found out that all the bags of chocolate and Easter candy had been marked down to $1 per bag and my precious Cadbury Creme Eggs were only 25 CENTS!!! After checking out, I went to get the car and John went back for more. I was more than a little surprised when John returned with 25 Cadbury Eggs... so we ended up with 30 Eggs for only $6.25...SCORE!!! We are going to freeze the rest of the chocolate. I don't want to be in a disaster WITHOUT any chocolate! Can you imagine what some women would pay for some chocolate... but what could be better than chocolate at a time like that???? What would I trade my chocolate away for??? Yes, I consider Chocolate a part of my food storage!

Here's an interesting article about Chocolate that asks the question, "Is Chocolate Physiologically or Psychologically Addictive? (I believe both and believe I eat more than the 11.5 pounds eaten annually by the average American)

This is also a fun article, Women and Chocolate: Simply Made For Each Other. An excerpt from The Times in 2004: "You can bet that when the first Aztec tentatively crushed a cacao bean, right behind him was an ad executive excitedly branding the muddy brown discovery “the food of the gods”. Or if there wasn’t, there certainly should have been — because chocolate hasn’t looked back since. Mars’s new “Mars Delight”, expected out this spring, is just the latest attempt to beguile us into seeing that a mixture of hydrogenated fat, sugar and theobromine (a type of caffeine) is an essential part of our life."

yummmm.... they have Mars Delights in England and they are my very favorite candy ever. It is like a gourmet/ high class kitkat. The wafer is more delicate and airy, while the chocolate is creamy and always on the the boarderline of being melty. They are fantastic!

I thought Haley loved Cadbury Eggs as much as anyone, but you have her beat, hands down! I know where to go during a natural disaster! That's my kind of food storage!

I don't know about that Andrea! To hear Haley talk about hiding them from her companion and eating them while she was in the shower sounds like a pretty serious addiction to me!...a rather good addiction, by the way! Parker picked you out real fast during GC..."Hey, There's Andrea!"... you are a celebrity in our home!
