I've walked away from so much chocolate in the last month it is simply astonishing! It's hard to believe, but if I carry on like this it might even rival that one year in college where I decided not to eat chocolate for the whole year. Of course, I didn't count the one malt ball I would have while I cleaned the bottom of Forrest Hall every week day afternoon. I don't even like malt balls so that tells you how desperate I was for chocolate.
Anyway, here are some things I've walked away from.
Hershey's Dark Chocolate + Pretzels = Good Idea
I put them down and walked away.
But that was trumped when I passed this version in the next aisle.
Is there anything about this that doesn't seem like a good idea? Well, I walked away anyway!
Okay, technically it took me a little while to let go but then I saw these.
Hello! Where have you been all my life Dark Chocolate Raspberry M&Ms?
Hey, I even put these down and walked away. Where is this self-control coming from?
I know some of you are thinking, "That took some real self-control, Beth!" And you are right! I had this overwhelming urge to buy one, wrap it up and spend big bucks to send it to a friend in Niger just so they could open it up, roll their eyes and have a good laugh as they opened the fridge door and placed it's melted blob of chocolatey goodness next to their perfectly pyramid shaped Niger bought Toblerone. Now, wouldn't that be funny?
