The 'We LOVE chocolate' thread

Prev13456721
Alright then... it is nice to see that other people like chocolate as much as I seem to do so rather than derail another thread, we shall have our own...

Hi, my names Dave and I'm a chocoholic, I eat at least one bar every day, and I like to try all sorts of chocolaty things...

I don't smoke and rarely drink, so I guess this is my vice...

So all you chocolate lovers out there, let's talk chocolate....

And of course we can't have this thread without this...

You just had to look didn't ya!...

  • I love chocolate too but am not a chocoholic. My fave chocolates are Mars Aero whisper and snickers
  • My names Anna and I'm a chocoholic. It's been 7 minutes since my last piece (cadbury peppermint dairy milk).
    I gave up all chocolate last year - it was a miserable year indeed :( (although my a5s would probably disagree).

    I don't smoke (gave up a few years back), I drink occasionally, I do have other vices - but we won't go there >:)

    I'm also gifted at derailing topics... maybe the lure of chocolate will keep me on the straight and narrow here?

    Welcome to you both... I'm sure others will arrive soon when they wake up :)

    @pepsimax1984 .. Some nice choices there, I used to like Orange Aeros the best, sadly a lot of my favourite bars don't get produced anymore, Fuse, Spira, Maverick.... all fantastic, no longer made...

    @rosesgirlnz I'm jealous, it's been a while since ....oh wait.. I've just finished a Jaffa Cake bar, so that counts..

    As for this

  • This is what I just had a row (or two) of @Dougie_Powers_17

    And this really is my "vege bin" in the fridge :D

    I used to hide the treats up high, but then my kids started to get taller than me.. so that didn't work. And then I started hiding them in the vege drawer, because I figured the kids wouldn't bother looking there. That secret is well over, but it's become a family habit that our vege drawer is really a chocolate drawer.

    I've just been looking on the Cadburys NZ website and I'm so jealous, you have such a better range than us, that mint bar looks awesome and I see things like Dairy Milk Black Forest... that looks delicious...

    As for Salad/Vegetable drawers..... I don't think I've ever had any in mine... at least now I live on my own it's pretty much safe, unless my youngest comes in and decides to pinch something

    Here's mine at the moment...

    20171015_135617.jpg

    There's a big box of Malteasers at the bottom ready for my week off, it's a little lighter than usual too, not got double deckers, mars bars, galaxy bars and ripples in it, plus there's some Green and Blacks in the cupboard which my eldest bought me for Fathers Day... I need to go shopping...

  • Oh Wow! I have vege drawer envy @dougie_really_really_loves_chocolate_17 :o

    All of my kids raid mine - well technically anything that goes in the drawer is fair game. If I want to hide something properly, I hide it somewhere else. Like the plastic container cupboard. My daughter is away at Uni, and the first thing she does when she comes here is checks out what chocolate there is.

    I also love lindt balls. They are my favorite ever.

    I've actually trimmed it down a lot the last year or so, I had a cupboard full of chocolate as well, Chocolate oranges, toffee crisps, the other stuff I mentioned earlier, lots of different things, but it got to a point where I was buying things and still eating them along with Easter stuff the next Christmas, I remember a couple of years ago nipping into a local petrol station and spending over £10 on chocolate just after Christmas and when you bear in mind a lot of it was seasonal stock at between 50% and 70% off, you can imagine how much I ended up with...

    I'll dig out some old pictures I took at the time... I always have back-ups somewhere..

    and that's actually a couple of Malteaster Bunnies....


    EDIT:..

    Here's the picture... it was 29th December 2015, I remember finishing off the last of the Christmas tree bars on the left last Christmas... and all that with other stuff I bought plus Easter stuff made me realise I was buying too much and even one bar a day wasn't getting me through it all, so have been trimming down since....

    I thought I loved chocolate, but looking at this thread I realize I probably only like it.

    Anyway I wasn't supposed to be buying any after last Christmas, but then a supermarket was clearing out selection boxes for 50p, which when you consider what was in them, was quite the bargain...
    selection1.jpg

    Add to that a few Christmas tubes at half price and six chocolate oranges I'd bought before Christmas as they were on a really good special offer, it was fair to say I'd failed in my 'not buying any this year'

    At least I managed to get through Easter pretty much alright and only got those Malteaster Bunnies last week from a bargain shop that are selling them cheap as they're going out of date...

    But as far as I've known, chocolate never goes out of date... A guy at the factory told me the only put one on because they have to and it's usually for a year... so anything made today would have a best before date of 14th Oct 2018, I've had chocolate up to six months out of date and it's been perfectly fine....

    Who's idea was this thread... you've got me going now... I need to shut up and let others speak... :joy:
