Fun Friday

Wise words from an unknown author. I am not this wise. I wish I was this wise. I also wish I had chocolate. Oh well. Happy Friday!

If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.
The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.

A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?

If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

Money talks. Chocolate sings.

Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
Because no one wants to quit.
Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

Chocolate is a health food. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived either from sugar beets or cane, both vegetables. And, of course, the milk/cream is dairy. So eat more chocolate to meet the dietary requirements for daily vegetable and dairy intake.


  1. I love it. I just Tweeted "Money talks, chocolate sings." Great line. And all this is so true. Excuse me, I do think I have some chocolate on top of my refrigerator calling to me...

  2. Absolutely! Chocolate has antioxidants too. And I'm pretty sure chocolate calories don't count, as in there are none. It's part of the mysterious magic of cacao. ;)

  3. Elspeth - Oh, what a d-e-e-licious post! I'm going to print this and post it in my kitchen. And regardless of whatever health benefits there are to chocolate, we must remember the all-important mental benefits.

  4. I'm with Margot, I need to print this out. It just proves everything I've been telling my family for years.

    It must be true, the internet said so :-)

  5. One more reason why I heart you.

  6. Maryann; They are wise words, aren't they?

    Laura; I think you're right.

    Carol; Happy Chocolate Weekend to you too!

    Margot; Chocolate is beneficial. Eating it should count towards lowering our insurance rates. Just my opinion.

    Sarah; See how wise you are?

    Elisa; Ahhhh!! :))))

  7. Jan; Keep safe this weekend! Batten down those chickens!

  8. I'm so inspired by your post that I'm going to visit The Chocolate Cafe (Fort Collins, CO) for the first time today.

  9. I mean...visit today for the first time. :)

  10. Pat; And when should I expect the shipment of what you bought for me???

  11. I wonder if I will ever be a successful writer because to tell you the truth, I don´t love chocolate nearly as much as liquorice.

    There, I said it. Throw me out of the club. I am not a genuine writer, just a wanna-be :(

  12. Dorte; And who says *I* love it? Maybe I'm just pandering shamelessly to my demographic. Buahahahaha.


Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
