Too much chocolate...


My colleague went to that well-known Swedish furniture shop the other day, I'm sure you know the one I mean; famous for its flat packs and self assembly and even more famous (or is that infamous) for its useless instructions. In any case she surprised me by bringing back a giant slab of marabou chocolate (the best chocolate in the world if you ask me).

My mother once told me that it's better to eat lots of chocolate in one go than to spread it out over the day, as long as you brush your teeth afterwards... I'm not sure whether she said that because she, like me, has zero will-power or what, but I followed her advice nevertheless and stuffed myself. (And then, like a good girl, I brushed my teeth...)

EVERYTHING in the food section of that "well-known Swedish furniture shop" is so delicious! I no longer live near one though :(

That really is good chocolate, I usually don't even make it a mile from the store before the whole thing is gone.

You look so gleeful - does brushing your teeth make you that happy?

Maybe because I don't have much self control when it comes to chocolate ;)

Did you have the plain Marabou?
Now they come with bits of Daim, digestive biscuits and orange and crispy bits, and I cannot decide which one is my favourite.
I love them all!
