It's a slow news day in Backroads. Hick hasn't been acting up enough to provide tales out of the Storage Unit Store. The Pony has forsaken me for a day with Second-Bestie, who is heading back to her senior year of college. So all I have left is a little gloating section concerning my gluttony.
One of my Christmas gifts from Hick was a humongous box of candy. I mean a behemoth of a box of candy! I've let it sit around, looking forward to ripping the plastic wrap and the lid off it. I told The Pony that we'd get into it when he came down to watch some of the new season of Worst Cooks in America. Sadly, we had three episodes on DVR before The Pony could spare me an evening.
Yes, OF COURSE I was eager for The Pony's company! Not just waiting for a chance to open the candy! The opening of the candy was all gravy! A boatload of gravy. The box hangs over the edge of the couch cushion!
Anyhoo... I didn't get a picture of my candy when we first opened it. I only thought of that the next night, when The Pony did NOT join me. I warned him that I would continue eating my candy, even without his company. Are you ready for the big reveal?
There are some odd reflections there, but you get the gist of it. My favorite piece so far has been the dark chocolate nut caramel. The Pony was trying for a milk chocolate cashew cluster, but got peanut instead. There's a decoder on the BOTTOM OF THE BOX, but not a chart saying which piece is where. Who puts the decoder on the bottom? Russell Stover, I guess! Good thing The Pony didn't flip it over to look!
Yes, I know that American chocolate is horrible. I don't need to be informed. I am not a chocolate snob. These chocolates are a delicacy for ME! I'm a simple Val, you know.
I hope you appreciate the effort it took to bring you this photo. Trying to take the picture on the dark couch made my phone shut down FIVE TIMES! I had to do a forced restart FIVE TIMES! Looks like candy is hazardous to a Samsung's health.
WOW that is a huge box of chocolates. As a chocoholic it wouldn't take me long to get through them!!ReplyDelete
I have to limit myself to 2 pieces per day!Delete
I am such a chocoholic. My daughter lives in Switzerland, so I have been spoiled by their quality. But. it really comes down to is it chocolate? By golly, had me that box.ReplyDelete
Sorry, I cannot spare a square... of chocolate! Only for The Pony, who is an intermittent companion.Delete
That's a LOT of chocolate!. Sadly, in my hot little hands, that box would not have made it to New Year's Eve even. If it was Australian or New Zealand chocolate, that is. I don't care for American.ReplyDelete
MORE SLOP FOR MY TROUGH!Delete
Now that is my kind of heaven!ReplyDelete
Hick finally gave me a gift I can use!Delete
And is there any left? If so, you are a better person than I am.ReplyDelete
Yes, still a lot left. I have not (yet) violated my self-imposed TWO PER NIGHT law.Delete
If only HeWho had given me something to eat for Christmas instead of a dishwasher that I hate more every day.ReplyDelete
On the other hand, you have a gift that keeps on giving, instead of one that attached itself to your hips.Delete
