Neither Lolly, Adam or I have been to a wedding that has proffered a sweetie buffet.
We’re aware of the whispers about how they are so popular they may be perceived as “overdone” (we choose to of course ignore these whispers – you can read my post on the very subject here) so if they are indeed in such abundance then why haven’t we experienced the W-day pic ‘n’ mix wonders?
And um…why have I never seen a chocolate buffet?
THAT would be immense.
And as it’s Friday and sometimes you just need to have a wee break from all things “I do” we thought we’d share our favourite treats and invite you lovely lot to do the same.
My Top Three
This may seem incredibly boring but my no.1 chocolate indulgence is in fact a good old kitkat.
I like the crunchy texture and the fact you can dip it in tea because it is kind of a biscuit (I’m not the only one who does this right?)
I also like to have a few sticks and then save some for later – prolong the pleasure as it were.
They also work well as a statement earring.
A more recent obsession are Milky Way Magic Stars. If I don’t have at least one packet a week I get weird withdrawal symptoms. I also don’t do sharing, so if you see me with a bag don’t expect to get offered any.
Last but not least is a retro number, the Nestle “Crunch”. It’s not a particularly aesthetically pleasing piece of confectionary but then appearances can be deceptive. So if you should happen to see one next time you are browsing your local newsagents, perhaps give it a whirl, you might just like it. A lot.
I am a cliché.
Yes someone had to choose the chocolate inspired weekday bar and it happened to be me.
The good ol’ Crunchie is my TOP treat.
I’m not entirely sure if this top ranking is due to the honeycomb melt-in-the-mouth goodness or if it’s because Crunchies don’t make me feel completely guilty as I indulge because it’s not ALL chocolate you know. Either way I love them and could quite happily sit there chomping away until I was sick.
Anyone else agree?
As a child, did you ever clutch the bottom of your packet of crisps really tightly when you offered the bag around to your friends making it practically impossible for them to get anything more than about a third of a single crisp?
That’s me with Minstrels.
Like Charlotte with her Magic Stars I don’t willingly share these perfect discs of chocolate heaven. Honestly have you seen how many you get in a bag these days…hardly any. So I’m not going to start dishing out the equivalent of confectionery gold to those who won’t appreciate it as much as I do.
Which brings me to number three….Terry’s Chocolate Orange.
Folks, I’m aware that a pattern seems to be developing here.
It’s not Terry’s, or Jimbob’s or Harry’s or anyone else for that matter. It’s mine…all mine. Hence the photo of me looking like a bloated hamster near the bottom there. Thanks Adam – I think I specifically told you not to put that one in.
Anyway, I do love an orange inspired treat. It makes me feel all decadent and exotic. And that can only be a good thing.
…ok… Milka is not exactly a mansnack especially if you eat it whilst indulging in a lovely bubble bath surrounded by candles listening to the Bridget Jones soundtrack or a nice bit of Ronan Keating. Which I NEVER do by the way.
Yorkie – the truckers choice. Add biscuit and raisin into the mix and you have something pretty bloody special… *northern accent – Gerrit Ett.
Also, I’m sure you have heard the old proverb “Always keep a Yorkie behind your spectacles”. No…..? Seriously, where’ve you been darling?
And finally Drifter – loves it. Bit of a curve ball and only the most discerning of chocolate snack emporiums appear to stock this most delicious dual fingered wafer, chocolate, caramel combo.
I’ve made it sound dirty.
It is. 262 calories of pure filth.
Are any of these your favourites?
Do you ever have several chocolate treats instead of something “proper” for your dinner?
Do you ever think “I should really have this organic soup/lentil stew/lettuce with lettuce salad but all I REALLY want is a family size bag of maletasers?”
Please let us know in the comments below, you’ll make us feel better about our lack of willpower.
Big TFI Friday
Charlotte, Lolly and Adam xxx
