Jul 4, 2016~Time to consume mass quantities of chocolate

Some observations about chocolate that I have pondered over time are presented here for your guidance. Following them is not a requirement, it's only for guidance. Please, no wagering.

God bless the USA and the success of it's 240 yo grand experiment in how to create a great republic.

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.
Problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in hot car. 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 provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?
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.
Equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate is a balanced diet.
The preservatives in chocolate 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!

There's a cure for that!

We did 8 months with less than 10 grams of added sugar and no chocolate. Life's better with chocolate!

I don't think I've had a day without dark chocolate in 6 months. If I did, it was so horrible I blotted it out of my memory.

What does chocolate melted over crisp bacon taste like, I wonder.

DW bought a bacon flavored chocolate truffle. Barely edible.

Can't say much about chocolate, but God Bless America, and thank you to all those that continue to make our country safe and free. Hope you all have a safe and happy day, and that you enjoy John Wayne's video as much as I did:
