We just had a "chocolate incident" here today. Normally chocolate has a very short lifespan around here, but last week I had bought some chocolate cookies (look like Oreos but are gluten-free) put them in the pantry, and for some reason forgot about them.

This morning DW informed me that I should eat some of them because "somehow" the package was open and they were evaporating. I snagged a few but wasn't really hungry so I put them back. A few hours later they were completely gone!

DW admits to nothing. Investigation to continue.

It's the ice cream that evaporates at our house. High volatility stuff!

Oddly, the Safeway Just 4 You coupons that appear every week seem to focus on Haagen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. That's a good thing. I guess, because those cartons seem to disappear from the freezer, even when well hidden behind the bags of vegetables.

We have that problem here. 3 kids tend to make chocolate or sweets of any kind disappear quickly.

Thanks, no Safeway here but I need to look for coupons. That stuff is great but for some reason the serving size information appears wrong. Despite weighing our servings there's not 4 servings in them.☺

Which is why I don't buy it by the half-gallon...
