Chocolate covered pretzels

A while ago, I tweeted about my desire to have some Nestle Pretzel Flips, but it appears they are no longer sold in the UK. Along with Lucky Charms, the best things are always stolen from me. My good friend pointed out a site called American Soda that delivers US groceries to our shores, but shipping isn’t exactly cheap. Instead, I had an idea. Why not make them myself? I visited my mother today and we had a go at making them.

Better than chocolate

Better than chocolate

Our stationery suppliers often send free gifts as a thank you for our custom, and presumably an incentive to stay. Most of the time this is boxes of chocolates, or fancy biscuits. As it turns out, our stationery orderer (that’s not a word, is it?), went off the idea of eating them all, and has been hoarding them up for a special tombola day. That was yesterday. Initially, I had myself a box of chocolates, but after some rather furious swapping - seriously it was like bartering at a marketplace - I have wound up with a cuddly Christmas polar bear.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of baby animals that are cute. I’m quite specific when it comes to which ones I like, but either way, it doesn’t seem like a sensible idea to take me to a country farm show. Where there are cute baby animals. For sale. No, I didn’t get one. Sadly I didn’t have £75 on my person, but if I did… well, we could be having a very different conversation right now.

Confession

Confession

Hello. My name’s Christine and I’m a chocoholic. Well, a recovering chocoholic, anyway. I’ve been on the wagon for a whole week now, and it seems like forever. I didn’t know I was a chocoholic, I didn’t know I had a problem until I tried to quit. It happened because I was hungry and ate a Twix for lunch. Then I looked at the nutritional information (or un-nutritional information for a Twix) and noted the calories.

Blogathon 2006 (7 of 48): Chocolate brownies and chocolate biscuits

I’m eating chocolate biscuits. It’s very bad and useless for the diet but delicious. There’s a guy at work who is religiously good at what he puts into his body. He has precisely two cups of coffee a day, and then up to three cups of tea. He will not have any biscuits, cake or anything anyone brings in. He has a salad lunch brought from home every single day of the week.
