As a part of the Back to the Books Event, I want to talk chocolate.  Why mention chocolate when mentioning the start of a school year?  That should be a rhetorical question, but I’ll answer anyway.

Back to the Books WEB

Chocolate is wonderful.

Chocolate is calming.

Chocolate is for all teachers.

I am a big fan of rewarding myself with chocolate when necessary.  Or just because.

So, for the first week of school, since re entry is sometimes challenging, I always have chocolate on hand for myself. {I also have reinforces for the kiddos, no worries.  It’s just not chocolate.}  I consider chocolate a back to school supply.

It should be on the school supply aisle, honestly.

My chocolate love has changed through the years.  I think I have become a bit of a chocolate snob.  I’m ok with that since it has meant that I buy less chocolate and I eat healthier chocolate.

Currently, I’m a mix.  Not all that healthy, actually.

I don’t really like milk chocolate anymore.  Once I liked dark chocolate, milk chocolate was just not right.  White chocolate is a frustrating imposter.  And I honestly don’t like candy all that much.  I eat it in small amounts.  Brownies, well… I could eat my weight in those. So, I’m not counting those.

If you’ve been around here enough, you know I’m a huge fan of chocolate almonds.  That’s still true.  For some reason, though, I don’t feel well when I eat dark chocolate almonds anymore.  Which is a bummer because I have a HUGE container from Trader Joe’s.

So, I’m back to Almond M&Ms today.

And Dove Dark Chocolate & Almond Promises.

And Talenti Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Caramel on the side.  Ok, I know that includes a non chocolate item.

Paul bought me these fabulous bars as a treat, but they are too expensive , so I will go back to my stand by of little containers of each.  Yes, I take a half a spoonful of one and then the other for each bite.  It’s an art, really.
