Antique Daddy, Silliness

It’s Always About The Chocolate

When AD went out of town recently, he called me in the evening to see how my day went.

When I asked him how his trip was going, he said fine and then went on to tell me about the hotel.

“I got a suite,” he reported.

“Really?” I said, “You got a chocolate on your pillow? Must be a nice hotel.”

If you were to crack my head open and peek inside, you would not find gray matter, or air as many of you suspect, but Ghiradelli.

  1. Chocolate. Nature’s perfect food. Okay, maybe not… but it should be. And I’m with you on the Ghirardelli thing; it’s the best all around. I usually cycle between several different brands; Dove, Dilletante, Cadbury and even Hershey – but Ghirardelli is the best.

  2. My husband recently brought home several boxes of Ghiradelli from San Francisco – enough for me to take to my ladies retreat and share with everybody. Because really, you can never have too much chocolate at a ladies retreat, right?

  3. What is it about chocolate? Even my 12 year old daughter goes around asking if we have any chocolate in the house. Little does she know that mom has eaten all of it, even the generic chocolate chips.

  4. So does Antique Daddy get to eat the chocolate or MUST he bring it home for Antique Mommy to eat?

    He usually eats the cheap hotel chocolate himself and then buys me a piece or two from the hotel gift shop, the expensive kind that you buy by the piece and they put in a tiny pretty gold box.

  5. Too stinking funny. I recently fell head over heels for Lindt “white chocolate truffles with cocoa nibs, inspired by cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream.”

    ooo-ooo-oooh! Lindt chocolates are dangerously delicious, so smooth. Impossible to stop at just ten. ~AM

  6. Mmm – chocolate is totally my poison of choice. I really like the Cadbury eggs – although a lot of people find them too sweet. Yummy, sugary, creamy goodness!

  7. Good chocolate is never to be missed. And I am not listening to the talk about Lindt truffles. I am on a diet. I am on a diet. I am on a diet. And I’m sick and can’t go to the store… maybe I could call and beg dh… after all, I’m sick…

  8. Right now, Target has their Starbucks chocolate on clearance. If I have to live with that knowledge, other chocoholics have to know also 😉

  9. My husband brings me his pillow chocolate when he has to stay overnight out of town. Two kinds of sweet. Also, Doves dark chocolate is great!

  10. Milka is my favorite. Can’t stop at 10 or 20. Ack! Must explain the 20 extra pounds I’ve accumulated in the last 20 years….

  11. I am 81 and I decided that death by chocolate is the way to go, of course, bacon is really, really good! But chocolate, when I start eating more chocolate than is good for me, I have lived long enough and, but I worry, what if chocolate and bacon are what keeps me in good health? What would I eat then? Hmmmm, fried chicken from Popeyes, Kentucky Fried, or that other one. Yeah, death by fried chicken!!! That’s the way to go.

  12. LOL!

    We stayed at a hotel recently where they left chocolates on the nightstands. My husband didn’t figure it out until the last day, when he happened to see one before I ate it. So my brain is full of chocolate fluff too.

  13. Can’t get enough chocolate around here either!! In fact I’m looking forward to Sunday so I can have a little treat — maybe a biggo chocolate bunny!!

  14. Hee!!! It took me a minute to get that.. I s’pose the air in MY head had to get pressurized or something. Hilarious!

  15. I keep a stash of chocolate handy for daily consumption. Never miss a day. My husband has his own stash, and he is not to touch mine. (We don’t like white chocolate, though. It just isn’t right.)

  16. Chocolate is my friend, esp Toblerone!! You MUST try it. It’s HEAVENLY! Of course, I’ve consumed my fair share of Lindt and Dove, too. But Toblerone is hands down my favorite. 🙂

  17. I clear the Ghirardelli (sp! sp!) shelf every time I hit the Target. My word, have you tried the twilight delight? Or the espresso escape? Or the toffee whatever-it’s-called? But the plain dark chocolate is divine as well. Sigh…

    I’m convinced that whatever they put in the Ghiradelli chocolate, the ones with the smooth and creamy centers, is illegal. It’s just that good.
