Ok, Ok. I know this idea got TOTALLY played out in November with everyone suddenly deciding to be grateful for everything under the sun, but, indulge me for just a minute.
I know many people have a sweet tooth, myself included, but for some reason, the things that seem to really catch my fancy are the items that some manufacturer has deemed ‘speciality’ or ‘holiday’ items, meaning I can only get them once a year.
Bastards. (Crap, I’m probably not supposed to swear when I’m writing about being thankful. Shit. Dammit, I did it again.)
Today I am thankful for this…The Dark Chocolate Orange
What? You’ve never had one? Well, let me tell you, you are missing out! Dark Chocolate sweetness mixed with an orange citrus kick. And as an added bonus, the treat also serves as a stress reliever since, in order to enjoy your treat, you literally have to whack the candy on a table to break it open.
‘She said what?’ WHACK….EAT…..ENJOY
‘You want me to do what?’ WHACK….EAT….ENJOY
Honestly, if they passed these out at the doors of family gatherings, there might be less fighting and arguing, more smiling and hugging.
But now, the holidays are officially over. Tinsel is being taken down. Santas are being put on clearance.
Which brings me to the second thing I am thankful for in this post. These delicious balls of sweet goodness are now 50%! Luckily for me, I have a half empty freezer in the garage just dying to be filled up.
How many dark chocolate oranges do you think I will need to get me through work stress, family stress, and holiday stress until next November?
