Promises promises

I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I can pass up lots of salty snacks without much turmoil - but put something sweet in front of me and it's all over.

One of my favorite small treats is Dove dark chocolate. Occasionally I like the dark chocolate covered almonds. But the standard is Dove dark chocolate Promises. They're just the right size to have something small after lunch (just 1! or maybe 2!). My Granny keeps them at her house - and often they can be found at my parents. I like the Dove brand better than Hershey's for sure. However.

The people who make these feel the need to put cute little sayings inside the wrappers (hence the term, promises). At first, I found this fun - like fortune cookies!

I changed my mind however, when I ran across this one several months ago: "Chocolate always loves you back." Are you serious?? There are so many things wrong with someone putting that inside dark chocolate - that I don't know where to start.

If I were a stronger person, I might boycott the product until they improve their sayings. I just don't think I can do that.

Here's a sampling of today's "promises":
  • Listen to your heartbeat and dance.
    That...would be a weird dance. And I'm in my office. No thanks.
  • Flirting is mandatory.
    Says who? Are you going to come make me? And again...I'm at the office. That is not allowed.
  • Get your feet massaged.
    Now you're talking...

(Yeah - so that was 3 pieces. But it's Monday!)

I am glad that I am not the only one who loves Dark Choclate. Sarah
