I love chocolate. Wait, make that--I LOVE LOVE LOVE chocolate, and I'm especially fond of the dark stuff. Godiva truffles don't last long in my house, and that's exactly why I don't buy them very often. An eighteen dollar box=five pounds on my thighs. So, I always look for something cheaper and with less calories. I found it. Chocolate covered Altoids. Yes, those little low calorie strong mints have now been drowned in dark chocolate. I bought a box.
And ate it.
The entire thing.
In less than 10 minutes.
Yes, they're a lot cheaper than Godiva truffles, but those little pellets of sin were not meant to be consumed in one 10-minute sitting.They're addictive, and cheap and addictive are NOT a good combination when it comes to my thighs. I'm betting the hero and heroine on the cover of my latest Intrigue, TRACE EVIDENCE IN TARRANT COUNTY, don't have issues like this in their lives. They're too busy dodging bullets. :)
So, what's your vice when it comes to sinful foods and snacks?
Delores Fossen, off to buy more pellets of sin
