Chocolate Samplings & Game Time

Hi, Dear Friends,
Please, first, tell me that you are safe. We'll work on happy, upbeat moods later. Right now, there's too much scary stuff going on in the world. Let's hope our friend Yvonne got the xanax she requested; she's in Houston with family. Love ya, Yvonne. Stay safe. Okay?

I've needed extra doses of my drug of choice these days. So I sampled Chloe's Dark Chocolate, low cal popsicles. Yummy. It tastes light and chocolate-y, definitely satisfying. It didn't taste particularly dark, more like milk chocolate. But these are pretty darn good. I give it an 8 on a 1-10 scale.

Next, I tried chocolate chip popcorn. I know, weird, right? Yeah, no good. Bad. They tasted like -I don't know- some type of cereal fail. Why try to combine sweet and salty, if you're not going to do either the sweet or the salty right? Don't try this one. I give it a 3 on a 1-10 scale. (I did finish the bag, so I can't honestly go lower. I've tasted worse.)




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   Now, for silliness' sake, let's play games! I stole these from Facebook and Twitter. Please respond in the comments section. I'll leave a few suggestions, italicized, to get us started.

(1) Ruin a first date in 4 words. ______  ______  ______  _______.

Man: Is four inches okay?
Woman: No sex before marriage!


(2) Give an unlikely name to the Royal Baby (Kate is pregnant with baby #3.)

Fresh Prince of Buckingham Palace
Thurston Howell, III.

&/or (2B) What will be the Royal Baby's first words?

Mum, why do I have more hair than Daddy?
Sh*t! Granny cursed like a sailor when I peed on her new hat.  

Stay safe. Keep a smile.
Know that you are loved. 'Cuz I love you.

  1. Yeah, I'm not big on chocolate and salt. Wouldn't even consider that popcorn.

  2. I think popcorn is severely over-rated. I really would defile chocolate with it.
    On the babies name? Spare the Second.

    1. Oh, that's a good bad name, EC.
      Thank you.

      I used to think popcorn was the ultimate snack food. But it has fat in it. That's ludicrous. Now I agree with you.

  3. The second sure doesn't sound appetizing.

    1. Relax. It's only crabs.

    2. Odd One Out

    3. They named a toilet paper after us?

      I think I'll test #1 whenever/if ever I had a chance to. Smiles.

  4. I don't understand the salted caramel trend at all, so I can't see how salt & chocolate would be at all good. Gross.

    1. And this one is just a sloppy job - nothing good about it. I'm not into salted caramel either. I don't get it. But bacon flavored chocolate can be awesome.

      Take care and stay safe, friend.

    1. I'm giggling. I really like 1c. And it's hilarious to imagine them naming their new baby Hilary. Donald was probably the most common twitter response too.
      Thanks for playing, Wilma.

    1. Haha. A Rednecky name like those would be awesome. And now, world, meet the newest royal: Prince Joe-Bob of Buckingham. Someone toss that babe a barbecued spare rib and case of beer.

    1. Smart one - daddy's the Sheriff.
      And Hephzibah - I kinda like it. She'll never learn to spell her name, but she'll be able to afford her own personal speller. So, who cares?
      Thank you, Jono.
      Be safe and well.

  14. Chocolate should never be adulterated. That's in the Mosaic Decalogue. As for names of the next royal, I'm always in favor of Geo.(George) --unless it's a girl, in which case I recommend Mab, deliverer of dreams.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's a beautiful definition (of Mab), but I can't like the sound of the name. George or Geo's a great one, though.

      Take care, friend.

  15. The popsicles sound like something worth a try. I have tried popcorn that has had chocolate added that was good but as you said....if you are going for the salty, sweet combo it has to be done right.

    1. Yes, a sloppy, throw together job doesn't work when you're working with chocolate. Why don't people get that?

      Thanks for stopping by, Cheryl.
      Be safe and well.
