First of all, congrats on your new header. It's classy and beautiful.

Secondly, loved the image heading your post today. Personally, I like my fine chocolates to be on the petite side I have been known to devour an enormous amount of Belgian chocolate Haagan Dazs, but when it comes to dessert at a dinner party, balance is the word. And your chocolate shells are the perfect solution.

Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Ok now I am a known Chocoholic! You would not think so to look at me but I do NOT lie. Really I am. But I have to tell you out of all the chocolate that has caressed my lips, English Chocolate is the best! Hands down! *whispers* but I am also kinda bias!

Hi Lyn,

Really I think you OUGHT to be able to provide samples of these delicacies. Otherwise it's just NOT FAIR! And although the rest of the world shies away from British chocolate (Cadbury's), there's SOMETHING about it.

And I like your new header too but think I forgot to mention it last time!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
Sending thoughts of chocolate..they say that's what counts!
I get Cadbury's here..lined up next to all the others..
Thanks about the header!

Lyn said...

Hi Mary Ann-
Let your willpower melt with the chocolate! All in a good cause...thanks!
