Like Chocolate

Even though it might look like it, this post is not solely about Lindt chocolate, but about chocolate in general. I've done a post on Lindt before anyway!

So, I'm a well known chocolate addict who came out to the world with my confession long ago. I eat chocolate every day. When for some reason I get deprived of it even for a few days, my eating patterns change dramatically - I would either eat anything and everything chocolate flavored within reach or would just start eating too much of everything. So yeah, basically, chocolate is one of the reasons I stay fit, ha. I know my chocolate well too - I can always tell when my body's craving a 70% cocoa treat or a 85% chocolate bar, and I try to keep all kinds of brown goodness at home at any time. To tell you the truth, it used to be even worse - all my passwords used to include the word "chocolate" in them... Not any more. Oh, chocolate, how I'm thankful for you!..


  1. i eat chocolate daily too...and not many people can say that! i just love it...glad we're in the same boat.

  2. OMG I LOVE the Intense Orange Lindt. It's one of the reasons for my happiness. True story.

  3. I love chocolate too! I crave for it everyday and give in almost everyday. Lindt is one of the best among the reasonably priced ones.

    I just found your blog and I think it's great! It's really inspiring and it nudged me to stick with positive thoughts. :)

  4. Hahaha! I am a certified chocolate addict too. If I don't get my daily dose, I feel so sluggish. And I eat any kind... dark, white, milk. I'm not choosy as long as it's chocolate.

    Happy Sunday Julia! xoxo

  5. Lol this post is cute and funny! I get chocolate cravings every now and then. This lindth store near my job has everything 50 percent off I bet you'd love it lol. - loooove godiva chocolate, what about u? Ooo nd the godiva shakes are to dieeeee for. But my fav is reeses, twix, bunch of crunch, and I like hot cocoa too... Lol look at us talking about chocolate. This is terrible too much sugar I'm gonna break out lol

  6. Ha ha ha. Another certified chocolate addict. I can name the brands I love but they'd be too many :O
    Usually I tell my husband to pick up on a bar or two when he's out. Believe it or not, I get ticked off if it's a chocolate I don't like lol. Selective and bad me.

  7. I don't know the "hot" one !!!!! What a shame... Have to go to the supermarket right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

  8. I love chocolate!!!...I know some people don't think its really chocolate...but I really really love white chocolate.

  9. Alison, good to know we're in the same boat indeed! :)

    Arushi, it's the only one from the picture I don't eat (it was for mom) - I'm allergic to nuts and it has loads in it :(

    Manila Girl, thank you so much! Happy to help out with some positivity :) Welcome!

    Leah, I love all kinds, but mostly eat dark chocolate though!

    For The Fierce, oh I'd definately love that store haha Godiva is good, I love their fab packaging. But from my personal expereince they make most of tehir stuff with nuts and all, I get allergies, so this one's tricky... And I'd be broke if I started eating it every day anyway, haha

    Arty, I see what you mean and I can understand that :)

    Guillaume, happy chocolate shopping! :)

    Bo, well, it contains enough of cocoa butter so it's still chocolate... :)

  10. ..hello Julia ..thank you for your lovely comment ,it was with lot of passion which I love can guess what is in my hand now and every time I'm on pc - the bar of kinder bueno (it's not like proper chocolate but I have been obsessed with it lately : )) ..but I do love chocolate now and then ,it's wierd that small piece of choco gives you some strange kind of satisfaction , almost like in TV adverts when you just close your eyes and forget about everything : ) I know excatly when it's chocolate time , it's like light bulb switch in your head and you know it ..have a very lovely evening darling : )

  11. Ellinelle, I love your approach to chocolate and comments on my blog too :)) xo

  12. I will take it in any form, at any time!

  15. There is nothing like good chocolate. I think it's one of the things I miss most about Europe...our American Hershey's bars simply can't compete

  16. every one likes chocolate , i am one of them
    that why my teeths are with gems

    thanks for beautiful comment

  17. explendit blog, congratulations
    regard from Reus Catalonia
    thank you

  18. Nuheila, Fazers' 'Geisha' chocolates are good!

    Treacle, I'm no fan of Russian chocolate too, so always buy European stuff! I feel you :)

    Té la mà Maria - Reus, thank you!! And aww, I know where Reus is!! I've almost been there :) On my train rides from Salou to Barcelona and back we've either always passed Reus or it was one of the nearby stations.. can't quite recall now for sure!

  19. I clicked on the Lindt link, and I swear I couldn't finish watching the commercial. It was simply too enticing. Ah ~ you've sent me on a chocolate mission now.

    It's so funny that you made this "confession" as if it were a sin. Chocolate is no sin, Julia oh Julia. As the saying goes, "Forget love, I'd rather fall in chocolate." However, it is definitely an obsession when you start using it in your passwords. That's a whole new level I've never heard of.

  20. I devoured a milk choco bar with almonds last night. It was reward for cleaning FOREVER in prep for the in-laws arrival!

  21. i don't think that there is anyone who doesn't have a thing about chocolate!!i love eating choco with's my fav!

  22. thank you for the sweet comment you left on my bedroom makeover post - that was very kind of you!!
    i know this is my 2nd comment on 1 post, but had to stop by and let you know it brightened my day!
    xoxo alison

  23. I just shoved a chocolate bar in my mouth :)

  24. haha very cute. I am more of a salt person though so my version would be like "Oh Stir Fry, how thankful I am for you..." haha.

  25. Graham, oh Graham, glad you enjoyed the add! I've watched a lot of the stuff on their website a few days back too :) And well... It's not a sin, but many consider it to be! haha Lol at the new level.. Well, I used to be obsessed, it's not as bad now!

    jeune_premier, believe it or not, I know one such person - my friend Teddy doesn't like chocolate!

    Mademoiselle Frou-Frou, aws, thanks! No worries about commenting on one post twice, I really don't mind :) It's actually very sweet of you to come and aknowledge the comment this way!

    Caitlin, go try some 99% cocoa chocolate then - I swear it tastes salty to me!!!

  26. Love, love, love chocolate, too and Lindt (70%) definitely is my favourite!


I appreciate you taking the time to connect and share your thoughts, so thank you for your comment! And while you're at it... Why not tell me what you're thankful for today? ;-)
