My fridge is 80% chocolate

Things have definitely swung towards a sugar majority since I last took stock of what was in our fridge.

Last Sunday, we acquired 40+ Oh Henry! chocolate peanut butter bars, airflown from Canada by my earnest mother. On top of that, she also slipped us a Cadbury's peanut butter chocolate bar, which she'd picked up as a standby consolation prize in case she couldn't find the Oh Henry! bars.

The second significant addition was from an ex-colleague who now lives in Brisbane: a few days ago, she presented me with a pack of Droste bittersweet chocolate pastilles, which are in fact made in Holland.

And today, the lovely bowb brought me a box of Anthon Berg chocolate-covered marizpan, airflown not from Denmark but from Sydney, and also a new treat for the tastebuds, Haigh's dark chocolate-covered marzipan bars, which are indeed made-in-Australia. I just had one of the Haigh's bars and oh my, they've got the sugar balance just right because I ate the entire thing lickety-split without so much as needing a sip of water in between bites.

All this, in addition to the chocolate truffles, chocolate raisins and half of the Cadbury's fruit-and-nut bar mentioned in my earlier blog post.

I'm not sure why the Aussies seem to have the best selection of European chocolate delights in their stores, but I'm grateful for their availability and my friends' largesse.

Chocolate overload party, anyone?

strange... I just made my sick from eating 19 chocolate truffles in two sittings last night. But, golly... these were good... dark chocolate... barely sweet and so dark...

have fun, and learn from my example. pace yourself.

It would be really good if I could prescribe chocolate infusions.

Chocolate consumption update: We are carefully pacing ourselves. I had only one Reese's peanut butter cup (I forgot to mention them in the blog post; they're from the North America-vacationing mater as well and we've got five more cups). I'm sure Terz has eaten a couple of Oh Henry! bars.

Translation: There's still plenty left for everybody! :)
