Eating chocolate

Do you have a certain time in the day before which you don't let yourself eat chocolate?

juneybean Fri 22-Aug-14 15:28:11

No. Chocolate is free for all, it's my perk of being an adult grin

Definitely. Chocolate is a once-kids-are-in-bed-and-something-good-is-on-the-telly thing only. Even better if DH has had an early night and left me to it.

It's just not right in the day.

Nope. Breakfast chocolate is the best

Adulterated chocolate is a daytime thing... choccy biccies etc.

Unadulterated chocolate is most definitely a solo evening pleasure. By the bar or by the cup it needs moonlight and solitude.

I rarely eat it but when I do, I don't think I've ever eaten it before about lunch time (well not since I was a kid anyway).

It's not self imposed though

That ^^ sounds like one of those ridiculously cheesy adverts, where women are seen to be eating their hidden chocolate, alone and in full evening dress grin

For once I just want to see a normal couple, slobbing in front of the TV with a bar of chocolate and a cuppa.

No, there are no rules with chocolate.

I like to have my special posh choc with a glass of wine at the weekend. Otherwise I'd mill into the stuff all day long...

Nomama Fri 22-Aug-14 15:51:46

oh bugger, it does doesn't it?

Shit, I eat chocolate in a very naice, middle class manner.

Shoot me now blush

Only allowed at the end of the day, when I've sat down to relax. Have to limit myself somehow

WorraLiberty Fri 22-Aug-14 15:54:29

Before I load my gun, do you wear a long evening gown and keep your chocolate locked in a secret wooden box?

Think very carefully about your reply! grin

I like to wait until at least an hour after breakfast but don't always manage it...

You can have it for breakfast on Mothers Day/Birthday/Easter/Christmas

I pretend that I don't eat chocolate before lunchtime but in reality I love breakfast chocolate. Chocolate is an any time food. Like ice cream, cake and leftover trifle.

Nomama Fri 22-Aug-14 15:59:53

[uses very small voice] No, Worra, but I do freeze frogs, when I can find them.

WorraLiberty Fri 22-Aug-14 16:01:30

I was going to ask if you froze frogs wearing an evening dress

But since I've never seen a frog in an evening dress, I've unloaded the gun grin

choc biscuits in the day. Things like Gu choc puddings or actual chocolate after DD is in bed.

MrsDavidBowie Fri 22-Aug-14 16:03:05

I only like chocolate if its been in the fridge.
Never eat it during the day.
Always in the evening after 830.
And only once a week.

BreadForBrains Fri 22-Aug-14 16:03:13

Nomama, I read that and thought you sounded like you're Nigella! grin

Everythingwillbeok Fri 22-Aug-14 16:04:42

I would never eat it before 11am weird I know but it lies heavy in my stomach and makes me feel sickly all day otherwise.

Nomama Fri 22-Aug-14 16:09:38

It gets worse, doesn't it?

I obviously meant Freddo Frogs, not real ones. And now I am Nigella-esque... aargh!

WorraLiberty Fri 22-Aug-14 16:15:52

Ok I think you may need to be shot to put you out of your own misery grin

A mercy killing so to speak...

Nomama Fri 22-Aug-14 16:35:27

[closes eyes and waits]

Would this be your first MN Assassination, Worra?

WorraLiberty Fri 22-Aug-14 16:38:00

<< Tuts >> Now if I told you that I'd have to kill you

Ohh wait.....
