Finish the top first you heathen.

Grr.

Particularly if your wife has offered you one from her own personal box of chocolates.

Are you the chocolate police?

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 02-Nov-12 00:17:14

Yus. That's definitely beyond the pale.

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 02-Nov-12 00:17:34

I am the narked police, hactually.

It's okay if you're under 5.
Or if they're your very own chocolates.
Or if there's only strawberry creams left on the top layer.
Or orange creams.
Or hard toffees.....

Most annoying if all the nice chocolates have disappeared from the bottom layer before you notice it's been started!

DP also always opens another carton of milk before the old one is finished because he likes to have the 'new' milk. angry

I rarely eat chocolate, and thats why I like boxes of chocs as I can have a couple and leave them in the fridge for a couple of weeks having the odd one every so often.

But you NEVER EVER start on the bottom layer before the end of the top layer! i will force myself to eat the Turkish Delight one before I start the bottom layer!

And I love coffe, strawberry and orange creams, and the hard toffees!

VerySmallSqueak Fri 02-Nov-12 00:26:08

The turkish delight ones are some of the first to go (on both layers wink )

BestIsWest Fri 02-Nov-12 00:26:39

Only if it is YOUR box and no, by the way the coffee ones are MINE. Lovebunny I am looking at you <stern> .

<<hums loidly>>

Bogeyface Fri 02-Nov-12 00:28:51

Stop fucking HUMMMINNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sparklyoldwhizzbangcatpusswhee Fri 02-Nov-12 00:29:39

Start in the bottom before you've finished the top? <<faints>>

Cynner Fri 02-Nov-12 00:30:43

Just do what my children do..take bite from bottem of each choc until you find suitable one..

SoleSource Fri 02-Nov-12 00:31:14

Go wild! Tip them into a bowl.

Cynner Fri 02-Nov-12 00:34:08

<<aghast>> Sole! Then they will be all mixed together in an unruly, non layered heap!

TalcAndTurnips Fri 02-Nov-12 00:34:36

It's shockingly bad behaviour; I agree Chaosy-poohs.

I have had the traumatic experience of lifting off the empty top layer of a giant tennis court-sized box of Thornton's choccies to find that the lower layer had been pillaged to near extinction, by one -or both - of my errant daughters. angry

Just when one was expecting to find a burgeoning, fragrant array - instead finding a barren wasteland of empty gold craters.

I wept.

Maryz Fri 02-Nov-12 00:34:59

Just the thought of tipping them into a bowl makes me feel slightly sick shock

I agree with both the second layer starting and the humming.

Unforgivable, both of them.

How am I still married confused.

NormanTheForeman Fri 02-Nov-12 00:36:54

One should always start with the top layer, and not start the bottom layer until all the top layer are finished except the ghastly coconut ones.

ImperialFireworksInMyKnickers Fri 02-Nov-12 00:37:13

Take ALL chocolates to bed. Evict DP (and the cat). Lock door. And rearrange in stomach, small intestine, large intestine... see, layers!
