Everyone is out. Not due back for 2 hours.

Fancying either M&S bacon rashes or opening the Honey roast peanuts.

I could easily replace before they are missed.

Everyone else has had a warning about not going in and touching anything so I know iabu but......

Thanks Kit grin

Me and my mum opened the Christmas cake yesterday because it was out of date today shock glad she checked now grin

But I've already cracked open tins of roses and celebrations, and the pringles blush

This is why I'm not buying anymore till just before Christmas!

I broke out the Lidl chilli roast peanuts and stealthily ate them over the course of the weekend. Finding it hard to resist the pistachios.

Oh man, this thread is really weakening my resolve.

I want Roses now....

Oh I love m&s bacon rashers. I have already ate my Christmas cheese board & crackers, some posh crisps and drank the naice wine bought for presents fsmile

Go on, eat them.
MY Dad (one of 4 brothers) used to be threatened with all kinds of badness by their Mum if they touched the Christmas pop. My Nan would only buy it at Christmas and it came in crates from the milkman I think & would be stacked tantalisingly in the conservatory....
The boys used to quietly unstack the crates (she bought loads!) and drink all the pop in the bottom crate and then refill the bottles with water so they still looked full. Then restack the crates...Every year....Then make themselves very scarce indeed when the day came that the final layer were about to be drunk. Every year she then went ballistic.

Not the actual board (even I draw the line at that) just the cheeses from it!

80% through a double tier of M&S Belgian biscuits here. Fererro rocher are my next targets.

It's December so it's fine. Plenty of time to buy more to replace.

This is why I started buying me food just before Christmas. There's no point in me buying it too far in advance 'cause it never lasts and I just have to replace it.

I want to try that caramel/sea salt fudge. smile

Last night I was alone with X factor, sad, moi?! and I cracked open the thorntons chocolate covered toffee, a box not a packet, there's not a trace left today blush

honeybeeridiculous Mon 09-Dec-13 22:15:50

Well done dark that's awesome thanks you must let yourself a treat over crimbo tho!! cake

We only bought it all on Saturday. There was me spouting off in the supermarket that no one was allowed near any of it and woe betide them if they even thought of opening the cupboard. fblush

Tomorrow I will be in M&S buying one bag of Bacon Rashes.

They were bloody lovely. Enjoyed every last one.

DH and I woofed a Reese's chocolate snowman last night (recommended). I had to fetch it because I have hidden all the nice Christmas food in the garage away from DH. In the cupboard with the J cloths and polish; he'll never look there.

It was very enjoyable. Also, it is nearly Christmas innit?

RayPurchase Mon 09-Dec-13 22:50:27

I've eaten and replaced DS's chocolate coins for his stocking twice now blush and started on the chocolate covered hazelnuts and caremelised almonds.

Darkesteyes Mon 09-Dec-13 23:28:36

CinnamonPorridge Mon 09-Dec-13 23:37:47

One box of lindor down here, and twiglets never last more than 24 hrs especially in the tin.

Not only are you being reasonable, but you are being caring and vigilant to prioritise their health in sampling dormant (and therefore potentially hazardous) foodstuffs for their benefit with no regard for your own well-being

I miss Lindor sad

Allalonenow Tue 10-Dec-13 00:33:44

Black Forest stollen sounds irresistible.

honeybeeridiculous Tue 10-Dec-13 07:42:06

I hate Lindor, hate the sensations of the middle bit of the chocolate, am I weird?! Give me thorntons or Lilly o'briens chocs and I won't refuse yougrin

SilverApples Tue 10-Dec-13 07:45:13

Yes you are.
Remember that thread about the 4 year old who ate all the chocolate from her advent calendar, and her sister's? This is the adult equivalent! {grin]

I opened the chocolate finger wheel on Sunday. Very disappointing, was expecting a wheel arrangement of 3 different choccy fingers. In box was 3 separate packets of choc fingers.
