Christmas chocolates.

Just opened my last tub from Christmas and only had 3 to begin with.

We didn't really have any Christmas chocolates, just my MIL's peanut brittle, and that rarely makes it all the way home. It's a 45-minute drive. wink

One of my kids still has some of his Halloween candy, though. I have some leftovers from filling the Easter baskets socked away for chocolate emergencies.

Not even made a dent in Easter choclate.

ICanSeeTheSun Fri 01-Aug-14 11:19:42

Floop i don't even buy them, they are all gifts

I threw a tin of Xmas choccies out a couple of weeks back, since DH decided to store them in the cupboard, next to the cooker hmm

That is a bit strange.
I think if you eat so little, and get so many, it would make more sense to regift / donate to raffles or something.

How on earth have you managed to keep them that long? Mine were gone on the 23rd December!

Maybe. Mine are long gone.

Wow. Ours rarely make it past Boxing Day <greedy>

I still have 4 unopened boxes from Christmas.

I have no idea why people but it for me - they know I don't like chocolate. They'll get regifted.

We still have a tin of sweets but the chocolate is long gone.

I put a couple of boxes in the bin recently as they had gone out of date. Next year I'm taking them straight to work after Xmas as they just don't get eaten here.

My MIL brought us round a tin of quality street she had left from Christmas. They lasted about a day once they got to our house grin.

I've managed to stop people buying them for us. Does my nut in.

Idontseeanyicegiants Fri 01-Aug-14 13:29:38

We have a general tub of the chocolates that nobody likes so it's basically mini snickers and bounty grin the rest were gone by new year!
I should bin them really.

I just cleared out my dining room breakfront an dropped off 7 or 8 sealed boxes of chocolate at my local soup kitchen (all gifts). I really don't understand the chocolate thing. I'm not against chocolate, but I don't understand its rabid following.

Yes I've still got some and loads of easter eggs. I've just been given a load for end of term which I'll dish out to various people.

Does anyone else find if they eat too much sweet stuff like chocolate, they get a sort of burning sensation in their throat apart from feeling sick?

Maybe it's because I ate so many maltesers when pregnant and bf as I had a hankering for them.

Savoury food on the other hand...

shock shock shock
Even the crap chocolate is gone by the end of January here! We don't get a ridiculous amount though. If there's chocolate in the house I will scoff it.
I also get the horrible burny feeling after eating too much sugar doesn't stop me though

We still have a box of toffee from 2 Christmases ago. <smug>

ArgyMargy Fri 01-Aug-14 16:07:02

No, but you're definitely the only person using "whom" in that bizarre way.

beccajoh Fri 01-Aug-14 16:08:38

We've still got some kicking around. Easter choc still sitting in the cupboard too!

beccajoh Fri 01-Aug-14 16:09:59

It was all gifts rather than stuff we've bought. I don't have a sweet tooth at all and DH is dairy intolerant so can't eat it.
