Co-op have got a fabulous deal going on all their choccies at the moment so yesterday I went and bought

1 tin of celebrations
1 tin of roses
£8 for both

2 boxes of ferrero rocher
£2 each box

2 giant toblerones
£1.75 each

2 terrys chocolate oranges
£1 each

Large box of Thorntons luxury choccies

So, I brought a whole load of xmas choccies while they were on half price offer. Some for us and some for presents.

We have already almost eaten the box of celebrations blush - I do it every single year, when will I learn not to buy choccies till xmas eve.

On the other hand, get yourself down to Co-op if you've got more willpower then me, the bargains are great!

YANBU. I bought 40 Cadbury's Freddo bars to go in goody bags for DS party next week, and I have eaten at least 10. I resisted them for about 10 hours before tucking in. DS and DH do not know this blush

I would never last from September till Christmas. It isn't humanly possible.

lol i do this so i dont buy any chocs until december, even if they are on offer as i'd eat them and end up buying more.
