We took a mini road trip on Sunday to the Lindt Chocolate Factory Outlet Store in Mississauga. It's probably an hour and twenty minute drive from where we live, so not exactly just around the corner. Wagjag had a coupon for got $30 worth of product for $15. So I thought we would go and get the kiddies their Easter chocolates.
Now for anyone who is a new follower, I am not a greedy person unless it's to do with chocolate and that is when I am known NOT TO share!! I am a picky chocolate eater though and will only eat specific brands like Cadbury's or Lindt and I will not touch dark chocolate. Just looking at dark chocolate gives me a migraine. Though I do enjoy After Eights (in very small quantities), as there is nothing better than mint and chocolate, other than orange and chocolate.
Did I mention I LOVE chocolate. Just in case you didn't hear that, I LOVE chocolate!!
It turns out our kids and dh are also picky chocolate eaters and prefer certain brands as well. When the kids were little and were given cheap chocolate Easter Eggs more often than not we ended up throwing them out, as no one would eat them. We are used to British chocolate and it is a lot creamier than the American and Canadian brands. So there is no point what so ever skimping on pennies when it comes to chocolate for them.
One thing Lindt is famous for is their Easter Bunnies:
Look at them all stacked up here:
I picked up this little lot:
That cost me a total of $25.71 with taxes, that included the $15 Wagjag coupon, so an extra $10.71. Now lets hope there are some left for the kids for Easter; I'm not promising (wink, wink!) I did get a sample of the Lindt Milk Chocolate Irish Cream Truffle, not my cup of tea, very artificial flavouring.
After we left there we decided to have lunch in Applebee's in Brampton. It's been years since we have eaten in that restaurant chain.
They had a special where you have an appetizer and two mains for $25.
We decided to have the spinach dip, was a bit runny and not enough cheese, otherwise it was fine.
We both then had Chicken Oriental Salad as our main. I had started mine before I realized I hadn't taken a photo.
Dh had a Pepsi, and I had water to drink, so with tip and taxes it came to around $35 and made a pleasant change. That salad took us ages to eat, plenty of roughage there to keep us regular that's for sure...LOL
So all in all a good day and Easter is more or less taken care of now.
