No, you don't have to thank me.......okay you can if you want!!

I think you know that I am willing to taste test anything that has to do with chocolate, as you know I am awfully concerned about what sort of chocolate you eat and wouldn't want anyone to have an adverse reaction to it.

So because of that I bought the following couple of packets of chocolate biscuits.  One because they reminded me of the chocolate biscuits from Britain, two they are new out and I haven't seen them before, oh and three they were in flavours I like.

Firstly the crunchy caramel biscuits, well I actually didn't like these much.  Okay if they were the only things to eat, then yes I would eat them, but the chocolate tasted like cheap cooking chocolate to me.  So I probably won't buy these ones again, although dh liked them.  So I guess he'll be taking one in his bait/lunch pail every day.

Now as I am a chocolate/mint fan I knew unless the chocolate was really bad I would love these, and guess what they are YUMMY!!!  The mint filling sort of reminds me of the middle of Aero bars without the bubbles.  These are a winner..........must ask my friend who is a buyer for Loblaws, if they are bringing out a chocolate/orange flavour, then all my dreams would have come true...LOL

Love Molly to bits, but her lastest thing is to get up just after 5am wanting out for a pee and possibly a poop, I don't check. Meanwhile I can't get back to sleep, so by mid afternoon I am on my knees, bone weary.

So here she is laying in her basket.

Here she is looking sleepy........I wonder if it has something to do with getting up too early????

Finally we have a few of these birdies coming to the bird feeder. I think it is a Black Capped Chickadee. One swooped past Molly, and lets just say Molly wasn't impressed.

"O"Come All Ye Faithful" by The Celtic Women, a beautiful rendition of a classic with lyrics so you can all sing along.

i have brushed my teeth ready for bed but now I am thinking chocolate and biscuits! Gill!!!!

Molly and 5am, gesh I thought all that ended when your kids grow up. Mental note - no dog when i finally get to the stage of having a full nights sleep. ;-)

I love your picture at the top, is that at your place?

You're a pal for throwing yourself on the sword for us Gill. Can't tell you how much I appreciate that. BUT, can't take all this chocolate talk any more. I'm heading to World Market to get some Cadbury's Flakes. Molly sure looks cute and comfortable and I bet she falls right to sleep after coming back inside after her morning constitutional. I suspect you don't? What we do for the love of our animals. Tthose were a great set of photographs.

Molly looks right smart in her bed. That's where I'd love to be right now. I'm not a chocolate fan however hubby and the kids are. Will have to try these out.

Got the envelope today...thanks!!

I am trying NOT to indulge but what the heck!

As our youngest Granddaughter told us, several years ago, when it was getting close to her birthday and we asked what she would like. She's nine now. She named off a few things and then said, and of course some good chocolate. So we've all ready trained her to know the difference between good and bad chocolate. LOL By the way, the breakfast plates looked like food for a log splitter. LOL No one should have been hungry for lunch.

Chocolate my favorite.
Thanks for the PC info. I'm always tempted to try new items but now I have a heads up.
I know I will gain a least 5 to 10 pounds over the holidays ( you may have saved me a couple)
Molly looks so cute in her bed .
