A little chocolate dilemma.

Hi, all!

Did we hear?

Ramble of the Day

I’ve run out of chocolate. All I have is chocolate covered espresso beans, and they’re too sweet. They actually taste like a Starbucks caramel macchiato, but if it was only one sip. If you ask me, that’s a great quantity if you want that. Thing is, I don’t always want that.

I went to look for chocolate, in large quantities so I wouldn’t have to go chocolate shopping again soon. One of those big boxes might do the trick, but they don’t. I like one or two types; the Lindt bag has two dark chocolate types. It also has milk chocolate, which I’m afraid I’ll find too sweet; milk chocolate with caramel, which I know I’ll find too sweet; and white chocolate, which is a definite no. The other boxes are similar; they include multiple white chocolate options and one even includes marzipan, something whose qualities I’ve never been convinced by.

It turns out I need a box of dark chocolates, which means I’ll have to do a bit more searching. I’ll admit that I’ve barely done any looking, and that I’ll take any recommendations I can find. All I know is that it’s 10:11p and that I wanted dark chocolate, and that I don’t have outside of almonds covered in it, but it doesn’t hit the spot right now. I’ll probably just have a glass of milk instead.

tl;dr: I need some chocolate, and I’ve got to look for it.
