Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Chocolates I Have or Want
Some days, I just need chocolate more than others. I won't go into the reasons why, other than to say if I could, I would get rid of the reason because I'm never going to have children. Today, the craving for chocolate has overtaken me. So, today's Thursday Thirteen is all about chocolate. The first 6 are varieties that are currently on my desk, thanks to the basket of candy I keep handy (I don't really eat that much - but I get a lot of visitors at my desk, because everyone knows I have a candy basket). The next seven are what I wish were on my desk.
  1. Nestle Crunch Heart: part of my hubby's Valentine's Day gift, I've eaten the other two. This is the last one, and I'm saving it. I'm not sure what for.
  2. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup: No, I will never put this in my mouth. But I actually have a couple in my candy basket because they were in a mixed bag that I bought. This is the one piece of chocolate on my desk that I will not fight over today.
  3. Dove Smooth Milk Chocolate with Caramel: Oh my gosh. I need a private moment when I eat one of these.
  4. Hershey's Nugget of Special Dark Mildly Sweet Chocolate with Chocolate Mint Truffle Filling: this is hidden in my cabinet. I have one left. It is for emergency purposes only. I bought a bag of these on sale after Christmas and put them in my basket. As soon as I tasted one, I pulled them all out of the basket and hid them in my desk. These are not given away.
  5. Hershey's Kisses: Several are left over from my Valentine's Day bag. I'm not a big Kiss fan. But it'll do in a pinch.
  6. Thin Mint Cookies: these are the real deal, Girl Scout cookies. Oh My God, I live for February when I get my box of Girl Scout cookies. I hate peanut butter, so the Tagalongs are just Thin Mints that got messed up. Thin Mints are god's gift to coffee. And me.
  7. Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Therapy™ - Chocolate ice cream with chocolate cookies and swirls of chocolate pudding. I would need more than one private moment if I had a bowlful of this right now. I would need an entire evening. I am craving this so badly right now... (but I think it might only be available in their ice cream shops, because it's not listed in their flavor locator on their website. Yes, I went and looked after I thought about it for...oh, about 2 seconds.)
  8. Chocolate Cheesecake: I don't ever need a reason to crave cheesecake. The craving is just a part of life.
  9. Chocolate Milk: In a fit of weakness, I bought one for breakfast yesterday morning. Now it's all I can think about drinking.
  10. Pan au Chocolate: This is what I ate for breakfast every morning in France. I want to go back to France NOW.
  11. Twix Bar: crunchy, creamy and wonderful all in the same bite.
  12. Lindt Truffle, any variety will do (except for the white chocolate).
  13. Oreo Tallcake from Ruby Tuesday's: Well, they used to be called Oreo Tallcakes, now I think they're just Chocolate Tallcakes - which probably means the sandwich cookie is no longer Oreos. Who cares when there's that much chocolaty goodness in one bowl?

That was me..grrrr did I mess up. Sorry. I have chocolate on the brain now. I NEED some chocolate right now. As my daughter would say "That would feel me better"
Thursday Thirteen has come to an end.
I have enjoyed my visits here and consider us friends.
Thank you for sharing your thirteens with me.
The comments you left me filled me with glee.
It is hard to believe it is really true.
I am trying very hard to not be blue.
Happy TT'ing!
