Chocolate Dreaming

Don’t know about you but these looked pretty darn good at Costco.


“Chocolate Dream”


Chocolate cream, whipped cream, and chocolate cookie.  


Now, how could that be bad?


Dreaming chocolate…


It reminds me of the other day when I saw someone daydreaming.


I said to him, “Are you okay?”


He replies, “I am far away!”


It sounded good, so I said, “Can you take me with you?”


Got a good laugh from him.  😉

Favorite Chocolate Pastries

So these are my favorite chocolate pastries. 


They are liked over-sized or really supersized Rugelach. 


When these come out of the oven, the soft, hot pastry dough interspersed with overflowing, dripping layers of chocolate are unbelievable!


This mound of chocolate pastries is from Mahane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem. 


OMG, I can’t wait to visit again and have one (or more) of these–totally lose all self control! LOL  😉

Revolting Bug Food

So this is the latest food items in modern supermarkets.


It says:


“Eat Bugs”


Bugs are a source of high protein.  

Crunchy too. 


The ones above were Cheddar Cheese Crickets!


There was also Chile-Lime Crickets (with Pumpkin Seeds) and Dark Chocolate Crickets (with Amaranth Seeds).

Then came the BBQ and Honey Mustard Crickets 

 

And to top it all of some Salt and Pepper Mealworms.

OMG folks, we have gone back to the Stone Ages eating this crap. 


Or maybe this is all that will be left when Armageddon finally comes.  😉

Fav Ice Cream

So this is one of my absolute favorite ice creams. 


Soft chocolate swirl ice cream topped in a hard chocolate shell that literally melts in your mouth. 


OMG, this is to die for.


This is not something you get every day…it’s a special treat. 


They have this ice cream locally in the mall, and sometimes I just go there, literally, just a taste of this. 


Usually, I get the small and then share this, but even that is too much really. 


It is like a meal in and of itself. 


So rich, creamy, cold, and chocolatey flavorful. 


Who needs caramel (sitting next to it) when you have chocolate!


Love it, love it, love it.  


Yum, yum, yum.  😉

Worst Passover Cake Ever

So this has got to be the worst Passover cake ever. 


It’s definitely not kosher for Pesach. 


Not only is it made from chametz, but it’s shaped like a chazer (i.e. pig) too.


This thing would be conceptually treyf even on the best of non-Passover days. 


Does it have lard too? 


I don’t know for sure, but would it really be a pig cake if it didn’t!

This lousy cake doesn’t even have an ounce of chocolate in it–have you ever heard of a genuine dessert that tastes like the calorie count it adds up to be without chocolate? 


I’ve heard of the callous calling people a pig for eating too much cake and being fat, but making the oink oink face directly on the cake itself–and on Passover–is not only insulting, but at $28.95, it’s overpriced too. 😉

The Makings Of Cold Stone

Gotta hand it to Cold Stone Ice Cream. 

They know how it make it cold, sweet, and rich tasting. 

Here they are making the signature Cookie Doughn’t You Want Some. 

French Vanilla Ice Cream

Chocolate Chips

Cookie Dough

Fudge

Caramel

OMG, it is super premium!

And they make it right there in front of you. 

As you mouth waters for it, you almost want to just stick you finger in and snatch a bite.

Oh, the simple, sweet pleasures of life. 😉

Pirate Cake Pops

Shiver my timbers!


That really is a chocolate eye patch. 


And a frosting with sprinkles head scarf.


This pirate’s brain is vanilla cake!


What a Monday morning treat.


I’m smiling and hope you are too. 😉

People Nutrition

This is an risque t-shirt this lady is wearing.


It’s a big nutrition label. 


And she’s wrapped in it!


I’m not sure if this is a gag or fashion statement or even a sexual thing.


Is she advertising that she’s like the food?


What was really funny though is by her butt…it says 


“Moschino chocolate tastes good.”


Maybe that should be a black box warning!


Uh, this is way too much information for me. 😉

A New Type Of Chocolate Chips

chips

Ok, dieting is hard enough with all highly processed food out there these days. 


And everything is carbs, carbs, and more carbs…it’s literally poison for the body. 


But when you go into the store and see Lays chocolate covered potato chips…this just brings you to the verge of sin. 


The top are milk chocolate covered potato chips, and the bottom ones are dark chocolate covered ones. 


Choose your poison?


This is definitely a new type of chocolate chips…Hershey’s eat you heart out. 


I told my wife pleadingly, “Can’t I just taste one?” 😉
