Have never tried the Jarrah Chocolate - is it really that good? I used to buy the Weight Watchers Chocolate which I have regularly during winter. I used to be the worst chocoholic ever. When Easter comes I buy the chocolate eggs for the kids, but I eat them and have to buy more (I only ate about 3 of their eggs last year and had to replace them!) I think my turnaround came when I realised just how much money I was wasting! Now I buy the snack bags and have one every couple of weeks!!

Yeah the Jarrah's are delish! I just have mine with water and find that it doesn't need any milk or anything. I have the Chocolate Fudge one at the moment - yum!

I look forward to Easter because it's the only time of year that you can get Cadbury Creme Eggs!! They bring back memories of when I lived in the UK and you could get them all year round!! So I always get a couple of bags of the mini ones and ration them out.. Mm yum!

I have no chocolate cravings whatsoever this week though, I don't know what's wrong with me!!! Hey - I'm not complaining though!!!

Yeah the smaller Cadbury Creme Eggs are a lot better, although they are still a little sickening!! But that's a good thing - means you don't want any more after :D

What I do, is freeze a large bag of the mini Mars Light bars. So when its life or death that I must have a chocolate, they cannot be just gobbled up.

Hope this helps,

Michelle

Wow, thats a really good idea! I might do that with my milky ways.
Does it affect the taste of the chocolate?

The other thing i do is buy really expensive chocolate (say from 'the chocolate room' or 'Max Brenner') and only have one piece. When they are that expensive i tend to enjoy them more and only eat one.

Hi Lala, freezing the chocolate doesn't alter the taste....it just makes it harder to eat quickly!! It works a treat!

maltesers... theyre just so small and yummy and it's easy to just eat the whole pack without realising it. doesn't help when small children sell them for fundraisers because they're just so cute and you can't say no hehe.
