Tonight my wife brought home some chocolate hedgehogs (brownies) from work.
She bought them from a co-worker whose child was raising funds for a school charity.
There are 8 slices in the pack, which collectively weight 450grams.
In total these things equal nearly 10,000 kilojoules (about 2,500 calories) have a whopping 145grams of total fat and 86grams of saturated fat, and 180grams of sugar.
My wife doesn't eat this sort of crap, but she knows that I can't resist it and will probably end up eating the whole lot by myself (over a week or so).
I'm always buying chocolates from fund raising drives and rationalize the purchase and eating of the stuff I buy by telling myself that it is for a good cause (buying computers for schools or whatever).
Does anybody else have the same problem as this?
If so, what do you do about it?
I'd like to throw these hedgehogs in the bin rather than eat them, but then I tell myself that it would be a waste of money and "good" food.
I do know one thing for sure, eating them certainly isn't going to help me lose weight!
What would you do?
