I remember my afternoons in my room when I am not napping – a cup of green tea with a few bites of chocolates for midday snack – the perfect refreshment after a stressful day at school. Or a happy day. Or a sad one, when no one but chocolate would make my day.
Years later and I’m still here, nibbling a Ghirardelli square (Dark chocolate with white mint, 70 calories), and I sit down here and think: My day would be incomplete without chocolate.
Just yesterday noon I went to pick up some stuff my boyfriend requested his mother to give to me while she’s here in town for vacation. When I opened the box, it was full of Ferrero’s Dark Chocolate Rondnoir balls, with almonds in them, my favorite nut. Plus a couple more Japanese mochi, dark chocolate-flavored. I promise you, though, I won’t be getting diabetes. This is why I’m stopping my munching, sitting down here, and think through chocolate I mean the reasons behind my fascination behind the dark stuff.
