You’re such a Tease…..r

I could not have been happier to learn that this has been invented…….

……but then I tasted it.

I was expecting the luscious smush centre that fills the delicious Malteaster Bunnies.

However, I was just met with a hard crunchy middle, filled with broken up normal Malteaser centre.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s still nice.

But if they thought this could be a year round replacement for the bunnies…. They are MISTAKEN!!!

Where is the smush?? WHERE IS IT???

College work gives me a serious case of the Fat Flanos.

I cannot stop eating this weekend.

I chose to stay home and do college work rather than go to the library because on weekends it does not stay open as late as usual.

I set up camp at the kitchen table because it has the most room (my bedroom desk looks like a disaster zone).

However, being so close to all the food has been detrimental. I’ve done more eating and snacking and nibbling than I have done work. And in the breaks of eating I have just been drinking tea. Lots and lots of sugary tea.

If it was healthy snacking that’d be ok, but it was Easter a week ago. There is chocolate everywhere. Half eaten eggs, packs of creme eggs, bunnies, chicks…. It’s all here. Ready to be devoured.

Even the weather has been decent (typical for when work needs to be done). So I thought I’d go running to counteract all the eating. But here I sit, still in my onesie, laptop open, chocolate within reach.

If I ever get diabetes college will be to blame.

Food with a face.

This is NOT a vegetarian blog entry.

I am not a vegetarian and this is not a blog about eating animals… Well not the real life type.
Rather this is about my feeling on a topic that is specific to holiday times, mostly Easter and sometimes Christmas……
The eating of chocolate animals!!!

Every Easter an array of chocolate bunnies, chicks, sheep, ducks – pretty much any type of barnyard animal you like – appear on our supermarket shelves. I have already expressed how I have always found Easter eggs to pretty to eat, well you can only imagine how I feel about chocolate animals.

Even though I’m in my 20s I still have quite a childlike outlook on this. It stems from the thought that toys have thoughts and feelings like real people (blame Toy Story if you must). Well I feel the same about the chocolate bunnies etc. They’re too cute. I’ll eat meat because by the time that gets to me it isn’t cute anymore so I don’t have to think of that like a real animal. But I can’t help myself if I see a smily chocolate bunny. I can’t eat it.

However, my cousin has come up with an interesting solution to the issue… If you can call it a solution. You must decapitate them. A swift removal of the head. A fast quick “painless” death so to speak. And I must agree its a method I somewhat agree with. So now if I am faced with food with a face such as a gingerbread man (I still can’t manage to kill the Easter bunnies) it’s straight away OFF WITH HIS HEAD. It just seems to cruel to start with the arms and legs. Butchering the poor little guy while he feels each and every bite.

So if you’re like me and struggle at Easter time, try the decapitation method. It just might make your holidays a little bit easier.
