The Dos and Don’ts of CHOCOLATE

For those of us who love chocolate, this picture has a certain appeal….
It’s high quality chocolate on a stick! This is a “Do”. Do put chocolate on a stick. It can be less messy when eating!
However, this chocolate on a stick quickly becomes a “Don’t”, when it is flipped over ….
Gosh, I hope Rach doesn’t get angry at me for showing her picture to the internet world. ….
Yes, this is how my daughter, Rachel, looks on a chocolate lollipop.
You might think it’s cute, eh? Sure it’s cute … someone really creative thought this idea up.
There’s a big problem with this idea, however.
Let me tell you first though …
Rachel had this chocolate lollipop sitting on her coffee table in her apartment. When hubby and I went down for her program at school, I spotted it. She told me that the student assoc. at school offered this for free.
How nice! Get your picture on some gourmet chocolate for free!
The student assoc. does nice things like this quite often free massages during finals week is another terrific idea
Rachel sat, had her picture taken, and then watched as it was printed onto the lollipop chocolate.
What to do with it now though? How would anyone find eating their face to be appetizing? She couldn’t eat it.
So Rachel kindly thought that giving it to ME would be nice. What mother wouldn’t appreciate a nice picture of their daughter?
It is a nice picture, but I will not eat my daughter’s face. It’s just wrong.
Rachel says “well, what am I supposed to do with it ?”
Enter the grandson!
He had no problem at all with eating Rachel’s face!
He adores her as much as he adores chocolate.
He’s looking for the very best first bite spot …
100_3702 I cringe as I look at this picture …
He finds it quite tasty and I guess as long as I just see the backside of this lollipop, it’s bearable to watch. However …
100_3704 Ok, he just bit into her head.
This is just so wrong and the urge right now to take candy from a baby is very strong …
I’m wondering if this is like a voodoo doll and Rachel, wherever she is at this moment, is experiencing a severe headache.
100_3706 Someday, when he is older, he’s going to read this blog and think
“wow, I can’t believe I ate Rachel’s face and enjoyed it”.
At this point, I turned the camera off. I just couldn’t stand to see my precious Rachel’s face chewed off.
Just a few seconds later, the chocolate fell off the stick and onto the floor, breaking into smaller pieces. My daughter’s mouth was quickly picked up, chewed and swallowed.
So there you have it … Chocolate on a stick can be a really good thing.
But for the sake of your loved ones, DON’T have your face printed on something that should be edible ... because no one will find it to be edible. Except grandsons.
Happy Day everyone and Happy weekend too!

Oh dear! I too, am traumaitized for life. How could you do that to sweet, precious Rachael?

Wait a minute....was it cheap chocolate or the good stuff? Andersons, Roselinds or maybe Arris? If so, than I might have to reconsider.
