Twilight Obsession.

No, not that Twilight. This Twilight.

So, yeah, I told y'all I cheated on Moo Goo last night. I indulged in a glass of red wine and a big chunk of Ghirardelli's Twilight Delight after dinner. It was a one time thing, so no worries. I hadn't let myself have any chocolate in like a month, so this was pretty killer. I have found a decent gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate bar. But I said, screw it... I'm going for my favorite tonight. And I did!

Now I am not really big on sweets generally. Give me a dessert menu and there will maybe, maybe be one item on there I'd eat. Brownie Sundae with hot fudge? Uh, no thanks. New York Cheesecake? I'll pass. But a good piece of dark chocolate is like a little slice of Heaven to me. And I've tasted lots of dark chocolate in my life's mission to find the best dark chocolate out there. I'm not through, but for now, the best out there (that I've come across) hands down is Ghirardelli's Twilight Delight. It's just perfect. We had a good time last night, Twilight and I. But it was a one time thing. I'm in a serious relationship with Moo Goo... so we shall never speak of this again, OK Twilight? I'll call you when I'm a free woman. Don't call me.

I love dark chocolate too. I will have to try this one. I love the Dark Chocolate bar from Newman's Own but the only place I have found it is Whole Foods.

Jill said...

I am so trying that at some point. My splurge? Vegan chocolate chips from whole foods. No Dairy! =) They are delish.

Good for you!! You deserved it. I think you need to treat yourself once in a while. Good for the soul.

I'm glad to know even Buford Betty "cheats" (even though I hate that word because it implies it was wrong, when it wasn't!) once in a while. ;) Man, I WISH I didn't love sweets. I've been away from desserts (not all sugar - still have it in some things and still eat fruit, just no cake, ice cream, cookies, etc.) I am shocked about how much of it I was eating without realizing it. Even though I track what I eat through my Weight Watchers app, I am bad about just looking at points-value sometimes and not watching the overall health of my diet. Not. good. Your Moo Goo diet is inspirational to me - we're eating different things for different reasons, but you prove to me that you can do anything you put your mind to do!

Julie - I hear you on the tracking. I just track by calories (vs. WW pts, but same concept), but half the reason I do is to monitor my intake of vitamins and fruits and veggies. Because if I don't pay attention, I totally do not get the stuff I need. I have to be super intentional about it. It is hard!!! Keep it up, girl!

Good for you for enjoying a little Twilight! Mr. P put a bar of that in my stocking last Christmas and it was divine!

That sounds delightful! I love dark chocolate so much. Will have to try some of this!

YUM! Hope the hubs first week at work went well. I'm sure you both feel as though such a huge weight has been lifted. I'll be interested to see how you adjust the budget with all that extra moolah ;) haha

Love that Twilight! It's amazing how when you have the good stuff, a much smaller amount is satisfying.
