Choklit; The TRUTH!

Morning All.

By now you will know I have something of a sweet tooth. I don't like dark choklit, it's too bitter for my taste. It's allegedly lower in fat than milk choklit, but even that hasn't tempted me over to the dark side. Very Understanding Hubby has long been firmly encamped on the dark side, (Although he will quickly swap sides if the darkness runs out!) because it's 'better' for you.

The other night, during a commercial break, Very Understanding Hubby was reading the nutritional information on his bar of choklit and comparing it to my unhealthy bar. Turns out, there are more calories and fat in his than in mine! :)

So, Peeps, I'm delighted to tell you:

Choklit is good for you!!

After that bombshell, it would be easy to forget there is a new Challenge over at MMCS! This week we would like to see Stars and Stripes for a chance to win some stash from Meljen's Designs. Pop over to MMCS for all the details and take a look at the faberoony DT while you're there!

LOL! love it! but then we always knew choklit was good for us didn't we? ;)
I must admit that I too go over to the dark side occasionally, I lurrrve dark choc & cherry combo.
Dave has 80%+ choc when he feels like some cos it has less sugar than nice tasting choc.

I also lurrrve this card, what a fab image! loving all the stars too...perfick! :) I've treated myself to 2 new MME pads, gertie & hattie, awaiting for their arrival *taps foot*

Keep It Sweet and Simple said...

Ahhh, you do know that calories are afraid of heights - so store your choklit on top of the fridge - the calories will jump out of the choklit to protect themselves!!

Super cute card. Love your colouring on the image. I have this tucked away somewhere and you have inspired me to get it back out.

Jane said...

Choklit may be good for you but NOT if it's kept in a big, heavy box like a shipping container that then falls on yer foot. That bloody hurts!!! Not all good huh!!

coops said...

fabulous card faye.great fun colours and i love your stars and stripes, brilliant.
oops i love dark choccy, can only eat choc at weekends though :D

xx coops xx

Donna said...

Fabby fun card and as for chocolate, dark choc has more iron in it and you supposedly eat less cos it's stronger in flavour ... yeah right!! Try Lindt dark choc with chilli - that might take you over to the dark side!! xx

Cazza said...

Wahooooo, although I always knew choklit was good for you, it always makes me feel better anyway lol!!
Fabby card hon, love the DP's and layout :o)

Quite cute! Love the star paper! I have to say I live on the dark side too! Are we still friends?!! LOL! I am a chocolate freak though! In my defense I loved milk chocolate but became allergic to dairy and had to switch sides. Now I like the dark!
