Chocolate is my friend. It has seen me through good times and bad times. It sticks around long after it's eaten -- just ask my tummy.
However, I have one beef with chocolate. When you get a new bar from the store and it is stale.
I am trying to eat a Cadbury Caramello right now. It's expiration date is January 2008. But it is as waxy and crumbly as the year-expired Hershey
bars I found while in Thailand.
It's not even an imported (from the UK) Cadbury's! At least then it might have an excuse -- unseasonably hot weather on the Atlantic, or a shipping
container in full sun for two weeks.
But this particular bar was manufactured under license from Cadbury's UK, right here in the US, in Hershey, PA.
What is wrong with my Cadbury bar!?
Can a woman who is depressed not have just one thing be right? My one treat today and it's stale.
Maybe I should just send the last piece sitting in the wrapper back to the manufacturer and demand a replacement.
Er, no. Can't. I just ate it. Even bad chocolate is better than NO chocolate.
