Chocolate should be eaten, not read

From the wrapper of a Dove Promises chocolate, Valentine's Edition:

"Sleep under the stars tonight."

Thank you, o chocolate, but this is February, as you well know, this being your special pink Valentine's Day set of wrappers-'n-messages. Most of us in the Northern Hemisphere, should we sleep under the stars, would freeze.

Unless, of course, they mean "Bag yourself some celebrity lovers (and be a bottom)," in which case, nice work if you can get it.

That's the best thing I've heard anyone say about Valentine's candy in a while.

Candy always deserves discussion, I say. Especially when it's trying to talk to us.

Yeah, most of the ones on the Dove wrappers are pretty banal, so I assume they meant nothing truly amusing. But we can have fun with them anyway.

Brrr! I thought that groundhog forecast(ed?) an early spring.

Mine said "Find your passion." I thought I already had.

Namely, dark chocolate? :) Well, that's one of mine, anyway.

Hmm, I'll take one Orlando Bloom, one Johnny Depp and one Jason Isaacs to go, please. Nothing else will make me go sleep outside. -30 Celsius. Eeegh.

Sounds pleasant--the boys, I mean. :) Heavy, though. They may have to take turns or you'd be suffocated.

Well, a generous interpretation would be, one doesn't even have to be a bottom or engage in Nookie. One just has to find stars (plural, two per chocolate fancier) and sleep underneath them. For warmth. It's me for a blanket of Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman tonight.

It's true--you could just sleep beneath them for no particular specified reason, or for warmth; a variation of the "three dog night" concept. :)

I really like the dark chocolates by Dove. They have some of the most amusing little sayings inside the wrapper....although a few of them have actually been inspiring. ("Be fearless" is one of my favourites!) :-)

The chocolate is some of my favorite, in the "not too expensive" world. And yes--no living in fear! :)

Man, I went over to the drugstore and the Target this morning (they're in the same shopping center) to snap up Valentine candy on discount, but it was already moved out to make room for the Easter stuff! Can you believe?

On the other hand: mm, Cadbury Mini Eggs!
