Reese Cups, Rolos, and Hershey Kisses, Oh My

I've made the mistake before. Buying miniature hershey treats to "cut back" on my chocolate eating. Deciding that THIS time, I was only going to have just one at a time.

And yet, after a whole trip home from Target pumping myself up for this new dieting tactic, I just justified having multiples...multiple times....in one hour of chocolatey pleasure.

Here is a glimpse inside my brain- the following is a true story.....

"Well, I can't JUST eat a reese's, I have to eat a hershey kiss and a rolo too. I don't want to hurt their feelings." (3 down)

"Wow- those three were good, but I really want to end with a peanut butter taste lingering in my mouth, so I must eat another Reese cup." (4th down)

"I wonder if I could suck on a Rolo until it melts." (5th down)

"Whoops- I forgot and nibbled the Rolo. I better try the game again." Three rolos later..... (6th, 7th, 8th down)

"Hmm, I haven't eaten many Hershey Kisses....I better have one, two, three more" (again, why am I afraid to hurt chocolate's feelings??) (9th, 10th, and 11th down)

"I'll just eat one more......of each." (12...13...14...)

"I didn't eat a Reese cup last, so I better eat one more." (15th down)

And this, dear friends, is how I ate not one, not two, but 15 miniature chocolates in one hour. Attempt 5,629 of dieting tips and tricks.......complete and utter failure. Maybe I'll try exercising tomorrow.

Actually, I better finish off the bag of treats so they aren't around to tempt me tomorrow.....I'll be on my way then.


  1. That's great! I just don't bring them into the house.
