the rules of chocolate!!

this cool gift card box - yes it's a card that holds a king size bar of chocolate inside it! - was made by Sandra Mason who is my swap sister for the 12 days of Christmas over on Crafters Anonymous site. We had a theme for every day and yesterday was day three and the theme was 'something yummy' - well Sandra knew I am a CHOCOHOLIC so she created this cool card box. Inside are a list of the 'rules of chocolate' which I have typed out below - they are all PERFECT!! You would be surprised that the chocolate is currently in my fridge due to the hot weather (today it's 27oC here in Auckland with humidity ruining just below 100%!) and I haven't started on it - YET! lol tell me which one you like best!

here are the rules:

*1 if you've got melted chocolate on your hands then you're eating it too slowly!
*2 Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices, apricots & strawberries all count as fruit so eat as much as you want.
*3 Problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car? Solution: Eat it all in the parking lot
*4 Diet Tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It will take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less!
*5 a nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place - now isn't that handy!
*6 if you can't eat all of your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer, however - if you can't eat all of your chocolate at once there must be something wrong with you. Call your doctor!!
*7 if you eat an equal amount of dark chocolate and white chocolate, it's considered a balanced diet!
*8 exercise is a dirty word - every time you hear it wash your mouth out with chocolate!
*9 if not for chocolate there would be no need for control top pantyhose - an entire garment industry would be devastated - so eat more!
*10 there is no such organisation as Chocoholics Anonymous because no one wants to quit.
*11 put 'eat chocolate' at the top of your 'to do' list TODAY!! That way, you'll get at least one thing on your list done!!
*12 we aren't meant to deal with life alone - that's why God created chocolate - EAT HEARTY!!
