Umm, I have one put aside for a special treat this evening after dinner :P There is nothing like a Wispa. Have you seen the new 'BitsaWispa'? It a bag of little Wispas and just the job for a little after-dinner treat. If I really try I can make a bag last a whole week. I really do have to try though...

Nah, go for the hard stuff. Rack up lines of cocoa off a mirror, with a ten bob note. :P

Well, according to articles to articles Robyn has found, dark chocolate is reckoned to work wonders with ME. 45g per day is allegedly a guaranteed cure according to some articles to be found in Internetland.

Just been shopping and bought a load of finest Tesco 85% proof stuff...

Now to see if it really does work....

I eat that high cocoa chocolate now. I used to much through entire Dairy Milk bars and large packets of Minstrels far too quickly. Trouble was if I just had one row, once I had put it away in a drawer it would play on my mind and I would struggle to concentrate so would eat the rest of it so I didn't get distracted. The downside of that is that I felt TERRIBLE afterwards with all the sugar and things.
With that high cocoa chocolate, I find its not moreish but I still get the satisfaction of the chocolate, I can make a bar last a good 2 days :shock:

I'm a super taster, so if it's not proper milk or white chocolate it tastes far too bitter for me.

That sounds nice, but I fear it would be too sickly. Try eating 4 Milky bars, it will have a similar effect.

Let us know what happens :-)

<waits for Chris to say he loves eating 4 milkybars at a time>

I used to love Caramac. Is is still about? I still love white chocolate too.

I do find this high-proof stuff lovely too. Basically, if it's chocolate I love it :P

Bit of brilliant news today - Siany has passed her driving test first go after just four and a bit months of driving and with NO formal lessons =D> =D> =D> :-D :-D :-D :-D

Her mum is an ex-instructor and now an examiner so I guess that makes a difference along with the nearly 2,000 miles she did learning with family sitting with her . She did not conduct Siany's test though, there's a law against that; it was conducted by her boss... Sainy scored just seven minors..

I'm just a little pleased and proud!

Thanks both, just in case anyone is not sure who Siany is, she's my 17 year old youngest daughter and now solo pilot of a Nissan Pixo...
