I created a monster

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

A Lindt milk chocolate truffle monster.

I discovered these little balls of deliciousness some time ago and occasionally ... occasionally ... indulge in them. I feel proud and happy when I can walk through the gift shop at our hospital and not be drawn to them.

My mistake was, I introduced two of my equally sweet-loving co-workers to them and they are equally in love.

So my director feeds my addiction. A $5 bill buys 11 of them at our gift shop. That's about 814 calories, if my math is right. So I'll take his $5 and buy 11 of 'em, and keep two for myself. Sometimes, like last week, he wanted me to go to the gift shop but I was strong ... I said Not today. Maybe Monday.

Yesterday, he came through our cubicle farm with a bag of truffles, passing them out like, well, like candy. I cannot turn these things away if they're placed near me, I'm telling you.

Today I've been doing great with my calories. I'm right in range. The three of us had a late afternoon meeting. My other colleague walked in late because she'd been coming from a funeral. Don't you know, she walked in with a paper bag full of truffles! OMG.

I'm not freaking out about this, but I absolutely cannot take up a daily Lindt milk chocolate truffle habit. I'm not going to buy any for a while, and I'm going to do my best to not indulge when I'm face to face with them.

    Oh, no! My favorite little nemesis nibbles, enrobed in chocolate - the Lindt truffle!

They're making them in PEANUT BUTTER now...and I have some in an upstairs closet! I have to have them far away from the kitchen so I can pounce on 'em, say, just twice a month...

You're a woman of exquisite taste! They ARE GOOOOOD! emoticon

    They seem to be in full attack mode, using cunning wiles to catch you. This sounds like war, my friend, war!

Be brave and gather together your armaments and fight the good fight. Truffles should never be so ubiquitous.

    Life would be so much easier if food wasn't allowed in the workplace, wouldn't it? But, in the real world you have to deal the chocolate truffles. I feel your pain!

    Brutal! one of my coworkers has a candy box on their desk. It is almost always full.

My trick is to fill it with things other people like, that I do not like very much, so that I will not eat them. Like peanut butter cups. muahahahah. emoticon

Good luck! It took me a LONG time to stay out of the candy box, but after months of resisting, or telling myself it was "off limits", I do pretty well now! You'll get there!

    I love those things! Right now I'm afraid to be around chocolate. Stay strong.

    Nothing makes a treat more precious than waiting for it until it is truly a treat!

    You are doing awesome by not having them all the time. And when you plan to have them once in a while they will taste that much better! emoticon

    I have never tried Lindt chocolate truffles and it sounds like I better steer clear of them.
I definitely don't want any more chocolate addictions. emoticon emoticon

    I love these chocolates, too! You can indulge once in awhile, but like you said, probably not daily. Good luck! I know you can do it!
