Count me as one who has the tendency to lose control with chocolate too. Honestly it's best if I just don't start. I say once again, it's addiction, pure and simple.

I do much better with treats when I make my own, so at least there's some nutrition there. I keep chocolate chips around for whenever I make cookies, and sometimes I have "sugar amnesia" and I think that I can treat myself to a few tbsp of chocolate chips in a cute little cup, and it makes me sick EVERY TIME, but I still do it occasionally. Weird.

Yesterday, as I was shopping at Costco I stopped in front of the Almond Roca toffee display. Next to it was a lady doing a demo on some other product and she said, "Those are really good, but I won't buy them because I'll eat the whole bag." I told her that is why I won't buy a lot of items because I, too, end up eating the whole bag.

She told me of a time when she bought 2 pounds of See's Candy, then visited a friend and together they ate the 2 pounds of candy in one sitting. The next morning when she woke up, her eyes were swollen shut, she was puffy all over, her head ached. She got scared and called her doctor. Her doctor told her that she was suffering from the toxic effects of chocolate.

Chocolate Toxic? I think I ate that much of See's all by myself in the past. Whooeee! I consider myself fortunate that I did not have those symptoms. On the positive note, that binge I had took me way past my bliss point and the next time I went to See's, I decided it was not as good as I remembered. I have not had it for almost a year now and do not miss it one bit.

However, that lady's story will be on my mind next time I am dealing with a temptation. Same with a lot of processed foods, sure they may taste good, but chances are it is not good for us.
