Chocolates, I'm addicted to it, but the addiction is seasonal. I cannot resist milk chocolates (Ferreror Rocher), but was never a fan of Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate except Hershey's Cookies & Cream. It is just so amazing how these sinful bites could satisfy one's hunger. I mean, duh, saturated fats, hundreds of calories in a tiny piece, what more could your body ask for?

Ferreror Rocher, an absolutely delicious treat, i do treat myself to a box every once in a while to satisfy my sinful cravings.

Consisting of a smooth silky and rich chocolate center encased inside a round wafer shell which has been rolled in smooth milk chocolate that has crushed nuts in it until thickly coated, all of this is wrapped in a gold foil wrapper which sits lovely in a brown and gold paper casing and this all sits in rows in the lovely clear plastic tub they come in.

These really do taste fantastic, the chocolate, wafer, nut and middle all mixed together in your mouth is an experience of great luxury.

"In general, chocolate contains alkaloids such as theobromine and phenethylamine, which have physiological effects on the body. It has been linked to serotonin levels in the brain. Scientists claim that chocolate, eaten in moderation, can lower blood pressure. Dark chocolate has recently been promoted for its health benefits, including a substantial amount of antioxidants that reduces the formation of free radicals, though the presence of theobromine renders it toxic to some animals, such as dogs and cats."

All goods should always be taken in moderation. You read me?

My another addiction, well, not exactly addiction, is whisky. One that is so smooth and tasty. I've always liked Glenfiddich and Gentleman Jack. It goes really well with Coke or even on its on. Chocolate and Whisky, what a fantastic match!
