#SoCS - 25/2/17 - How?

If you'd like to take part in SoCS here's the link to all the details.  It's hosted by Linda at Life in Progress.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “how.” Start your post with the word “How.” Bonus points if you end with it too. Enjoy!

How did chocolate manufacturers come up with the idea that a bag of chocolate treats needs to be resealable?  Really?  You mean I'm not supposed to eat them all in one go?  But chocolate isn't meant to be resisted.  Well not for me anyway.  If I start on chocolate I have to finish it.  A bar, a box, a packet.  Once opened I can't reseal it and put it aside to be enjoyed later.  I want to enjoy it now.  All of it.  Even if it does seem indulgent.  Okay, greedy.  Self satisfying.  You could come up with lots of expressions designed to induce guilt.  But a resealable packet?  Sorry but that didn't work either!  

Going shopping when hungry is never a good idea but when the chocolate is right there as you wait in line for the checkout, it always seems to find its way into my basket somehow.


  1. You mean that chocolate comes in resealable packages? I never noticed...

  2. I am not a chocolate fan, from time to time black chocolate, but I never noticed resealable packages !
    I didn't participate, the word for the meme is announced so late, that I forget, because once 1 pm I close my computer and never think to open it on Fridays in the evening ! Now it's too late anyway.

  3. mmm chocolate is irresistible! :)
