Thirteen Chocolates Champs

We dedicate these champs to Dave Wanda over Here, there and back at Groundhog Mountain. Dave’s birthday is the 18th and Wanda’s the 19th of October, a perfect match for each other. Head over there to congratulate them!

[Hove over to enlarge & read the birthday wishes!]

This is 13 of our best chocolate shots from the Chocolate Festival last weekend. Hours of delicious chocolate to be stunned of, drool over - and taste! Some one throw me a big towel!!!

    A chocolate festival? Wow, I know a few people that would flock over there immediately – even with there being enough choc in Belgium for all. Does it have a site?

    Lifecruiser: There were quite a lot of Belgian choc there of course, we love your choc! But, no sorry, no site and that’s really bad I think :-(

    OH. My. Gawd.

    It isn’t fair to wave all that arround. I literally had to slurp to keep from drooling.

    My TT is up.

    Lifecruiser: I know, maybe I should have put up a towel there too? *lol*

    I’m sorry…I’m afraid I’ve drooled all over your very nice blog. ;) I especially like those blue candies, since blue is my favorite color!

    YUMMY! :-9 That got my mouth watering. Haha, I’m a chocoholic myself. :P What are those blue things?

    Happy Thursday! :)

    Lifecruiser: “Caribbean, A colorful piece in shape of taste, look and originality. The crispy feeling comes from crushed cocoabeans, with a nutty and slightly bitter feeling. Dark Rhum gives a rich and strong character, the melass sugar is contributing to the fruitiiness…..”

    mar SPAIN said:

    omg, I need to make more coffee ! I love chocolate muffins! and dark (bitter) chocolate. Mmmmm

    Lifecruiser: Thanks for clearing that out, I culdn’t find the word muffins in the dictionary, it just said cupcakes! For me, my favorite is white or light chocolate.

    We finally recovered from the case of Dom you sent over just in time to begin celebrating Wandas birthday. I can’t tell you how much your birthday wishes mean to Wanda and I. And the chocolate….yummy. It’s wonderful to have such good friends like the Lifecruisers and I only wish you and all your blog buddies as much happiness as my darling Wanda and I. Thank you.

    Lifecruiser: Thank yourselves for being the good fellows you are, you’re so worth it. We love your always so witty comments over here, which lightens up our days :-) Once again: CHEERS TO YOU!

    Barb UNITED STATES said:

    Great pictures, and it makes me hungry for chocolate, which I do not eat all that much, although I love it. #1 and #3 (the shoe) are great.

    Check out my TT.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, they are the more unusual ones. I like the color of the colored ones, but not their shapes. Too plain.

    Denise UNITED STATES said:


    BTW: My boobs hurt every time I visit your blog! :lol:

    Lifecruiser: Mine too! Imagine that, every day!

    Beth UNITED STATES said:

    My TT is up. I so wish I could have chocolate now- I’m craving it after viewing the pics!

    Lifecruiser: Maybe it was a bit cruel of me ;-)

    Norma UNITED STATES said:

    I will resist. I will resist. I won’t even look!

    Thanks for your visits today and comments about allergies. Since you’re closer to my daughter’s age than mine, I’m guessing if you drop back 10-15 years you might not find hand held hair dryers and insulation in your country either. I believe it has been a gradual change, affecting children in utero.

    Lifecruiser: It must have been difficult to hit the comment button with out looking ;-)

    s@m CANADA said:

    :???: I WANT THEM ALL!!!

    Yummy, yummy!!

    Lifeccruiser: Shovel them in ;-)

  • 36

    Great. Thanks a lot. I’m stuck in the hospital. My mom took my wallet when she left last night. There’s no way I’m going to convince the caffeteria to send anything remotely chocolately good up… *sigh* And I can’t even bribe a nurse to go to the gift show when it opens now.

    I’m going to start sending nasty emails to all of my friends who didn’t send me boxes of chocolate for my hospital stay…

    Happy TT!

    Lifecruiser: What???!!! Haven’t they sent you big pilse of chocolate already?!!! Shame on them! Give them the worst of terror!!!

    Debbie UNITED STATES said:

    Now that is one chocolate trip I would love to be on! They all look so yummy! It really is one of lifes most exciting things!

    I am feeling better to day so I am trying to catch up. I really love the piture code and will play with it in a day or two. I see you have it working really good now!

    I also got a theme template from Tricia to play with. I don’t want to use it as is I want to take it apart and put it back together a bit differently. Should cover all my learning needs for PHP and CSS! LOL

    Hope you have great plans for the weekend!

    Lifecruiser: Sounds like you have something to get grip of then, with the new template design - have fun :-)

    This weekend will be a quiet one I think, since the weather is all bad, no special events giong on in the town and we’re having a lot of parking problems since they’re doing roadworks around our streets. We may have to attend a late birthday party, we’ll see about that.

  • 38

    Whoa! Chocolate overload!! And I’m a self-confessed chocoholic too.


    Lifecruiser: Yes, so many seems to be chocoholics, maybe it’s the new drug addiction ;-)

  • 39

    I’m a day late, but glad I stopped by! Nothing like seeing some chocolate to make my morning get off to a good start! Thank you!

    Lifecruiser: You’re welcome, I hope you didn’t got too much craving for it :-)

    Oh my gawd, I’ve died and gone to heaven lol. Those chocolates are gorgeous. I remember visiting a chocolate factory once.. and honestly there was that much chocolate sampling, I couldn’t eat it for 6 months lol

    Mandy x

    Lifecruiser: He he, I know the feeling, if i had been younger and not so old and wise (lol) I would probably experienced the same now! Soooo much delicious chocolate!!!!
