Death By Chocolate

I found this at the grocery and it followed me home.

Just so you know, here is the mathematical calculation that convinced me it was the practical thing to do:

Chocolate ice cream + chocolate bits + chocolate candy = full of win

It is, too.

Since it’s Tuesday, I’m posting at Fatal Foodies, today on the subject of dim sum.

WRITING PROMPT: What is your main character’s food weakness?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    My main character right now loves Bitter Gourd. Go figure. I only realised it after I read your prompt here. Thanks for the prompt suggestions on my blog!

      You’re welcome for the prompt suggestions. 🙂 Bitter Gourd. Now I’m intrigued.

      Cookies! I love them, too, if they’re chocolate chip and soft. No like crunchy cookies! Do NOT want! 😉

    My main character prefers salty to sweet. She gets antsy when she can see the bottom of her jar of Spanish Peanuts. She only buys them from one source…Nifty’s Nuthouse in Wichita, Kansas. (True place from my childhood. I’m like my main character. Can’t live without a salty snack!) 🙂

      Oh, popcorn! Must have popcorn! Buttery and salty. White cheddar cheese flavored. Mmmmm….

    I have to admit I never think in those terms…but I will from now on. Thanks for a great post, and making me think deeper about my characters.

    As for me? Easy. Wine and chocolate…sad but true!

    Love death by chocolate. Such a sumptuous dessert. Your tantalizing image makes me want to head to the grocery store right now!

    The characters in my current novel don’t have any food weaknesses… though now I think I may have to introduce one, since it would play really well in one particular chapter.

    I, on the other hand, succumb to ice cream on a regular basis.

      I go for months without even thinking about ice cream, then I MUST HAVE IT! I especially like ice cream with bits in it–fudge, nuts, peanut butter. Nom, nom, nom!

      It is! I only eat a little at a time, because it tastes so rich, even though it’s lower in fat than “regular” ice cream. I don’t know if the milk is lower in butterfat or what, but it’s sure good!

    Definitely sounds like the sundae for me. I tend to over-chocolatize things sometimes according to some people but it all seems fine to me.

      Over-chocolatize…? This word does not make sense. This cannot be done. 😉

    Wow, I’ve never thought of this. I’ll definitely have to in the future. My food weaknesses are… hmm… I love wine and margaritas. lol

    Who doesn’t love chocolate! It looks so yummy! I am already too much into chocolates and at a bakery nearby they offer a death by chocolate cake. Has moist dark chocolate cake, chocolate mouse, chocolate cookies and chocolate ganache! Delicious! And that is what my character’s weakness is!
