It's pretty darn wonderful - it's replaced pralines & cream as my new favourite. I love the fact that it's dark chocolate in it, like you say - not too sweet.

I will eat almost anything, at least once anyway. A very few things I do not like, but would eat at a push - like anything aniseed-tasting and Mopane worms. I would struggle to eat dog, cat, and monkey meats, and probably a few others.
I can live with myself when I eat creatures that have been crammed alive into a box and left to suffocate, or have been eviscerated while alive and conscious - that's all fish; I've even eaten live (raw) oysters. I would not knowingly eat anything that if not farmed was not from a sustainable source - so no shark fins, no tiger or rhino bits, and now no tuna as no tuna population is fished sustainably.
People are odd about food - although I eat fish, I would have difficulty eating whale mostly due to the horrendous method of capture (the sole reason the UK opposes all whaling, rather than just whaling of endangered species - there is no humane method of capture)

Isobel it is amazing! I only buy Haagen Dazs when it's on offer and I got a tub when it first came out. Lasted two days! Then didn't get any for ages, ocado have it on offer now so have freezer full! I think it's the best, it's not too sweet which I love. Can't stop eating once you start tho

I hope you are feeling strong, as the nuts are really tight and it feels very stiff. Lets hope your wrench is big enough Said Bearman
There is a cure for that - hot oil applied with a toothbrush to clean the residue - then WD40 - liberally used will free any tight nuts - later - the use of a Monkey Wrench is to be recommended - if your Cistern were kept clean and germ-free you would have no trouble with your Ball-Cock nor the nuts - they would not become tight - I advocate the use of Quality Bleach in the main Cistern - I never have grief from MY plumbing

Dark Chocolate Kendal Mint Cake, made by the George Romney company, is a particular favourite of mine. The manufacturers name is indeed from the portrait painter to the nobility. He is most famous for his various representations of Emma, Lady Hamilton. The Lady made infamous for her involvement with a certain Horatio, Admiral Nelson.

Mint + chocolate = bliss.

Chocolate-covered Kendal mint cake is really good. Too good. That's why I don't buy it very often.

No problem, they do do a chocolate covered version, but it has never appealed to me.
And yes, it is used in mountain climbing, especially Everest.
Because it is essentially pure sugar, it brings lots of energy

Thanks for that link. I had no idea what Kendal Mint Cake was, and heard it mentioned on the TV the other day, saying it's not a cake. Rather like calling a house "The Elms" when it's surrounded by it's sugar, and more sugar, and mint oil. Well I suppose it would be refreshing if you were mountain-climbing or hiking or whatever. Is it chocolate covered, and if not, why not? LOL

Spock, I,ve suffered with depression on and off for many years now. Not seriously debilitating stuff, thank The Lord, but just enough to make me feel very low some days and lethargic losing interest in all the things that I enjoy most which just makes it worse. You feel very isolated at times and feel as if everyone and everything is against you. That,s why I like this forum, because we don,t know each other on a personal level we can be ourselves and within reason speak how we feel and say what we think without too much comeback. We support one another if needed, tease each other, swap stories, tell tall tales and generally muck about, it,s good to be part of this and I know you think I,m getting at you, but it,s. not meant to be malicious, it,s just that having made very strong statements , you then refuse to back them up and being the nosey person I am it,s very frustrating cos I want to know how you feel and what you think. So please keep posting and stick it to us if you want,haha.
Spock you rock!!!you,re a tough little cookie I
