As much as the Partner thinks I love chocolate, and I do buy truckloads of chocolate back home to Singapore when I am overseas, chocolate doesn’t always hit the spot for me. I think I’m a carbo kind of person. When the cravings strike, it’s maggi mee and potato chips that I think of. Sometimes, I do feel like I need to eat a piece of chocolate, but I still feel as if I need/want something more.
Lately, I discovered a way to solve this problem. I was at Marks & Spencers and I saw they had this Extremely Chocolatey Milk Chocolate Rounds. It’s shortbread cookies covered in extremely thick and chocolatey milk chocolate. And when I say extremely thick, I do mean that. Don’t think I’ve come across any other brand in the supermarket that sells something like this. They even have a dark chocolate version. I had one earlier today and it tastes damn good. My mood was lifted instantly.
But I think the most ultimate snack for me would be the chocolate covered potato chips. I’ve only ever tried those at Royce once. They were damn good too, but not cheap. Now I regret even bringing up this topic because now I will most likely go buy some tomorrow at Raffles City.
I think I once read somewhere that men crave for salty snacks whereas women crave for sweet snacks. What sort of snacks do you crave?
By the way, try to avoid chocolate that doesn’t melt in your hand. Chocolate naturally melts at body temperature. If it doesn’t, it means that additives have been added to prevent it from doing so. Notice the chocolates you buy from Europe melt into a gooey mess if you leave it out in the open? Chocolates originating from tropical asia tend to have these additives so I avoid those chocolates whenever possible.
