    1 chocolate orange and a box of Cointreau liqueurs so far untouched. But plenty of mince pies have given their lives in aid of my burgeoning Piecep!

    The problem with chocolate oranges is that once you start, there is no end point apart from finishing the whole thing. Just the one this year, and I can almost smell it from where it’s sitting in the fridge.

    Almost 4kg (net) of quality street, celebrations, biscuits and toffees – oh dear. We don’t normally have choc or snacks in house.

    A tub of Quality Street has disappeared since Xmas Eve as well, plus way too much gluhwein ๐Ÿ™

    I move all my edible presents out to the garage, but it’s funny how often I need to check my bikes are ok.

    I thought we had finished all the Christmas junk food but I found a big selection box of Swizzles products and one of biscuits. Bugger.

    We had a fantastic range of chocolates in the shop which were just a bit too pricy.
    Its sell by date is fast approaching so its all come home for Christmas.
    Just when you think you can’t handle any more along comes the salted popcorn chocolate.
    Lovely.

    Screw this hiding crap in the garage or being all virtuous rubbish.

    Ram that crap down your gullet, and go mental on the bike from the 2nd January.

    I was strong. There was a veritable ‘wall’ of Sainsbury’s ‘value’ mince pies in the local store today, but I resisted. Boxes of 18 of the blighters for 25p – that’s 1.4 pence per pie!

    I had half a box of Thorntons Continentals last night whilst laying on the couch watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    That’s about three days solid pedaling at the speed I go ๐Ÿ™

    My sister sell a chocolate orange that is surrounded in stuck on malteesers then drizzled with white chocolate so it looks like a Christmas pudding.

    Humph! After reading this thread MY resolve has just caved. Currently on slice 5 6 with no sign of stopping. Best crack open the Vodka too, once it’s gone it gone and all that…

    Look closely, one of those chocolate oranges might be one of the ones with space dust in. They are amazing:-)

    One milk chocolate orange and two dark ones ๐Ÿ™‚ plus a box of after eight mints – and that’s just my haul. MsD has two huge boxes of milk tray and a box of cadburys fingers..

    My one real choccy obsession is Ferrero Roche, and I had a large tray for Christmas. Untouched, so far, but it’s whispering to me from just behind my head. Fortunately I’ve just had a pizza and I’m drinking a pint of Ringwood 49er, so the chocs don’t really go.
    Tomorrow, I think, will see the whole lot gone in one sitting…

    Yep, we did the same. Tin of roses, 2 tins of shortbread biscuits, box of maltesers, large block of dairy milk and a tin of honey roasted peanuts – all in the bin. But gratefully received none the less.

    … seriously, why not hand out at work?

    I’m not back at work for another week, there’s no way I could have held out for that long and colleagues would have moaned at me for off loading all my unwanted unhealthy crap on them.

    I would like to volunteer my address for people wanting their confectionery ‘safely disposed’ of rather than out it in the bin if so many people do this?!
