My momma always said….

“Life is like a box of choc’lits….

Caramels are acceptable.

… you better get after it with a knife so there are no gross coconut surprises.”

    Hehe…..I’m with you, sort of. I don’t know why they make so many nasty weird flavors. I’m suprised there isn’t a cheese cream.

    My favorites are orange creams in dark chocolate. Then vanilla & chocolate creams, caramels, and I would devour that candy in the left top corner of the box. It’s a coconut thing right? I don’t care for boxed coconut creams but I do like Mounds. I also don’t care for mint creams in boxes but LOVE York Peppermint patties and Junior Mints. TMI.

      Peggy -- I agree with you -- I just told my boss the other day they should make a box that is all orange/dark chocolate. Love them!

    I feel uncomfortable about you cutting or smashing open chocolates to see what’s inside. That seems very wrong to me. I feel that when eating chocolates, I must choke down the unexpected chocolate truffle ones as a testament to my love of vanilla creams.

    There should be a website where you take a picture of your box of chocolates, upload it and it displays a map of what you have in the box. Come on The Internet, how hard could that be?

    I do this every time, except if I am lucky enough to get a box of Sees chocolates. Then I just compare each piece to the guide in the back of the catalog to identify them.
