Chocolate Mood

"Once you consume chocolate, chocolate will consume you."

Yeah! That's right... I really had a great mood for chocolate bars this past days, I eat lots of it. When I was in the office, its my substitute to coffee and I munch more for my midnight snacks. You cant blame me, everybody loves chocolate. I love milk chocolates or waffle covered with caramel and chocolates.
