The road to obesity is paved with bars of Dove chocolate. Creamy, milky sweet, melt in your mouth, heavenly bars of Dove chocolate.

Well I have officially screwed my eating schedule up. I imagine this is something like when infants get days and nights confused, except I'm confusing unconscionable amounts of junk food with nutritious and delicious meals.

It all started two weeks ago when I brought home my first bag of Dove promises (or really, a couple of weeks before that, when I discovered that Dove chocolate is the American branding for my absolutely favorite British Galaxy chocolate). Inside the purple wrapping of each square of lusciousness is a "promise," which is a cross between a fortune cookie and a self-help mantra, but is really a marketing ploy if we're being honest. Especially the ones that say "Enjoy a chocolate moment with a friend" and "Eating chocolate is like giving yourself a big hug" and "Chocolate makes everything a little better." And just in case you're starting to feel guilty and a little puffier around the waist, they've thrown in a genial "Go easy on yourself." Apparently Satan is their copywriter.

Now we're to the point where I'm eating cupcakes for dinner. Today I seriously considered eating a Reese's cup for lunch. But logic prevailed and I ate some yogurt and granola with a cuppa Earl Grey instead.

Guys, I don't know what's going on. But I need help. And fiber.

seem to be going through that faze at the moment myself. I had the biggest piece of Lemon Merginue Pie (warm with a bit of cream) with a cup of tea for my breakfast at 10am yesterday morning. Did I feel guilty - not one bit. Felt a tad sick though.

I hear you, I could not stop eating Monday night. It was like I was on drugs or something. I mean, that's what I've heard. Ahem.

Dove chocolate is the best tasting bargain chocolate. And the ice cream - is amazing.

I'm more of a cadburys man myself. Mind you, dove is a brand of soap over here

Funny enough, Dove is a soap here as well. Which is perhaps why I prefer the "Galaxy" label to the "Dove" one.

That dang Satan is definitely in advertising. Oh, and chocolate.
