Dang it. I was in target earlier and I didn't think to look there. Maybe next time.

I loveeee firecracker! I also like the plain old sweet and salty milk chocolate. And maple bacon!

Those sound SO good! *Drives to TJ's immediately*

I ALWAYS forget about going through ebates. And of course I've spent a bunch of money at Sephora for Christmas gifts. Grrr! icon_frown.gif

Ok, sorry to be a bummer but I got a Chuao bar at Wegmans and that chocolate is just ok for me. I would not buy it again. I guess I am sort of spoiled with access to chocolates like these http://www.lunechocolat.com/The_Chocolates.html but I honestly did not think there was anything special about the Chuao. And I LOVE chocolate.

I got the box last night and I completed them this morning smh.  I snuck them into the movies and ate some of them with the fiance while watching Lincoln.

Yay. My chocopods are here.  So far I tried the bacon one and it's good. For 50-60 calories per pod they're a guilt-free treat!

post #250 of 2321
Yep yep I love them, I am not eating much sugar anymore, and their dark chocolate pods are my absolute favorite treat smile.gif I have a few bars ready to go when I finish my divine 70% + rasberries. I really do miss milk chocolate, but it's been so worth it fitting back into all my pre freshman year of college clothes, and it's only been 2 months so far.

Also while we are on the subject of chocolate, the absolute most divine chocolates i have ever had are Pierre Marcolini. I travelled a lot around Europe before college and have tried tons of chocolates, these are by far my favorites. I believe it originated in Brussels, but I got a box in the Paris location. To die for. I go on the website all the time, but I don't have the money for €30 + international shipping for a little box of chocolates.

There is a pretty decent chocolate shop in a town close by me called Boehm's. Great chocolate and always happy to support local business! Plus, another fudge store with amazeballs candied apples! I used to do employee birthdays at my last job and usually found sweet treats for my coworkers there..from homemade Mexican cocoa and mugs to the most decadent truffles and treats...
Stressed out Hospice workers+chocolate confections= a little slice of heaven/nirvana in your mouth lol... Plus, have it at home with a glass of wine? Fuggetaboutit!!

for those of you who always forget to use ebates, you should look for an extension/plug in!  i have chrome and use this:

 

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ebates-cash-back/chhjbpecpncaggjpdakmflnfcopglcmi

 

it's great because anytime you're on a website a little bar pops up if you can get cash back and you just click the button to activate it, so you don't even have to go through the ebates website anymore.  i'm guessing they make things like that for other browsers too so it might be worth looking into.

I went tonight specifically to look and see if we had any (and also for a birthday present for my kid's friend tomorrow, lol - but mostly the chocolate!) - and no love. They didn't have any at all. Womp, womp.

yup yup, I love that app, it's actually the only app I have on my chrome and it's not even annoying! it doesn't show up when you don't need it, only when you do, I love it...and silly goose(don't take offense) there's no need for other browsers when Godgle(not a typo) created Chrome :D

I had to secretly switch my dads computer to chrome, I was like seriously dad? Internet explored, let's jump ahead from 1999. As an old person who like worries about security I was appalled he wasn't using chrome already. Our next secret upgrade is to replace the router from 2004 that only allows for like 5 connections before it goes haywire, he doesn't understand that stuff like that goes out of date. "but it still works! The devices won't be able to find the new wifi, and I'll have to change all the passwords" erm and he worked at a high level in a national security lab for 35 years, so it our government goes down, it's definitely going to be cyber terrorism. He can tell you 200 ways to make explosives, and dozens of ways to tell them apart from peanut butter in airport X-ray machines, but set him in front of a computer and he's like an 11 year old googling for boobs. So painful to watch

LOL I am laughing so hard right now!

 

My grandpa was a civil engineer back in the day and was partially responsible for designing the underground pipe system in Beijing but he's absolutely clueless with computers. He's working on his third book and he's always bringing his laptop to me, asking why the text has suddenly been underlined or turned red or whatever. I don't even know how he even manages to do stuff like that because sometimes it's some sort of effect that I didn't even know MS Word offered, and it takes me forever to fix it because his laptop is configured in Chinese and I can't read it!

ughh i hate bing!  i got a windows phone (i no longer know why did that) and i hate that the default search engine is bing.  my parents use yahoo and MSN though which boggles my mind...particularly since i'm pretty sure MSN is just a news website with a bing search bar pasted there...

post #267 of 2321

My mom was so computer illiterate. She used to ask me and my sister how to do stuff all the time. We'd make fun of her for not remembering the command to copy and paste text. Now that she's passed, I wish I had been more helpful to her and not always given her a hard time when she couldn't figure something out (it was all in good fun, but still).

Oh wow lol.. .Well, with the techie stuff my grandpa is 86 and has a FB. Says it's the easiest way to stay updated on all the kids, especially grandkids and photos! Mostly due to the fact he was never a huge phone person, that was my deceased grandma's job and most grandkids don't snail mail or email frequently enough. So he peeps everyone's FB lol, which is why I had to update some of my privacy and approval options!

I've got one foot on each side of this situation - I can handle regular run-of-the-mill computer stuff/email/message boards/blogging - even met my husband online 16 years ago, but twitter? That just doesn't make sense to me at all.
