Chocolate Witchery

Made the mistake of walking down the snack aisle on a recent trip to the grocery store while hungry. I think there’s a name for this…Hunger Game of Carts? No, too long. How about Hunger-mongering? No, too ominous…never mind, I digress. Back to the blasted candy aisle:

I took a wrong turn and there I was hungry, alone, candy everywhere I turned. Sunk a little deeper into regret by making eye contact with this little beauty:

Chocolate 2

Moonstruck indeed! The packaging bewitched me. Seriously, the marketing team must be a gang of witches who craft these mind control spells and hex people into making purchases they never intended. I transformed into some kind of famished chocolate-bot and before I knew what I was doing the candy bar was nestled gently between the bread and the cheddar cheese in my shopping cart. No, I’m not kidding. The last thing I remember before I came to in my car with a stomach ache and chocolate wrappers strewn about was reading this on the packaging:

Chocolate 3


It’s only natural to desire that which is irresistible. Namely Moonstruck Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Almond. It’s an idyllic combination of the sweet, the salty, and the very dark. Follow your dark thoughts. They know where they’re going.

Give in to your cravings.

Apparently my dark thoughts are drunk driving aimlessly at speeds of 100 mph because if a chocolate hangover is a *thing* that might explain what I’m experiencing. Dear buyer, do beware. Ridiculously delicious dark chocolate sorcery lurking about the shelves on aisle 6.

    Lordy lordy, I am going to have to find this, aren’t I?


    • April 24, 2014 at 12:49 pm

      Affirmative. Don’t walk, run to the grocery store Punk Rock Pal. You won’t regret it.

    See I’d be the same, wrappers fascinate me and make me want to purchase. That right there is a beautiful bar of chocolate!!


    • April 24, 2014 at 12:49 pm

      Isn’t it? I had to take a picture of the whole enchilada. Beautiful and tasty. Deadly combo.

    You were helpless to fight it. I eat dark chocolate every day. Why doesn’t everyone? (except diabetics…)


    • April 24, 2014 at 12:52 pm

      Kerbey, you are so wise. I think I shall follow in your footsteps.

      Isn’t it? They did a beautiful job with the marketing and all the details.

    With chocolate!!!! YES! (but not everyday)


  8. April 24, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    Well that is evil! How dare they put all that great tasting dark chocolate in one aisle, Sandra!!


    • April 24, 2014 at 6:42 pm

      That’s exactly what I’m talking about Mark. I knew you’d get it.

    Chocolate Witchery says it all! I clicked on your page and was drawn in and drooling even before I knew what happened 🙂


    • April 24, 2014 at 6:44 pm

      I’m so sorry to have affected you in this way. But I’m so glad you stopped by to say hello! Come on over anytime.


      • April 24, 2014 at 6:46 pm

        Thank you! I will 🙂
        I keep chocolate stashed at my site, too.


      • April 24, 2014 at 6:48 pm

        Great! I’ll be right over.


  10. April 24, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    I love dark chocolate!


    • April 24, 2014 at 6:46 pm

      You and me both Alex! Nothing better.


  11. April 24, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    Chocolate aside. I love your jacket!


    • April 24, 2014 at 6:56 pm

      Thanks Mark! You like plaid too? I love plaid.


      • April 24, 2014 at 11:45 pm

        I love it. Problem is, we don’t really have the chance to wear it here, specially because the material is on the thicker side.. Not ideal in the tropics!


  12. April 24, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    I nominated you for the liebster award! The rules are on my page if you are interested in participating 🙂

    Is it wicked to shop chocolate aisles? Because then I am very wicked. Here is a store in a nearby city in which I’ve found your very brand of Moonstruck. It’s a castle (well, a castle in the sense that it’s on a busy city block) devoted to all things chocolate. Four floors of chocolate.

    Am all over artisan chocolate, so bring on the witchery. Great find, Sandra. Have enjoyed “meeting” (maybe stalking is a better word, haha) over at Kerbey’s. It is you we have to thank for her Tender Loving post? 😉


    • April 25, 2014 at 6:13 am

      Hi Liz! How nice it is to find you over here in my neck of the woods. You’re welcome anytime! I will be sure to check out this link you left me. Artisan chocolate is my type of artistry. 😉 Happy Friday.

    I love the design on the wrapping – it’s bewitching! (Ha, I’ll stop now.)

    My husband recently went through the Easter clearance aisle at the market and came home with three bags of candy and chocolate… I gave him dirty glares as I stuffed them in my face.
    Chocolate hangovers? Definitely a thing.


    • April 26, 2014 at 6:09 am

      Those holiday clearance candy aisles are trouble! I’m glad I’m not the only one powerless to these charms. Thanks for stopping by!

    So many brilliant things going on in this post—Hunger Game of Carts! Cute jacket sleeve poking into one of the pictures! Chocolate hangovers! Girl, I feel you.
