DANGER!!! WARNING!!! If you’re a chocoholic and you’re hungry, I highly suggest that you go and have something to eat before continuing to read this blog. If not, you may have an irresistible urge to eat your computer screen :).
Two amazing weekends in a row – how could it get any better? Besides almost finishing my Christmas shopping (wahoooo!!), on Saturday morning we headed to Kitchener again to see my son and his girlfriend and take them out for lunch, but first we had a couple of stores to check out. Of course, I would love to go and see Bryan every weekend now that he is away at college, but there was something else that also drew us to Kitchener this time as well. There is a Lindt Chocolate outlet store not more than 10 minutes from Bryan’s residence!!!! Yes, you heard me right – chocolate and outlet store in the same sentence :). It was like a dream come true! I had my camera with me in the car, but everything logical left my mind when we pulled into the parking lot, and the camera was left behind in the trunk.
It was like there was a magnet drawing me inside, and as I stepped through the door, my eyes widened and my jaw dropped. It was wall to wall and floor to ceiling chocolate. There were boxes and bags, and even bins full of individual truffles in every flavour imaginable. And best of all, they were handing out samples!! All four of us went crazy filling baskets full of chocolate, using this as a one-stop stocking stuffer shopping trip. I mean, how could we resist with deals like 50% off and buy two, get two free? By the time we were done, Mike and I had spent $100, and Bryan and Cayley had pretty big bags full too. That was the most fun I have had in a long time :).
Like I said, because I was so overcome with excitement, I totally forgot to take pictures. Instead, I dumped our bag of goodies out at home tonight and started snapping photos. Don’t hate me too much fellow chocolate lovers. I know this will be a bit of a tease, but I couldn’t resist sharing. Enjoy!!
