Chocaholics Unite!


Check out our latest sinful indulgence…

dsc05708.jpg

It’s Jules Destrooper Chocolate Thins! It’s a 100g box of heavenly crispy baked candy biscuits richly coated in Belgian chocolate.  It comes in an assortment of dark, milk and white chocolate – truly a chocaholic’s dream-come-true! 

Keith discovered this a couple of weeks ago while we were grocery-shopping.  It was one of the specials then (buy one-take one) and he originally intended for these cookies to be a quick-fix for him in-between meals while at work.  Needless to say, the boxes never made it to his office – hahaha! :mrgreen:

Although we are more conscious now of what we eat, we make it a point to give in to this indulgence once in a while (think extra minutes on the treadmill, people) as this is definitely such a treat after a meal.

What’s more, good news for those of you in the US and in the bigger countries in Europe and Asia, I just checked its site and they apparently take orders online and deliver straight to your doorstep! Great deal, huh? Too bad that they still do not have this service here in the Middle East (no fair – boohoohoo! 😦 ).

One thing’s for sure, though, this yummy treat will remain a staple in many of our grocery stops to come… 😉

    Ang galing ng photography skills mo, Hon (*wink*).

    Super sarap nito. I wish they sell it in bigger boxes. This definitely beats our previous favorite – Jewels. I hope may sale ulit next time we go home para others can try it.

    Alam mo naman, if there’s a will, there’s a way… (*double wink*) 😉 Hahaha!

    Oo nga, I could just imagine the oinkish squeals of delight of all our equally sugar-pumped relatives, if ever!

  3. ps: and i so agree with keith. you so have the eye for photography. lovely pic, pinky. your photo looks delish, that i’m going online shopping later. hehehehe 😉

    Uh-oh…guess it’s confession time for me… The thing is, while I do have the eye for a great photo, I wasn’t exactly the one who conceptualized the picture. You see, I took a photo of a photo – heehee! 😉 This was actually what was printed on the chocolate box, sorry… Looks like photography still remains one of my “needs improvement” areas. Tips naman! 🙂

    Anyhoo, go ahead and order na – am sure you won’t regret it! Take care! Mwah!

  4. ang talas talaga ng radar ni keith sa mga pagkain! hahaha! malakas ang loob niya kasi meron kayong treadmill. 😉 there’s always room for dessert! 😉

    With the rate we’re going, though, baka di na kayanin ng treadmill at kailangan full-blown home gym na – hahaha! 🙂 Hirap kasi to have come from a family of sweet tooths e – napasa ko tuloy sa own family ko. My bad! 😦

  5. harvs and i are always on the lookout for new foods to munch on. harvs is a choco-lover din. and although we have a treadmill too, hindi namin nagagamit! hehehe! 🙂

    Keith and I are the same way too… ayan tuloy, hirap na hirap mag-slim-down… 😦 Di bale, it’s good to give in to our hedonistic tendencies now and then, right? 😉

  6. Baka pag nakita mo mga kids ko sabihin mo, “ang payat pala namin ni Keith.” hahaha!

    I saw them na nga through your blogs and I must say, they really are well-loved 😉 Galing mag-alaga ng mommy nila kaya ganon sila ka-healthy, di ba? 🙂

    now back to the chocl8!:)

    Hi Dang! I read somewhere that chocolates, especially the dark kind, are actually good for us since they are rich in anti-oxidants which fight cancer. O diba? Another reason for chocaholics to rejoice – back to the chocolate talaga! 😛 Thanks for the visit!
