December 1st marks the beginning of the advent calendar season. A 24 day exercise in self-restraint. There are 24 pieces of chocolate in this calendar but I can only eat one a day. What’s worse is this is meant for kids. How on earth are kids supposed to not eat the chocolate?
When I was a child I remember the numbers being all in order but the one I got this year (a present I got for going to eat birthday cake for my girlfriend’s sister’s birthday) has numbers all over the place. You really have to work to find the right number. Especially this early in the month.
I’m just glad that Santa’s face was day 1. I didn’t like the way he was looking at me. It was like he was judging me for having a daily chocolate habit. Talk about hypocrite. For the next 24 days I will be eating chocolate that my belly does not shake like a bowl full of jelly.
This was the chocolate behind door number 1.
There are several options for what this could be. Here is my list of possibilities:
- Christmas Socks
- Normal Socks
- Han Solo’s Carbonite Socks
- Double “L” (really wanted it to be this one because that’s half my last name)
- Two hockey sticks
- Soup ladles
- Two pointing hands, with really beefy fingers
- I think I might see snow men in there somewhere.
But my favourite option and the one this chocolate sculpture is obviously depicting, is the chocolate shoes horns.
Ever wonder how they get the caramel in the Caramilk Bars? Well stop wondering, because they obviously use chocolate shoe horns.
I don’t know about you but nothing says christmas like shoes horns. I have shoe horn on my christmas wish list. And if it’s made out of chocolate all the better.
