Well, technically, International Chocolate Day falls on the 13th of September, but I had driven myself into a sugar coma yesterday and absolutely could not muster up the energy to put up a post. That said, there’s no reason why it shouldn’t get a celebratory post even if it’s a day late, right?
Okay, okay. I just want an excuse to share pictures of the things I ate. I feel this would be best expressed through a timeline.
10 a.m. I had a delicious, warm, buttery chocolate croissant. The only thing that could’ve made it better is chocolate sprinkles.
12 30 p.m. Lunch time. I opted for a triple chocolate muffin with a gooey chocolate centre that exploded in my mouth (and got all over my fingers) with each bite. It was one of the best muffins I’ve ever had.
5 30 p.m. After work I went to my favourite sugar haunts, and after debating between a 10-tier chocolate cake and a Ferrero Rocher cheesecake, I opted for the cheesecake, thinking it would be lighter. Boy was I wrong. At least the cake seemed fluffier; but the cheesecake was so rich and heavy and 100% decadent. I downed it with a super sweet caramel coffee drink. By the time I finished, I was feeling slightly sick. My body was screaming at me to stop.
11 30 p.m. I almost decided against it, but eventually ended my day with a double-chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting. I just barely managed to finish it.
By the end of the night, I felt so worn out and so terribly hyper at the same time. It was ridiculous. At some point I crashed on the couch and woke up with a stiff neck. Now you will ask me, “Zen, was it really worth it?” and I will tell you – yes, yes it was incredibly worth it.
Did you eat any chocolate yesterday? If not, will you make up for it today? Do you think I overdid it? xD
