Not quite Valentine’s Day yet

3 Feb

I realize that today is February 3rd, not the 14th, but when I saw these pralines, I just HAD to buy them for myself.

I'm a geek and bought myself Valentine's Day chocolates

...and clearly, I wasn't going to wait til the 14th

Let me explain why these bring me so much joy besides the obvious reason that chocolate also equals happiness. I grew up in Germany, and Milka and Kinder chocolates are the main staples of childhood. And for some reason, German Kinder chocolates taste waaay better than the Kinder chocolates you find here. Ever since I moved to Toronto, I’ve been keeping my eyes out in specialty stores and fine food stores for German chocolates. Which is usually followed by weeks of pigging out.

If you ever see any Milka chocolates, do yourself a favour: buy one in every flavour! And then y’all can thank me.

    Oh Emily, I hope for your sake that they are still there because they are delicious. But if they aren’t, make sure to substitute with any other Milka chocolate right away! ❤
