The UPS man saves the day!

Yesterday afternoon, I had some difficulty concentrating on work because my “monthly visitor” was torturing me with cramps.  Always a joy.

And then the doorbell rang.

When I opened my front door, I saw a UPS truck driving away from my house and noticed that the package left on my doorstep had my name on it.

Sadly, I haven’t made any online purchases through J. Crew lately, so the delivery was a complete surprise.

And just what was inside?

 

Chocolate!

That’s right.  I received a box of Ghirardelli chocolates from the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program.

Can you think of anything more appropriate for a crampy woman?!

Aside from the obvious fact that it tastes awesome, there are also lots of great benefits to eating real dark chocolate consisting of at least 72-86% cacao and healing flavonoids (milk chocolate doesn’t count):

  • Boosts immunity
  • Possibly inhibits cancer
  • Reduces the risk of heart disease
  • Prevents hardening of the arteries
  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Treats liver disorders
  • Slows down the aging process with its antioxidants
  • Boosts brain power and improves memory
  • Acts as a natural mood booster
  • Contains magnesium which can control PMS and make Aunt Flow more tolerable (seriously!)

 

 

Of course, I had a piece immediately.

There’s nothing better than foods that taste good and are good for you too!

Are you a chocolate lover?  Believe it or not, I never really liked chocolate until about a year or so ago.  Now I find that there’s nothing better than a piece of chocolate (and maybe a glass of wine) in the evening.

Have a great day- and have some chocolate! ;)

      The fact that it was dark chocolate was the best part! I still love milk chocolate, but it doesn’t give me the “healthy” excuse. ;)

  3. ooo looks like this saved the day! I love ghiradelli!

  4. Mmmmm, dark chocolate is the best!

  5. That is the best surprise package ever!

      I totally agree! I am glad that the UPS man was able to find my house while driving past all those horse farms. ;)

  6. I heart chocolate – one of my splurges every once in a while, especially with a glass of red wine – YUMMY! I love dark chocolate and throw some nuts or peanut butter in every once in a while and I am in chocolate heaven. I love to make dark chocolate bark with pistachios for a dinner party dessert – people rave about it for days afterwards. My UPS guy drops off wine club shipments. If he could master bringing chocolate life would be perfect:)

  7. What a fun surprise! Dark chocolate is my excuse when I want something sweet – I can justify that it is good for me and tastes good too. I have also used that excuse this week because I have been drinking red wine every night (my other excuse is that I was in Italy and shared a bottle with my colleagues from work)
