I love "real" chocolate cake. No one I know appreciates it as much as I do.

Luckily, I can never find them in the store, I refuse to spend $$ at a bakery, and I'm too lazy to bake.

Why, I dashed out to Kroger and bought a prefab chocolate fudge cak, of course.

I'm a tool for these marketing dept. driven holidays, aren't I?

I ate a big chunk of dark chocolate today. Dark chocholate is the best.

OP knows many of us are dieting.

This is typical passive aggressive hate crime behavior!
