chocogarden

most of you know that i've never met a chocolate i didn't like......my hips, on the other hand, have cast their vote for "no-likey-like" because the more i eat, the bigger they get. so just when i thought i was going to have to drastically curb my choco-appetite, in steps mother nature and gives us chocolate mint for the garden! it's minty, and has a nice chocolate undertone to it.....without the extra calories......and tastes great in a nice tall glass of lemonade! and now that my hips are happier (not smaller, just happier), my chocolate love affair continues on.....

Ludid said...

aimee said...

Meg said...

Mmm! I'm wondering how it really tastes -- I know mint, of course, but not the chocolate one :) Is there a lolypop mint too? :D

Pat said...

I'll definitely be looking for that plant at our garden center! Great post!

Createology said...

You are so funny. We cannot stop eating chocolate no matter what our bodies do so it is good to know we can temper our passion with a little zero calorie chocolate mint. Yum! Happy chocolating...

nacherluver said...

Brilliant! Where ever did you find it?

Pat said...

Brilliant!

Silke said...

Yum-mee, chocolate mint...I just discovered chocolate chai tea bags by Good Earth and love a cup in the morning. And I've gone back to the days before Reese's and dip dark chocolate chunks into creamy peanut butter for a snack in the afternoon. Oh, I need to stop...I'm getting hungary for more chocolate goodies!!!!

Lancerika said...

chocolatey minty beauty♥
Merci for your *kind visit*
Wish you a beautiful w'end :)

shiborigirl said...

You can get geraniums that smell like chocolate too. :) I'm with you - head-over-heels in love with chocolate. And ALL of me is bigger because of it!

Hugs,

Kate

mmmmmmmmmminty!
what a clever way to get your daily dose! LOL
we have all kinds of mints at the greenhouses where i work and i have to 'stop and smell the 'mints' when ever i get a chance. :-) pineapple mint is yummy too!

Shirley said...

I didn't know there was such a plant. I know I like Chocolate Chip Mint icecream. It is not as good for us as what you have told us about. Have a wonderful weekend.

Renee Troy said...

Oh shucks! I could use a chocolate fix about now...I want the real thing though! None of this close your eyes and pretend. I am majorly stressed, overworked and I'm not caring where the results end up. It's take care of my mouth fix that I'm needing.
Okay, I'm calm now.

Lainie said...

I have one of these in my kitchen window. I love to pick a sprig and toss it in a tall glass of water.
Yummy.
