In this episode of Chocapocalypse, we show you our Lindt Dark Mint vs Soft Centre Mint review. May the best chocolate win!
I love love love love love chocolate and mint together! It makes my inner schoolgirl squeal and dance with happiness whenever I get to eat it. Jonathan, however, thinks it’s just… meh. Another ‘mint thing’. That’s fine, more chocolate for me! It isn’t often that we find a food that he prefers to just hand my way; usually it’s the other way around. Oh well, more chocolate for me!
Funny Story Time
Okay, so I have a funny story about the Lind Mint Chocolates. I picked them up just two days before we filmed, on a grocery shopping excursion. I was at Superstore buying our groceries, and after getting back to my vehicle and unloading my cart, I realized I had forgotten to buy the chocolate. Back in I went, my brain doing countless calculations about how much time this would set me back, and whether I should just go to my errand location quickly to make up for lost time, or if I could just hurry home and unload my meats and frozen goods then head out again.
I got the chocolates, trotted back to my vehicle, and some lady comes running up to me. “Excuse me,” she said, “I think these belong to you.” Then she hands over my car keys. What the!?
Superstore, for those of you who don’t know, takes loonies to ‘lock’ and ‘unlock’ your cart. You get your loonie back if you return the cart to the cart corral, or you can sacrifice your dollar by just leaving your wherever. I always end up using my spare loonies to pay for stuff, and never have one when it’s time to go grocery shopping. When I had the opportunity to buy a keychain cart token, I was on that like Finnegan on a ball.
We Agreed I Would Never Tell My Husband
Anyways, so the lady who flagged me down explained that she was getting a card when she noticed that someone had left their keys in one, dangling on a keychain cart token. She began looking around to see who it belonged to, and when she got near my vehicle the auto sensor opened the back hatch (which freaked her out a little). What she found confusing was that all the groceries were inside the vehicle already, so where could the owner have disappeared to?
In my defence, it was a hectic day. So much to do, so little time to do it, and the heat, man, the heat was just getting to me. I thanked the lady profusely and we giggled about how my husband was never to know what happened (it’s okay, he doesn’t read anything on the blog, so my secret is safe). What a nice lady, to go out of her way to do a nice thing.
Yay for honest, friendly people, and yay for chocolate!
Don’t forget to suggest a death for the losing chocolate, go here to cast your vote!
