Today is the 19th day of February and it is a day recognized as "National Chocolate Mint" day. It happens that this kind of chocolate is one of my favorite flavor. Unfortunately, I do not have even a piece of it right now which is very unusual for me. I guess I will have to celebrate that day on my own terms and that will be when I get some chocolate mint bars later on during the week. Do you love that kind of chocolate too?

@marlina No I never eat gum I usually carry a packet of polos around with me. They are mint candy with a hole in the middle.

Chocolate mint desserts are my fave! I make chocolate mint squares only at Christmas since they do take a while to make. They're fudgy brownies with a butter cream frosting, then a thin layer of mint bittersweet chocolate. Have you tried Hershey's Mint Crunch bars? Delicious!

@Asylum It all depends on the size of the chocolate mint box?

Yes, I like it, too. I wonder why there is an extra day for it. Isn't a general choccie day enough?

Right up my Street that kind of chocolate. I loved After Eight Chocolate Mints but I could not buy them for ages. One because they were not in the Shops . Two when they were in the Shops I could not afford them. Three ended up just looking at them and thinking I am going to buy them but never did as they vanished off the Shelves again.

We don't really keep much candy or chocolate in the house mostly because if its here we will eat it all right away. I like them from time to time.
