Chocolate Easter Chicken
A girlfriend took me to her favorite candy store yesterday so she could stock up on Easter Candy. It's called Corden's Chocolates and it has been in business since 1918, and no other candy manufacturer can say that each piece of chocolate passes through the hands of one man.
I couldn't believe all the different chocolate bunnies they had. They even had a bunny on a motorcycle, not to mention the chicks and crosses.
I've been on the fence about chocolate being a trigger for me. A doctor told me several years ago don't eat chocolate because it can trigger a migraine, but I've been experimenting with mixed results. Easter is one of my favorite holiday times because of the candy, and I've been missing chocolate in my basket for a long time. So I said what the hell and I bought myself a chocolate chicken and a bag of foiled wrapped eggs!
If it makes my pain worse, so what. There could be a big weather shift or Aunt Martha might have a hissy fit and clobber me in the head on the same day, and I would be in the same boat. This year I'm having chocolate on Easter!!
