Those of you who regularly read this blog will know that I love good chocolates. I'm not quite a connoisseur, but I can definitely tell between good and bad chocolates. When I heard word of a lolly shop in the vicinity of our new work building, I had to pay them a visit and see what they had.
I took a walk to the shop, called Sweet As, near the corner of North Road and East Boundary Road. I was expecting a warehouse type thing but it was a fully furnished shop with heaps of lollies and chocoalates. I will need to go back to get a better look at the merchandise, but the first thing that caught my eye was Lindt blocks of chocolates for $1. I had forgotten to bring my wallet so quickly borrowed a few bucks from everyone. I then grabbed seven blocks of the Creme Caramel chocolates.
So it sounded too good to be true right, well sort of. There obviously a catch. You don't go selling good chocolates for such ridiculous prices. The usual price for these Creme Caramel blocks is $5.50. Upon closer inspection at the sign, it showed that the chocolates were past their used by date. I looked at the used by date and it was only a couple of days ago. Ah big deal. The chocolates would still be fine. The used by dates are always conservative and I've eaten heaps of things past their dates and never had a problem.
After I paid and went outside, I tucked into a block with my work mates. It was delicious and tasted fine. I might have to go back and buy some other types. They also had the mocha flavour for $5 for 5. I will have to pay regular visits to the store now to see what they have on special each time. Until then, I will chomp on my delicious chocolates.
