Chocolate Temptations

yesterday, i cursed my decision to become a vegan. why? because all i wanted was a damn chocolate bar. i would have settled for anything- Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way. the ultimate yumness in chocolate is a Cadbury Dairy Milk bar, but if i’m going to stick to this whole “no dairy” thing, that eliminates all my favorites.

it was a very sad moment for me, especially since i had such a hard day.


today as i perused the aisles of Sam’s Club (my absolute favorite place to buy wonderful staples such as apples, onions, salad, soy milk, nuts, etc.) i came across two huge bottles of Hershey’s Syrup. on a whim, i turned the bottle around and read the ingredients.


some of you may argue… you could say things about “fair trade” and “animal derived nutrients” but i’m not vegan ¬†because i want to save all the cute and fuzzy animals. i had absolutely NO problems with shoving a huge, charred hunk of cow in my face until i realized that shoving that chunk of cow in my face increased my risk for several types of cancers. my household’s rule is, if there isn’t enough animal products to be listed in the ingredients… then it doesn’t count.

i’m not vegan for them, i’m vegan for me.

i’ll tell you all about the liberation of control later.

for now, i just want you to know that this is awesome.
