Default Those Pillow-Top Chocolates

What do YOU do with them?

1) Eat them immediately, of course.

2) Take them home so they can be savored during a cruise blues attack.

3) Pass them out at home as gifts or souvenirs.

4) Or, the newest category invented on my last cruise, use them for "decoration"! lol

I usually do a combo of 2 and 3.

I do one of two things, depending on whether or not I am still full from late-seating dinner.

1) Eat mine immediately.

2) Save mine for later. In which case, it usually gets eaten by my cabin-mate, who is always of the eat-them-immediately faction. Hmph.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

I'm of the eat it right now school.....many years ago when we went on the Mississippi Queen with the entire family I didn't realize that my husband was putting his pillow top chocolates into my purse to save them....of course the first thing I did when we got back to Orlando was go to the laundromat (thank goodness those days are over!).....still not knowing the chocs. were there. I found them when I dug into my purse at the Popeyes drive thru to pay for my iced tea......came out with a hand full of melted chocolate. Yuck......

Either eat them right away or save them for a cruise blues depression period.

I am a "save 'em till the next morning to get rid of the low blood sugar morning yuckies" person.

(No longer save them for when I get back because they usually end up as mush)

Since we have early seating and stop back in our cabin right after dinner and before the show, my husband eats his then. I usually save mine for a late night snack when we finally return to the cabin and go to bed. Or - sometimes I save all of mine until the very last day when I'm feeling sad that the cruise is ending. I like to give myself a little treat.

No question about it....EAT THEM IMMEDIATELY. And I usually gobble up Gary's too.

Are those for the husband too? No one ever told me. I squirrel them away in a drawer and do the next morning thing-- didn't know that I could call it the "low sugar morning yuckies".

Always immediately, I am such a chocoholic!

On the Golden I turned up my nose at all the pumpkin deserts on Thanksgiving and told my waiter no thanks (only because there was no chocolate).

He didn't say a word and proceeded to bring me a Love Boat Dream!!! I think by Thursday he had me figured out pretty well!!!

Hee hee, that's funny Bob. "Our turn down service always includes a pat of butter on your pillow."

Cheers,

I usually forget it's there and wind up with melted chocolate on the pillow and my cheek in the morning.

I eat some (DSH does not enjoy chocolate as much as I do), and take some home to the kids, if they are not with us. If they ARE with us, I am lucky if I get one, unless it is mint, then the boys make sure I get at least one. The last cruise we took without the kids I asked our room steward for a few extra to take home for the kids, and he gave me a huge handful to take. He and my husband had hit it off well (both from the Philippines) during that week, and we spent quite a bit of time talking to him.
