chocolate bugs

I have never been stung by a bee. All of my kids have, but not moi. Am I in the minority? The mere thought of being stung gives me the heebie-jeebies.

While I was hunting through the post-Easter clearance shelves at Target last month, I came across these.


Have you ever seen such an ADORABLY tasty treat?! Lindt hazelnut chocolatey goodness. Yum.

Hello, cute little friends.


Eeny, meeny, miny, mo... you lose little ladybug.



I almost feel guilty for eating their friend.

Look at how they are looking over and smiling... they have NO idea the extent of its injuries.




Maybe this will help.



Do you think I fooled them?

I think I need to get out more. Or sleep more. Or drink more coffee. I'm starting to scare even myself.


I am linking up with TidyMom today. Come join the fun!

You crack me up! Maybe you just need to eat all of them. Then you don't have to feel bad and they won't either. :)

I can't believe you have never been stung! That's amazing.
Nater got stung tonight, right by his eye. Fortunately, it didn't swell up very bad.

I would take chocolate bugs over the real ones any day.
Those little guys are SO cute!

I'm just glad you are getting so much enjoyment out of eating these... ;)

at times like these, I don't care what shape it is as long as it's chocolate...

I looked in the freezer for my chocolate bar (w/ coconut of course) and it was GONE!! when confronted, Micah said, "I was trying to help you..." uh.huh.

well, thank you very much. I will be spared a few calories... ;)

enjoy your bugs!

I've never been stung by a be, but I did step on a yellow jacket when I was a kid. Yes, it hurt. i'm with Christine in the first comment, EAT THEM ALL, just to put them out of their misery of course.

Haha you are too cute.
I have never been stung either, thank God. It sounds painful.
Lindt makes such awesome chocolate. I didn't know they made stuff that cute though.

:) Those are very cute chocolate bugs. And I'm with everyone else, I would take the chocolate ones over a real bee any day! I've only been stung once and long enough ago as a child that I remember crying but I don't remember the pain. Funny, huh? Hope you enjoyed every bite!

I can't even count how many times I've been stung. But it's been awhile now, shh.. don't tell them.

I love your little buggies - I would love to eat them even more! MMM... hazelnut... mmm...

Chocolate bugs? Too cute!

Samantha said...

Funny! I will vote for getting out more! I need it too! :)

GlowinGirl said...

You are so silly. Thanks for the laugh today.

(And as far as getting stung -- my first time was as a grown-up mama. I really thought I just might make it 'til I died without it happening. Pooh! I learned a great tip though: Hemmoroid cream takes the sting away. Heehee. Hope that didn't ruin your chocolate!)

Lesley said...

Girl, you crack me up! Thanks for such a cute post. :)

Dawn Camp said...

Almost too cute to eat - but I'm with you - I'd eat them anyway. :)_ One can't be too sentimental about chocolate!
