I went to a right little posh place just a few miles from where I live & went into a sweety shop (candy shop if you're American)

In my local shops you buy chocolates by the box full, but not in Lymm, you have to buy them individually.

These four chocolates cost me more than I can buy a whole box full for locally.

I had to take a photo of them.
I ate them in about 5 seconds so I reckon I could eat about £50 worth in 1 minute.

Yeah, I felt great knowing that I've got to explain why my mortgage isn't going to be paid for the next 3 months & my food rations for the next 6 months went within a few seconds :)

You sacrifice buying beer for posh chocolates ! or where they filled with rum. brandy etc ? lol ;-)

The one at the bottom was rum, the one to the left was strawberry, the one at the top was raspberry & the one to the right was coffee.

I had to go without beer for a whole 2 hours after buying these.

The madness of it all, why do I do this to myself :(

It was far worse than hell mate, but God willing I may just pull through & live to tell the awful tale.

My doctor said I might live, but he didn't recommend it.
He said it was the worse case he'd ever seen :(

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =:O
£50 = BHT3,500 !!!!! ........*fainted*

There's a chocolate shop in Bangkok that sales very expensive chocolate 'coz they imported all ingredients from Belgium and Switzerland...but it's not as expensive as yours!!
BTW, I've never bought myself but ate it when somebody bought and left the box opened! ;))) lol

you could have bought some filled with rum or brandy. Guess there´s no chocolates filled with beer - maybe you could make a lot of £ if you started making beer-chocolates, but then again - you would eat most of it yourself :-))

Coffee flavoured chocolate is the DEVILS chocolate. It is evil and should never be put in selection boxes offered to the unwary greedy git

Stupid, ME?!!!! I have studied chocolate for many MANY years and would assess that indeed it is YOU my friend who are the idiot of your village. My evidence? The Revels 'Russian Roulette' ad where the guy collapses on the floor in complete agony 'cause he got the coffee one! Proof positive

But here it's that expensive so you can never become fat! Cheap fatty food and cheap candy is your body's death...
