    So I'm currently in Catalonia as the boyf lives here part-time for work and I just got on holiday. Being the total health nut that I am, I read all the ingredients when at the grocery store. Problem is, everything is in Spanish or Catalan and so my inner health nut is upset by my inability to verify what I am eating. I've taken to going to the Dutch store because I can actually read the labels (I can speak Afrikaans).

    I was shopping this morning and I saw this:

    In Afrikaans this would be "Sjokolade Skaakstukke".

    My chess player mind had an orgasm. It's chocolate and chess combined! Who would have thought that such a marvellous thing existed?

    Having a “boyf” places them statistically likely to be of the female gender...with a possibility of being a homosexual male of course.

    Well I would assume so since I saw it here in Barcelona and it's a Dutch product and both Spain and the Netherlands are EU members. If you live outside the EU/EEA then I'm not sure.

    Oh, the HEMA sells these too, now? I used to get them from the Jumbo but they stopped selling the dark variety and milk chocolate on biscuit is too sweet for me. I think I sent a photo to Greenpawn some time ago.

    I object.


    Why haven't you offered to send everyone chocolate? If the moment you had really was that profound, then the very least you should do is offer to send everyone chocolate.
