Match made in Heaven

You know those couples that are seriously meant for each other?

They just go together.

Two magnets.

Peas in a pod.

True Soulmates.

The real life Romeo and Juliet.

Well. I met that perfect pair last week.

Meet:

Dark Chocolate


+

Raspberry

Oh my goodness. I've died and gone to Heaven, My Friends.

Yes. I am very aware that this is a popular combo. I, however, have never tried it. I'm not one to mix fruit and sweets or fruit and...anything. I love fruit. I love sweets. Just not the two together. For example, when I eat strawberry shortcake, I eat the strawberries first and then the cake and whipped cream. Any kind of fruit pie? Forget about it. Something about warm fruit gives me the awkward tingles. Or how about fruit and meat? Ugh! That downright gives me nightmares.

But raspberry and chocolate? Yes please.

Dude. This duo seriously must have met on e-harmony. Couldn't pick a better match.

I particularly like this dark chocolate/raspberry froyo at our local ice cream joint. After some convincing from a friend, I went out on a limb and tried it and BAM: instant addiction.

My latest fave?

The Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars.

Oh.My.Goodness.

Heaven I tell ya.

I was so hoping for some romantic story. lol

I am not a sweets eater.
Chocolate just does NOT do it for me.

So I guess I dont understand ppl's obsession with it.

I love weight watchers ice cream, but I can't say I've tried this one. I'll have to be on the look out for it next time I'm at the grocery store. Looks yum!
