Chocoholic or just plain normal???

I belong to a survey company. They send me surveys, I complete the surveys and get paid. I make about $20 every 3 months which they send me in vouchers of my choice. Not a lot of money but a nice wee bonus every so often. And it usually is "cash in" time right when I need a new mascara or perfume. If you are interested, Google Valued Opinions.

Anyway, the last survey I filled out was about chocolate. I was presented with a HUGE range of chocolate brands, I was asked to tick which ones I had ever eaten. I am so embarrassed to say that I ticked them ALL. I certainly know my chocolate well. Is that normal? How many brands do you know/have eaten?

There were other questions about how often I eat certain brands...and all of a sudden, my gradual weight gain started making sense. You know how sometimes you don't see something and then BAM!, it's staring you in the face and you think, 'I can't believe I didn't see it before'? I was really honest in the survey and realised I eat a chocolate bar on average once a week. Is that normal? It seems like it would be when I say it but when I wrote it down it seemed excessive. Don't forget this is on top of other 'treats' throughout the week.

C'mon girls, am I normal? What's your average? And do you think it's okay?

    Are we talking a single chocolate bar or a King size cake?? Cause to be honest, in NZ (thankfully unavailable at a good price here) MJ and I could easily chow down a couple of king size ones in a week. No problem. I good with it, if you are :)

    Thanks for your lovely comment too. Height is a blessing! I love being tall!!

    Sounds like a good idea too that survey company. All those bits and pieces add up to good treats!!

    I've never been a big chocolate eater, but I know I'm not normal with that. Donuts, however, are a different story. ;) But I really get what you mean about not seeing something until it's staring you in the face.. I didn't think I had a lot of sugar in my diet until the last few weeks when I started paying attention - Whoa! It sneaks in in all kinds of foods.
