If you have seen ‘Julie & Julia,’ then you will know what I am talking about.  If you have not seen it, then think of Meg Ryan, in the restaurant, in ‘When Harry Met Sally – Official Site – Now on DVD.’  Same thing!!

And, it is the same thing as taking that first bite of a Harry and David® • Wholesale Products Harry & David “Moose Munch” Dark Chocolate Bar.  I purchased my first bar at Target and it is melt-in-your mouth fantabulous, and almost better than—- well, you know what. 

It is not as if I have been sitting on my duff and eating all day.  Truth be told, I have been sitting on my duff and typing most days.  Last week I did one day with my weights and one day on the treadmill, but two days does not a workout habit make.

I have successfully lost 24 pounds since January.  Ahh, this week may have lowered that to 20 pounds as I have actually eaten four meals out.  This is two meals over the total of meals eaten out in restaurants that I usually do in a whole month.  People keep wanting to feed me and it is rude to say, “no” to someone who is intent on treating you.  Right? 

Yeah, well tell that to my sat upon rump, especially when the Nashville Indiana, Historic Bed & Breakfast Inn, Restaurant, Brown County Indiana, Artists Colony Inn Artist’s Colony Inn’s chicken pot pie (Nashville, Indiana) is also like butter to Julia Child. It has been a week, since our friend took us to dinner there, and I can taste it yet.

Back to the Munch.  We are in Target, of all places.  Gaffer has a new job, while he waits to take his Master Electrician’s test class and he needed clothing for his new job, which is as a cashier at Family Restaurants: Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and Restaurant.  Geez, talk about specific.  Button down shirts are NOT that easy to find when you do not want to wear white ones. 

We are checking out and, it being time for lunch, my eyes were tracing over the candy they lure you into buying at the checkout counter.  I always look for very dark chocolate.  I love dark chocolate, and here sits a Harry & David’s Moose Munch bar.

Yep, you heard that right, a Moose Munch.  Gotta love that name, first off.  I have never had a Moose Munch before.  The sugar content is not outrageous compared to other treats and since I usually break things like that into halves or thirds, it would be 145 calories for a half. 

I do declare, they should have to put a warning on the label of a Moose Munch.  I bit into it and felt like, well, like I said above.  Yep, right there, this was heaven on earth, melt in your mouth, if I drop dead now, I will be complete, scrumptiousness.

Please, Santa, I want a whole Christmas stocking full of Moose Munch, this year.  I have been a good girl, well, most of the time.

P.S.  No one has paid me to mention anything on this blog, but I would not be averse to Harry & David sending me a box of Moose Munch.  Then, I would share with XUP for sure.
