|This is what I was hoping for.|
However when we got to the store, I was feeling a little guilty, so I decided to compromise. We got a box of vanilla ice cream instead and a bottle of fudge topping--the kind than forms a hard shell. Also something I like but rarely get for the same reasons as Klondikes.
|No one ended up with chocolate on their ice cream.|
Then the next day, I made one of the hardest decisions of my life. (Okay, that's an exaggeration, but it was hard.) I threw out both bottles of the fudge topping. Did I forget to mention, I bought two bottles of the stuff because I was hungry when I went to the store? Once again I proved the rule of don't go into the grocery store when you're hungry. But, I digress. At first I thought I should keep them and they would seem more appealing another day. Then I thought, I should offer to them to someone else who might like them, but I rationalized that they wouldn't be good for anyone else if they weren't good for me.
So I plopped both of them into the trash can. I threw away perfectly good "food". I felt guilty because I didn't even try to save the bottles. I didn't like looking at what was in them that much. So while trying to save a little money, I caused myself several days of distress.

So what did I learn from this? Nothing I didn't already know. Homemade food is usually the best because you know what's in it and usually it's cheaper. It' okay to treat yourself sometimes. And if you're going to eat junk food, it's better to not know what it's in it :)
