I’m sure these things should be illegal

Dark roasted coffee beans. Covered in a thick layer of dark chocolate. Quite wonderful, and possibly ever so slightly addictive. Seriously good.

I get mine (like all my proper coffee) from those nice Pumphrey’s people, who can be found in Newcastle’s Grainger Market. They have a wide range of coffees and teas, and the service is always friendly, whether you’re buying a small bag of coffee or 2kg of espresso beans[1]. Makes supporting local business a pleasure. I only allow myself the chocolate-coated beans occasionally, mind. Otherwise I’d be twice my current weight and buzzing around the ceiling :lol:

[1] Did I mention that I have a Gaggia?

Ooh, progress!

This morning’s weight was down quite noticably to 200.8 pounds (14 stone 4.8 pounds, 91.1kg). Lowest since, err, quite some time ago.

Tomorrow’s weight will probably be a wee bit higher, as not only did I not walk home[1] and have another night off the exercise bike, but I’m currently enjoying one of my last bottles of the 2002 Wolf Blass Yellow Label Cabernet Savuignon. This has matured quite nicely, and it’s definitely one of those wines that requires the whole bottle to be finished once opened :eek2:
