So, my friend and I would ALWAYS try our best to have chocolate bars on us while traveling. Usually we would buy some before going somewhere, put them in our packs and then just break a square off every now and then, sort of like cigarette but much more sporadic. When they were gone, we would make it our business to acquire more [preferably vegan, expensive ass dark] chocolate and repeat the process.

Recently someone told me that not everyone does this. Whoa, really?
Do y'all make it a priority to have chocolate with you? Or are we just hella decadent?
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I read this book by Ranolph Fiennes about walking across Antarctica dragging all their supplies on sleds. Brutal unsupported trip, dangerous, they both lost like 30% of their bodyweight over the course of it. They ate a half a chocolate bar every day. Now I hold that in the back of my mind and don't feel guilty about eating as many chocolate bars as humanly possible.

Give me glucose or give me death.

Hell yeah!
I make it a point of keeping chocolate on me!
In my opinion, it is one of the staple theft items, great dark ass chocolate that otherwise would be like $6!
It did not work out all that well tho in the middle of summer, in Nevada, when the giant 1lb. brick of it ya' get from Trader Joe's melted in to this ridiculous ball of candy and nuts!
Great the rest of the time tho!

The SAS Survival Guide lists the chocolate bar as a necessary carry item for morale and in case of dangerously low blood sugar. I prefer dark with as high cocoa content as possible.

When I need Chocolate fix, I grind these into a smoothie from Jamba Juice. You can find these at any health-whole food store.

Not only do you get chocolate fix, but a buzz from these marvelous cacao beans. Before X, we chewed these at music festivals. Natural high in a bag. Level energy through out the day, and they wont melt in the heat. These magic beans allow me to work 16hr shifts. I dont miss the caffine crash from energy drinks.

Check em out. [emoji41]

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
