I Have a Problem.

I am addicted to Cadbury Creme Eggs. All my talk of trying to eat healthier, and respecting my body and what I put in it, blah blah blah, it all gets ignored even more than normal once I spot those little "cartons" on the shelf.

And I've learned not to get the miniature ones, because although that seems like a better choice (built-in portion control and all that), it turns out the smaller size is just not satisfying enough so I find myself cracking open one or two or six. The regular size I can limit myself to one a day.

But it is every day. From whenever I first spot them on the shelf until I run out of my stash. And my stash gets replenished whenever I see them at the store. Usually, it ends up being about a month, but that's still an entire month of me eating one of those things every day. Each egg? Turns out to be 150 calories, but it's also the 5 grams of fat and 22 grams of sugars and nothing whatsoever redeeming about it.

And if you know of a source for these goodies beyond the Easter season?
Please, for the sake of my pant-size, please don't tell me.

Don't know if they are available afterwards, but I think I would kill for one now. Sadly they havn't made it to Croatia.

I'm new here so I thought I would pop in and say hi.
Good luck with your addiction!

Thanks for your comment, and I'll appreciate them all the more now as I savor my last few.
