Boxes of Chocolates


Much to the dismay of my waistline, I generally don't discriminate when it comes to Halloween confectionery: I'll eat almost anything.


But I certainly have my favourites. And that means, by definition, I also have my least-favourites.


If you were to empty the boxes shown in the photo onto a table and ask me to put my favourites in a bag, I'd fill the bag (in order) with KitKat, Coffee Crisp, Sour Skittles, Twix, Caramilk, Crispy Crunch, Aero, and Starburst.


Everything else would be perfectly acceptable when my favourites weren't available... they'd just never be preferred when they were. And if those leave-aside treats weren't included in the box at all, I wouldn't miss them.


But you might.


Your bag of favourites might look completely different than mine.


In a best case scenario, it would be completely opposite; then we could get together, make a few trades, and both leave absolutely delighted.


That's not always possible, though. And when it's not, you savour the treats you love for as long as they're available, work through your less-favourite treats until they're done, and forget about out the ones you simply can't tolerate.


Life is like a box of chocolates.
