Booze delivery distraction


I just walked to the shop to fetch a magnum to satisfy my all to familiar sugar craving since giving up alcohol. Starting being good on Monday but still in holiday mode at the moment. As I was leaving a booze delivery was being taken in to the shop. Crates and crates of all my fave drinks. I couldn't get away quick enough. Only when I'd walked about 5 mins did I realise I was that distracted I'd left my dog behind and had to go back!

Sorry never thought about the fact you might not have magnums. It's icecream covered in milk chocolate, thankfully I didn't go and buy malt liquor.

Icecream in Australia and also UK I think. You should maybe stock up on the sweet treats Oswin so you don't need to go to the shop which may be dangerous at this stage. If walking the dog helps maybe you could map out a non shop route. Best of luck, Jude

Oh, that Magnum. I only started seeing them here in the grocery freezer in the U.S. about a year or so ago.

Wiki says:
In 2011, Magnum ice cream was launched in the US and Canada with six varieties: Double Caramel, Double Chocolate, Classic, Almond, White and Dark.

Ah, this thread is near and dear to my heart already. Two flavors of cream in my freezer and two boxes of italian ices for a quick cold fix.
