Popped into the local Thornton's Cafe yesterday. Oh my. It's the first time I've been there ..

Had 1/2 slice of apple shortbread. Delicious. More like a very light sweet apple pie. Also had 1/2 a danish pastry and two free thornton sweets :clap:

Aaah, but the drink. 1 toffee chocolate. They asked me if I wanted marshmallows or cream and I said "both" because I was feeling rebelious. DH nearly kicked me:confused: :D

So ate the cream with a spoon, then the lushious warm, melting marshmallows, drank the chocolate and was left with the most gorgeous thick, warm liquid toffee (spoon job again:D)

Oh my, truly yum and coming in a approx 4 million calories for the lot:cool:

Was angelic enough to skip lunch :D

That sounds wonderful. Can almost taste it with you

Never heard of Thornton's Cafe before. Are they new or just down your neck of the woods?

i had a death by chocolate
And what a lovely way to go :D

It's so rare for me to even go in a cafe. Certainly is nice to be able to eat the odd stuff like that without feeling embarrassed at that everyone is looking at me and wondering why I'm not dieting.

Everything in moderation eh.

i'm SO GLAD we don't have one in caerdydd :)

When i worked in tigertiger (massive nightclub, very expensive, you didnt get in unless you were wearing a suit) we had a 8ft chocolate fountain, and whatever was left over (or hidden) was allowed to go to the staff. Not good with all the free staff drinks :(

Know exactly what you mean about the Thorntons cafe - way too many nice temptations!!! And those free choccies on the counter - it would be rude not to - wouldn't it? :)

Indeed it would ;) Will definitely be going back to check on the toilets;) But if I eat anything, will have it as a replacement for dinner :D Or perhaps a whole days food:eek:
