Warning Lables

Almond Roca Warning LableThe only way I can control myself with these tasties is with a visual reminder. And it helps--most of the time.

That's clever but does it work? :) Must. gain. self. control.

ValleyGirl said...

I'm sure I'd be able to find justification for breaking the rules! I always do!

Mary@notbefore7 said...

Not so sure that would help me at all...you do mean one an hour, right?

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Oh I love those too. It's hard to just eat one. One can maybe. Have a great WW. :)

Babystepper said...

More proof that you must actually have some kind of self-control.

I can guarantee that wouldn't work for me. I'd just get mad at myself and eat two just to spite me.

When my husband was young his mother had to hide things from the kids, She'd put the goodies in a tin and on the top she wrote...Stay Out and this means you Craig ! She still has that tin to this day !

Sometimes ya just need to treat yourself a little :) Enjoy them!

Maddy said...

Yuck! Chuck em in the bin right now! Nasty sickly sweet teeth breaking torturers. Pass the spinach please!
Cheers

This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

Fresh Girl said...

I have my weekly official weigh-in tomorrow morning. There's every indication that it may signal I need to start warning myself in writing. ;)

Crazy Working Mom said...

Hmmm...I should try this!
Thanks. ;)

I like to empty the can and congratulate myself on a job well done! I admire your self-control!

Nadiah Alwi said...

I doubt that it works ;D

I'd even like to take five of them!

Happy WW!

Lori said...

Yummmmmmmm, it must be Christmas!! Happy WW.

Lisa Milton said...

No joke, pure genius.

Although I don't know if I'd obey myself when it comes to Almond Roca...

Michelle, you do mean one for each hand, don't you???

I *love* almond roca!! The only thing that might convince me to take just one piece would be to paste a picture of a big butt on the can.

Irene said...

Yeah, that would NOT work with me. But it is a good idea!

Thea said...

LOL! That would so not work for me. I would just have one...every time I passed the tin.

Lara said...

Wouldn't work for me either. Those things are heavenly.

One year, at our family white elephant exchange, I thought I hit the jackpot when I won a tin of almond rocha.

Until I unwrapped one and found it was a baby carrot. They all were. :)

wayabetty said...

I gave that to a new neighbor who just moved in and it was a hit! It's funny that's on my list of things to buy when I go to BJ's today. I'll be thinking of you Michele!

Patois said...

On those, such a warning would work. On British chocolate? Now ay.

An Ordinary Mom said...

I don't know how well this would work for me :) !!

Sher :) said...

That wouldn't work for me. I'd have to nail it shut! Yum. :)

Carinne said...

I'd take it to mean "only 1 CAN." :)

Kerith Collins said...

I do not allow myself to go near those things anymore. My addiction is long lived. When I was a Campfire girl in Edmonds, WA (over a half century ago), our troop leader took us on a fieldtrip to the Almond Roca factory in Tacoma. I was hooked for life.

Elena Heiress said...

LOL at that. Good idea though ;)
