I don't even really like them that much but every year my husband will get me a pack of 3 of them freshly dipped and we share them with our son....nope not this year.

I would think he would get you some roses instead this year. You'll be able to have regular strawberries in a few weeks, so you have that to look forward to.

That’s a nice thought but I don’t like flowers. Such a waste of money lol

Fair enough, but chocolate covered strawberries are a waste of a perfectly good strawberry.

I have one in my office -- love it.

I don't have the best green thumb but I try my best to keep it alive :)

Good for you. You're looking at the long range benefits of sticking with the program as opposed to rationalizing how to go around it. That strawberry will taste much better next year.

why not a healthy sub? :) I say "healthy" cuz um, depends who you're asking! ;) Why not get some of the low carb strawberry Greek yogurt (on your plan) and add a squeeze of sugar free Hershey's chocolate Syrup to it? :)

I would get my HEB Plain Greek Yogurt and Walden Farms Strawberry pancake Syrup and the SF Hershey's and go to town with "dessert"! :) And say, better living through chemistry as I shoveled it down my piehole. :)

That sounds good. But i refuse to go to the grocery store again. While the bastards are freshly dipping strawberries right when you walk in. We don’t have a HEB here...where do you live? In the south?

Next year you can have one. And you will look fantastic and feel better than you have years I bet.

Think of that!

Yes exactly. Thank you. But it felt good to whine about this to people that get it :)
