No photo for me, either.

Nope never had a pic for an avatar. I tried to put one up once but was unsuccessful and then never got around to trying it again. And I just have to add that I loove pumpkin pie! It's one of my favorites and if I were left unsupervised, I am capable of eating an entire pumpkin pie by myself!Kitkat didn't you have a picture at the side of your name, what happened to it?
Pumpkin is nice mashed and mixed with mash potato.
Snap! I maintain this is absolutely the ONLY way to eat a creme egg!My preferred method of eating one is to nibble a hole in the top, lick out the filling and then eat the rest of the shell... Mmmmmm …
YES!!! I've had this very thought myself. We should write in - maybe they'd do it...mmmmm....My idea of chocolate heaven would be if Cadburys made a giant creme egg Easter egg, but instead of it being a hollow Easter egg which comes with a couple of normal sized creme eggs, it was one huge creme egg with the creme egg filling inside.
Well, as long you eat it at meal time and not in between, and brush your teeth afterwards, chocolate still allowed! (Though perhaps not the all-you-can eat creme egg buffet! )I just hope that my dentist never reads this post as I think I'd be in serious trouble if he did !!!
I would think the sugar in chocolate would have much more of an effect on other health issues (pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, etc.) than on your teeth.
See here: http://www.dentalfearcentral.org/faq/tooth-decay/ . According to the experts (i.e., not me! lol), it's not the amount of chocolate/sweets, but how often we eat it - so having it meal times is fine, but grazing or snacking on it isn't. Given the role of snacking in diet problems, I'd imagine this advice would help that way too! Certainly no calls to give up chocolate, anyway...mmm...chocolate...As long as you brush and floss well after eating sweets, I doubt any dentist would insist you not eat chocolate. Given that you did (brush and floss), I would think the sugar in chocolate would have much more of an effect on other health issues (pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, etc.) than on your teeth. You can get the sugar off your teeth easily by brushing and flossing. Unfortunately there isn't a way to get it out of your digestive tract.
