This was not my first visit to Koko Black, but rather my 4th, and this time I was going to play it smart. Too many times I had given in to choc-brain, the obstinate part of my brain that screams “Gimme chocolate! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” every time the chocolate proximity alarm is tripped.
Stepping into the Claremont store I was calm and collected, not wanting to alert Ninja to the battle that was about to take place. I was confident that this time I was not going to be rolled out of there. I was not going to feel the regret and nausea from eating too much chocolate. And then I saw them, choc-brain’s new weapon against me. Bunnies. Quail eggs. More bunnies. Koko Black had their Easter wares on display.
Although I felt powerless against the cuteness of Easter, I did manage to maintain my composure, and not go nuts on the chocolate. I walked away from this experience satisfied with the food, service and most of all myself.
