    I don't know where you shop, but you need to look at somewhere better.
    You jest? I mean when you eat them next December they will be a year old.

    Time-machine.

    Alternatively: eat now, regret later.

    You don't expect this?

    They ARE named after an explosive, after all.

Yeah, one of those two.

    Mmm they looked shut until I unwrapped it. Not complaining, just kinda weird. My first reaction was that some scallywag have pilfered the chocs before wrapping it up. But no, all safely inside.
    Better than my wife's calendar, all the chocs have fallen to the bottom of the packet. So every morning there is a little logic game to release the treat

    Interestingly, the 'Best Before' date on my Hello Kitty advent calendar just so happens to be 'End of November 2014'.

    Daily brain training, with a reward at the end of it. It is possible that some evil genius is doing an experiment on you though...

    Oh my. You do NOT. You NEVER. Never eat an advent sweetie before the day on the door. You don't even fiddle with the door to see what shape is inside. You might as well go dancing in a thunderstorm with a copper umbrella hat on shouting "Come on Thor, take your best shot!"

    This has been a public safety announcement, don't do the things above.

    Hah! Some cunning work there. "Don't even think about buying this on the cheap and having it next year - it will definitely kill you."

    One of the kids spotted my Hello Kitty calendar and asked me if she could have my choccy for today, as she'd 'accidentally' eaten hers for today on the 29th November. I'd better warn her of the ensuing calamity that is about to befall her.

    No, there IS an IT God. We're being punished with Win8.

    I can imagine the fallout from the parents if you actually do that...
