Don't Do It

I went shopping with Jessica, and we decided to treat ourselves to a 'Chocolate Temptation' in Thorntons cafe.

The lady poured chocolate syrup into the glasses, then scooped in Thorntons own ice cream. Next, came marshmallows, then hot, frothy milk, the whole thing covered in whipped cream and chocolate flakes. (2,000 calories?)

Don't bother. They looked wonderful, but tasted awful. There were too sweet (sickly) and the combination of cold ice cream and hot milk, just made for a tepid drink. Neither cold nor hot. Horrible. We both left them. (And we took the cakes home.) Stick to the continental chocolates!
