- It is one of the rare things in life that is better than I think it will be: the texture and flavor are more delicious than I expect. It never disappoints. How many things in life are like that?
- I don't eat it very often. The fact that it comes in a large-ish jar, which I know from experience that I can consume in a couple of days, means that I never buy it. I get it from time to time as a gift, or I order it on crepes. This rarity makes it an extra-special treat.
- When I'm eating it, it is such a sensuous delight that all unpleasant feeling disappear. I feel no pain, no sorrow, no unhappiness--only pure pleasure. As a chronic worrier, this respite is welcome indeed. It's my drug of choice.
