Got to have me some chocolate dip!

So nice having a Foster's so close to our hotel. I like that they now post the calories for each item. It's not as bad as you'd think!

Fully loaded sugar bombs! They give you packed super dense ice cream. Any size will resuscitate the dead. Calories are disclosed and yes it does taste good but too sweet for me.
