Cutting Back Cravings for Lent

Happy Ash Wednesday! As it is the official start of Lent today, I thought it was only fitting to share what I will be giving up limiting myself to for the next 40 days. I am ardent dark chocolate lover and have no shame sticking to high percentages of cocoa. I either snack on delicious dark chocolate covered almonds or indulge in a few squares after dinner. My cravings for chocolate could use a little break, but I seriously don't think I could make the next 6 weeks without a single bite. I've decided to limit my indulgences to three times a week, hoping this satisfies but also curbs back those sometimes irresistible cravings. Below are some of my absolute favorite dark chocolate products that I look forward to splurging on until Easter. 

::Justin's Mini Peanut Butter Cups:: Seriously the best bite sized things ever created!
::Bark Thins:: The struggle to refrain from eating the whole bag.
::Alter Ego Deep Dark Sea Salt:: The perfect combo of salty and sweet (bitter). 

In past years, I haven't executed my Lent plans very well, so I'm interested to see how long I can stick it out. 
Are you giving up anything for the next 40 days?
