True Colors Thursday - Chocolate Brown

What a yummy Thursday this is! If you want to play along on true colors Thursday, let Blue know - it's easy!
Today's color is chocolate brown!

That's mom's chocolate brown teddy bear that she got on her very first Christmas as a baby! It's a Knickerbocker! He used to have a yellow ribbon around his neck and a growler in his tummy but both are long gone!
Do you think mom will bend the rules and let us have some of this chocolate brown stuff, Mitch?!
I'm dreaming of eating chocolate brown cake! What a bummer that it can't be for real! What about some of this chocolate brown soy milk, mom? We hear that it's very good for you!
No way could we do a chocolate brown post without M&M's!
Next week's color is pale pink!

So until next time...............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

What a nice teddy bear! LS said looking at all the chocolate brown makes her want to eat some chocolates now. Too bad for us doggies though.

Hi Maggie & Mitch

Lots of forbidden foodables appear to be that color. Momma drinks that soy milk stuff too!

BJ Roan said...

Fantastic collection of chocolate browns, especially the M&M's. I'm getting hungry looking at all these chocolates!

BRUTUS said...

MMmmm - getting hungry looking at all that chocolate! Or lab Mason thinks that just because he's got chocolate-colored fur, that he should be able to eat chocolate too! He talks dad into giving him oreos, even though mom says that's not good for him....

Have a great day!

Ooh, too bad you can't play with (or eat) most of those chocolate brown items. You'll have to content yourself with just teddy.

Hollie and Janie said...

Mmmmmm..... all that chocolate looks yummy! I wouldn't really know. Mama always graciously eats the chocolate out of anything we share (ie mint chocolate chip icecream!). I love the M&M pic!!
Love,
Janie

Brind'Amour said...

All that chocolate talk is making me hungry. Not that I know what chocolate is but I know it's one of the 4 major food groups. Well, at least that's what my mom says.

Bree and Reilly said...

Those are all great things for the chocolate color. I have never tried chocolate as mom says it is bad for doggies...but I do occasionally have a carob bud which mom says is like chocolate.

Chocolate is such a temptation for us, and it is everywhere here. Lucky for us the humans get us some tasty treats to take our minds off the brown stuff. Great post.

Martha Basset said...

Hi Maggie & Mitch
Our mum especially wants to thank you for that lovely pic of the chocolate cake!!!
She is trying very hard right now to avoid the brown stuff and your post has made her mouth water.
We loved the little bear - how cool to have kept him all these years.
Great colour/color post guys - trying to use the spelling from across the pond!!
love
Martha & Bailey xxx
PS Well done for noticing the little waving basset! That took our mum an inordinate amount of time........she is supposed to be home working!!!!

Tank said...

I stole some chocolate chip cookies out of a bag left on the floor last year... they were very, very delicious! I think I need a snack now.

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Dad eats chocolate ice cream every night, Mom eats one spoon full all most every night. I never get to eat it ever!!! I wish I could!
Great chocolate post!

Jake of Florida said...

Mom still has her very old and very flat (from being slept on) chocolate brown teddy bear.

We love chocolate brown, sadly from a distance -- except when I, Jakey, got into some well -- but not too well -- hidden Ghiardelli chocolate.

But Mom and Dogdad more than make up for it!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Brownie said...

Oh the brown bear is so cute!

My momster loves chocolate, but as usual, I don't get any either! BOL!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

That's right, chocolate brown can not be completed without M&M's presence!
Thanks for visiting Star& Riley, our new friends, that means a lot to them and to us.
Love y'all

Sue said...

Chocolate brown- even the words sound flavorful. Fudge's name is Deerpark's Chocolate Legacy so we have our own chocolate dog.

Chow Chow said...

Oooh...those are irresistible chocolates! Too bad they are toxic to dogs but such yummy food for the humans!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

Your Mom's teddy bear is cute. I (Hershey) would have destroyed it but Kaci likes her toys - even if she throws them in the air.

We like the chocolate brown items you chose to post. Mama wants to know - did you put the M&M's there because your names begin with an M?

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Joe Stains said...

Being from PA Mom says hersheys makes some super duper chocolate for sure. BUT she does like that fancy Belgian stuff every once in a while too!!
