Chocolate, Yummy!

I got this email today and thought it was pretty neat!

Your age by CHOCOLATE...

I am not sure how or why this works but it does! Something fun to play with for a minute or two.


Don't tell me your age; you'd probably lie anyway-but the Hershey Man will know!

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST! Work this out as you read...

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 54. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759 ..If you haven't, add 1758.

6.. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.You should have a three digit number

The first digit of this was your original number(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)



  1. This didn't work for me....I guess I'm doing it wrong. GRR!

  2. I had to look it up because I'm a nerd...Here's what I found online:
    Determine how many times a week you eat or want to eat chocolate. It must be a number between 1 and 10, including 1 or 10.
    Let's say you eat chocolate 8 times a week (we won't tell).
    Multiply that number by 2.
    8 x 2 = 16
    Add 5 to the previous result.
    16 + 5 = 21
    Multiply that by 50.
    21 x 50 = 1050
    Add the current year (Gregorian).
    1050 + 2009 = 3059
    Subtract 250 if you've had a birthday this year. If you haven't had a birthday this year, subtract 251.
    Let's say your birthday hasn't passed yet.
    3058 - 251 = 2807
    Subtract your birth year.
    Assuming you were born in 1975...
    2807 - 1975 = 832
    You'll end up with a 3 or 4 digit number. The last two digits are your age (if you're under 10 years old there will be a zero before your age). The remaining one or two digits will be the number of times per week you eat or want chocolate (the number you specified in the first step).
