Your Age By Chocolate Math

I got this in an email and thought it was fun and that y'all might enjoy it

Ok these things always amaze me how they work out...but hey anything about Chocolate is OK with me...

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


This is pretty neat.

It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read. Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out! This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.

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 5

4. 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!!!!!)


Mine was right on at 217 and my moms at really works

716, you're right it does work.

Holy cow! It worked .

It'd be interesting to see the formula behind that operation.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Very good!

I've seen something like this many times before though and they all always say this is the only year it works. Weird..

Wow! It was right! I think the only year part would have something to do with:

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.
