It's a long time since the last time I had chocolate. Can you say that?

well, some of us no doubt can, but it wouldn't be true for me!
You could also say
"It's a long time since I last had chocolate"
I think "It's been a long time since the last time I had chocolate" sounds better, doesn't it?

What about it's been a long time since the last time I had chocolate topped with ice-cream?
@ learner - not realy better, just alternative, equally valid.

@ maj - LOL - dont you have chocolate on top of ice cream rather than ice cream on top of chocolate?
Thank you Suzi..

Yes, Maj.. I think it would be better if you put the chocolate on top..

But anyway, hope you could have had some this weekend.. I had a great chocolate cake yesterday! Emotion: cake

Maj wrote "chocolate topped with ice cream"

and your answer suggests that it refers to "icecream on top of chocolate"

well if I cross out "with" and write "chocolate topped ice cream"

Will it then mean "chocolate on top of ice cream?"

If it will, then plz tell Maj he owes me a "chocolate topped ice cream" for crossing the "with" out
I think you are right, bubu.

Maj - you owe bubu some choc-topped ice-cream - consinder yourself "told" LOL
Dear suzi
what do you mean "consider youself told"

Could you plz explain the phrase, it's contextual meaning
