“Forget love. I’d rather fall in chocolate.” or so the saying goes. Why not have both? At the same time?
Chocolate has long been touted as an aphrodisiac and this is likely because it contains two chemicals: Trypotphan and phenylethylamine. Trypotphan is related to serotonin, the happy hormone and phenylethylamine is an amphetamine-like stimulant that is released when we feel aroused.
However, beyond the scientific claims, chocolate is just yummy- and it has multiple possibilities for all sorts of applications. Sharing, for one.
Many things taste good dipped or coated in chocolate. Or butterscotch, (another favorite of mine). Don't think I have to spell this out for you! And the exercise that follows can burn off any guilty calories too!
So get creative and choose your favorite: milk chocolate, semi-sweet, dark, white, bitter-sweet, and enjoy, knowing it’s all good for you! (Most things are, in moderation, although I’m not really good at practising moderation with chocolate.)
